Vermilion, sometimes spelled vermillion, when found naturally occurring, is an opaque orangish red pigment, used since antiquity, originally derived from the powdered mineral cinnabar. Chemically, the pigment is mercuric sulfide, HgS, and like all mercury compounds it is toxic.

This bike 'Cinnbar' is not toxic, it's a rocket. I worked with Dan, the new owner, on this creation. When he first saw the frame this color he was sold. Dan imagined the all bike details in his mind and I used that vision to create this fixed gear. 1Off took care of the powder coating and with a custom Brazen Cycleworks wheelset the bike was born.

If you have a vision and want my help to make it a reality, hit me on email. I do one project at a time, but that project could be yours.
