For the design of the frame I set myself a mission which is to keep the seat tube away from the bottom bracket with minimum impact on the stablity of the frame. Also, I wanted to give my frame a unique look. Therefore, after several sketches I got this design, making the bottom half of the curved bottom tube replace the half of the seat tube. In order to balance the radical shape of the frame, I chose the paint color to be black with gold sparcle, the color which is not that loud but still special. It also matches the Ukiyo-e tiger on the head tude.
