Fiona, as Nicole likes to call the bike, is the third bike I made. The first road bike. Nicole wanted a smaller frame also since she isn't that tall. That called for a slanted top tube.

I managed to get some good deals on the bike parts at swap meets so there are some nice parts on the bike.

Here is the frame after powder coating.

Before taking the frame to the powder coater and before doing the cleanup the frame was given a bath to remove all the flux that was left on it and inside it. I put in a little acid in the water (CLR) to make the process faster. Warm water helps too.

A paper copy of the drawing was made before building this frame to make sure everything lined up correctly.
