    Lordy. Do you have more pics somewhere? Would love to order a Bishop sometime in the next year or two. Anyone know how long Chris' lead times are these days?

    I think his lead time is around 4-6 months.

    Thanks. I really don't think it's possible to make a better bike. In so many ways.....

    New Bishop/Velocolour collabo. Telekom homage.
    Mixed columbus main triangle and stainless rear end. With the Ritchey fork can take 32mm tires. Not sure those brakes will tho; maybe change them out later on. Handled 60 miles of dirt roads in Vermont this weekend like a champ.

    Thx Matt! Yes, I'm a lucky fellow to have it and the best part of the process was getting to know Chris and Tommy better and ride with them several times on their favorite Baltimore county roads. Tommy Barse/Cutlass Velo put it all together for me. Next step is a set of custom wheels from T-snatch to compliment this ride.

    Many miles and incredible memories logged on mine. Stripped it down for Campy 12, DEDA RS, Astral/W.I. rebuild. Can't wait :)

    Goodness, I bet that's a snappy ride. Looks as though that's a VERY short wheelbase or CSs - with that rear wheel tucked in there so elegantly close to the ST.

    If the process is more important than the result, you play. If the result is more important than the process, you work.

    Itīs a fat tire there and a slightly laidback seat angle it seems.
    I came here for the socks.

    Think the bike is leaning and Bishop uses those fastback stays so changes the perception a bit. But yeah he doesn't build them to go slow.

    Correct. The tire measures about 33mm.
