    I don't believe perfection is attainable. Therefore, your bike does not exist.

    SUMMER CYCLES on Instagram: “#gaulzetti #interclub #kermesse #kermis #racebike . this one was made for criterium racing but is equally at home in any hard fast ride.…”

    Hey Craig, can you tell us a little about this one?
    What informed the design choices, desired handling and ride characteristics etc?

    I'm hoping Craig chimes in on this one. He knows way more about it than I do. However I know a bit. I have the Lilliputian version:


    I had a Venge that I hated. The back wheel would skip and slide on the exit of corners. I had to think about setting up for corners. It was just a lousy bike. To quote my email to Criag: "I want this bike to be a tool for the job of racing criteriums. All else is secondary." Craig proposed the idea of using "kermis" geometry that he ran for races back in the day.

    The bike takes a shorter rake fork and steeper HTA and has some other geometric tweaks that I don't really understand - but they work and it's awesome. The bike is pretty high strung. It's not great to ride no-handed, it's not the bike I pick for base mile rides, and it's a bit nervous at slow speeds. However, it's without question the best bike I've used for short, fast racing. It corners like nothing else. Once you're at speed, it's stable but still turns on a dime.

    All of the drawbacks I mention above are pretty minor and were brought up by Craig well before I gave the go-ahead. I could be totally happy with this as my one road bike, but I enjoy an embarrassment of riches and have another excellent road bike for other occasions.

    I get tons of compliments on the paint. I gave Craig the two main colors and he just ran with it and came up with something way cooler than anything I would have come up with.

    As far as I know, the bike linked in that instagram post is a Craig-sized version of the same bike. It's a really cool take on what a road bike can be.

    I don't race any more, but I want a bike just like this!

    I totally forgot to post this picture last week. The emerald Corzo made yet another successful trip, this time to Colorado. I've bought a few replacements for this bike, but every time it ends up staying in the rotation. I just can't quit it.
