Limited Gold Series Roadbar TLO
The gold edition started when Jan Frodeno won Olympic Gold in Beijing riding a Schmolke Road Bar.
This outstanding success was the inspiration for manufacturing the first gold edition which has gained much attention in the trade press.
A real Schmolke Carbon special the gold edition comes covered in a gauzy, masterly plated, gold skin.
Gold edition items are custom orders and take about 8 weeks to complete. The additional cost for a gold editition item is 300 Euros per piece.
The gold edition look is achieved by adding a layer of actual silver coating and followed by a gold-paint on top, covered by several layers of clear coating. So no, there is no actual gold involved and you should not bury it in your backyard as a payment backup in case of a financial crisis. But it is a very limited item and will look fantastic on your bike or mantelpiece for years to come.
Design: Please note that the gold edition design is not a full gold painting but we leave out the sensitive parts such as for example the stem area of a handlebar or the clamping area of the seatpost in order to avoid scratches. But if you prefer a full gilding we can of course do this. If so, please mention this in the comment section at the checkout.
