Mosaic at NAHBS 2017
We had a chance to talk with Aaron and Philip of Mosaic in Salt Lake City at the 2017 North American Hand Made Bicycle Show. 2017 is an exciting year for Mosaic as they've added a formal finish work program for customers working with Spectrum Paint and Powder Works - including etch work and a full array of color and finish work options. Streamlining this process allows for extra creative expression from their customers in their custom frame designs. Through Spectrum, Mosaic is able to offer six different starting paint layouts with over 30 different color choices as a starting point.
We looked at Aaron's most recent build, a custom Mosaic RT1 named the "Love Bike 3.0" build completely from start to finish by Aaron for his wife Liz. This build took Aaron over 50 hours.
