The entrepreneurs from Wisconsin creating chromed carbon bicycle frames in a farm shack

The office has been constructed from “plastic sheeting, 200 light bulbs, 2 exhaust fans, and about 1,500 staples”

Here at Cycling Weekly we're not convinced this is a 'world first', but the duo's method of painting, and ability to create a 'production level' system where bikes can be painted at a relatively low expense, and quickly, is a new one on us.
