Frostbike: Foundry Adds Some Paint for 2015 Harrow, Plus Single Speed National Champ Bike
When you win a national championship, sometimes you get a special bike to commemorate the occation. Such is the case with Tim Allen’s new Stars and Stripes Foundry Harrow cross bike which was given to Tim after winning the Single Speed national Championship on a stripped down Foundry Harrow.
While Tim gets his own painted bike, Foundry is adding some paint to their stock bikes for the coming year, see it after the break.
After plenty of punishment dished out by Tim, Foundry is comfortable saying there are no worries when it comes to running a PF30 eccentric bottom bracket adapter on the Harrow. Running a Shimano crank and a 36×17 gearing, other spec highlights of Tim’s new ride include the TRP Hylex hydraulic single speed brakes and Industry Nine i25 wheels.
Known for their early bikes that were blacked out, Foundry is adding some paint to their bikes but in a typically Foundry way. The Harrow B1 receives a primer grey finish over most of the frame while the B2 gets a darker grey finish (not on hand). The paint job looks really good in person with raw carbon accents showing through wherever the frame looks black. Harrows still run a thru axle fork and disc brakes – features we loved in our review.
Shown with a Wolf Tooth Components CX ring, we’re assuming that won’t be the final spec….
