The guys at Shand were good enough to drop me a line to let me know the updates on some projects we had chatted about on my visit. The Skinnymalinky is nearing completion and is going to be launching at the Blenheim Palace Festival of Cycling next weekend (18t/19th Aug) where the guys have secured a stand. Russ describes the bike as ...It’s basically our take on a modern randonneur made with fillet brazed 853. Sounds good to me! The guys are running a different colour palette on this than they did for the orange and acid ‘Stooshie’ and ‘Stoater’, but the guys have now brought painting in house so everything is hand done under one roof, so you can in fact have any colour you want! Check out their promotional video below, lovely work!
