Bill S. down in Northampton, MA is the proud owner of this new baby blue road machine.
Custom fit, solid components and a lightweight steel tube set make this bike snappier, more comfortable and more fun than any bike that Bill could have bought off-the-shelf.
SRAM Rival 22 drivetrain, Rolf Aspin SL wheels, Conti Gatorskin tires, Zipp cockpit, Cane Creek headset, Fizik saddle. All solid, reliable and well made. All work together beautifully. A bicycle is much more than the sum of its parts, in my opinion. Great care is given in choosing componentry to meet a rider's needs, budget, and the overall design goals of the project.
Made right here in my shop in Putney, VT.
A compact crankset and an 11-28 cassette will help Bill spin up some of the hilly terrain that we have here in New England.
Room for 28mm tires is standard on my road frames. Some, like this one, can probably fit even larger.
It was a total pleasure working with Bill, from the personal fitting that started the whole process, to the conversations we had in the design phase, to delivery and setup of the completed bicycle. Enjoy the ride, Bill!
