Strawberry decals red-01.  40 year commemorative decals designed by Kelley R. Dodd (www.krdpdx.com) and manufactured by Gary Prange (www.sssink.com).  These dry-fix decals are for professional application and must be clear coated for durability.  $25 postpaid.  To order, please contact Andy. PayPal and good check accepted.  Why the name Strawberry?  Sort of a long story.  In 1970 after graduating from engineering school, I lived in the Cotswolds near Bulls Cross, Stroud, a few miles from Gloucester.  Once a week I rode in a  massed start road race in the Bristol area and during one of the train trips down to Bristol I learned of a road race across the English/Scottish border held the week before the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh.  This sounded like an adventure, so I headed north on the train with my new Bob Jackson bicycle.  The road race included national team members and it was no sooner apparent that I was out of my depth than I was desperately off the back of the pack touring the highlands of Scotland.  A week later the weather was still abysmal but the scenery cycling down Loch Ness was beautiful.  Returning south, I spent a few days in London and ordered a Hetchins cycle frame for a girlfriend.  My interest in cycle frame construction was piqued by the Hetchins shop visit.  Fast forward, I returned to Portland and thought to attempt to fabricate cycle frames, but under what moniker?    My father, Lawrence Fraser Newlands, Scottish on both sides, suggested the Fraser crest.  Research into the Fraser name in Scotland shows Norman roots from the mid - 12th. century and that it is derived from the French word fraise, meaning Strawberry.  However, the origin of the name Fraser is disputed, and indeed, the name may be a pun on the strawberry flowers on the Fraser heraldic crest.  All in good humor, the name "Strawberry Bicycle" was trademarked in 1971.  The new version decals shown above include the Fraser moto: Je suis prest (I am ready).  It was decided to not include the war cry.  The Frasers were actually kind of a bloody minded lot in the old days.

Strawberry 2013 Custom Road Frameset. Here is an offering for cyclists looking to purchase a fine handbuilt frameset (custom frame + fork + headset) who have frame geometry settled in their mind. The frames are hand brass brazed in Reynolds 631 Air Hardening steel tubing. Why brass brazing? Reynolds 631 pre-brazed strength is in the range of 800-900 MPa and the after brazed strength is significantly higher. Quoting Reynolds " The strength to weight ratio of the air hardening steels is equal to that of quality titanium and aluminum frames. A normal chrome molybdenum steel will lose strength in the joints after the heat has been applied. This material (631) INCREASES in strength when heated to around 850 degrees C (1560 degrees F), (note: 850 degrees is the BRASS BRAZING temperature - silver brazing does not achieve this increase in strength) and the recommended braze metal is used per AWS Classification, RBCuZn type. As the frame cools the tubing increases in strength to well in excess of the as delivered values shown above. This unique air hardening property of Reynolds 631 provides additional stiffness through reduced micro-yielding at the joints, allowing stiffer frames with excellent fatigue strength when compared to standard chrome molybdenum and excellent ride quality to be constructed." An Enve road carbon fork is matched to the frame and is sold assembled with a 1-1/8" headset. The frames are fabricated with Marchetti fixtures in the Strawberry Workshop (shop pics may be viewed by clicking on the Mechanique link), Portland, Oregon by Andy Newlands who has over forty (check out the new belt buckle!) years experience in the cycles engineering and fabrication field. Materials include the finest investment cast bottom bracket (English threading), lugs, dropouts, Strawberry designed wishbone rear triangle with the new LAN71 Integrated Seatpost Binder, and full compliment of braze-on's. Paint scheme includes customer's choice of body color (red, green, blue, purple, apricot, or your favorite. Let me know if you wish to receive an Imron color chart to facilitate the choice). Cost is $2300 for one color powder paint or $2800 for wet paint (pretty near whatever color scheme you can dream up and my friend Keith Anderson can execute) Ex Works, Goose Hollow, Portland, Oregon. Shipment via UPS throughout lower 48 states is $100.00. To receive a four color brochure and order form (pdf order form is now online) in the mail, please go to the contact link. Note: these frames are close clearance - not fender friendly.
