After running this site for nearly a month it has become clear from the volume of email I’m receiving that people have a lot of questions about these bike frames, and would like a place dedicated to discussing them.
With this in mind, I’ve setup a forum. Based on the correspondence I’ve had, I’ve setup the following sub forums:
Forum user mcrdave posted a great teaser pic of his new FM015. I messaged him for some details and he was kind enough to share some details:
Yeah I’m a graphic designer so I knew kind of what I wanted. Bespoke, subtle but meaningful graphics. First came the name Nostrum – a secret ingredient, a favourite remedy, a cure for all ills. Sums up why I ride!
Then I designed a bespoke logo, a brand name if you like.
Then put out an email on a forum for any good vinyl cutters. Got a quick response and used a firm here in the uk who were great. I got them cut in white and clear 7 series vinyl (high quality, very thin, will last longer than most).
A week later I applied them. Am building the bike up tomorrow, am pretty excited as I can’t wait to get out there and ride it!
Please do use the pics on your site. I think it’s a great resource and I used it for my initial layouts. If you hear of anyone who wants a bespoke graphic please feel free to send them my details and I’ll see what I can do.
Nostrum bike graphics
I love the look of this – I’m hoping to see some complete bike pics!
A reader (thanks Graham!) was kind enough to email me a spreadsheet he’d been working on cataloging all the unbranded carbon bike frame sellers, their AliBaba and Ebay stores and what frames they sell.
Obviously this is a big job, so I’ve turned it into a Google spreadsheet so that everyone can add their knowledge.
Please add everything you know about each seller. If there is something you aren’t sure about or (you think you broke the spreadsheet ) drop me an email and I’ll try and fix it: [email protected]
