I suggested to Darrell McCulloch, the heart, soul, internal organs and brains of Llewellyn that he should include cheeky 'props' which can be seen in the bouyant finish of his chrome lugs.
Talk about a dressing down....
'CHROME!!! THEY'RE NOT CHEAP CHROME!'Once I'd calmed him down, he explain the toil in producing the most beautifully polished stainless lugs available to man and woman.
Here's the difference between cheap chrome (even Colnago's patina after a decade) and POLISHED Stainless steel.
I apologise for the confusion, but I'm sure I'm not the first to have marvelled at his frames admiring the contrasting finish of paint and mirrored surfaces.
