    Love the color scheme on that bike Artie! The bidons aren't too shabby either. I need to find some which will go with unpainted ti.

    Had a great ride up Mt. Tam this week. Tam had defeated me the last time I'd attempted it and I'd turned back before the summit. This time with better gearing and a better fitted bike, I made it to the top for some truly spectacular views. One of my best days on a bike ever. Nothing left in the tank when I got home though.IMG_20150312_125955.jpgIMG_20150312_124205.jpg

    With chainstays like these, how could I possibly fail?

    Thanks! That's a delfin grey with a nice silver
    which Steve picked. It came out better than I
    hoped. Your Ti pig is looking fabtastic.
    Cheers!

    Not the greatest picture since I was in a rush (the lightning doesn't do the paint job justice among other things), but got my new Max from Steve this week. She is finally all ready for her maiden voyage tomorrow morning. I can't wait!

    Which colour is that? Looks like chocolate on my screen. Lovely bike by the way, I was really obsessing about their Max frames a while ago, when finally my bank account manager (wife)
    brought me back to planet earth.

    I think the official name of the color is Velvet Red. It was originally a BMW / Mini paint color. It's interesting in dimmer lighting it looks more brown but in the sunlight it is clearly red. The picture below was taken by Steve and you can get a better view of the color.

    Octave, it was taken at our race, GDVC Crit #1. I was at the SuperCrit the day before though. I'm not really a fan of that course but when you have an itch to race, you scratch it.

    I feel justified in borrowing this photo from Maglia Rosa's Facebook feed as the bike is mine, even if they photo isn't. It is coming up on its sixth birthday this June and I just had it overhauled after the winter and upgraded it to Force 22 .

    Hi all, this is my first post, but I've been a lurker here for a long time. Just so excited that I couldn't wait to share. This just came back from paint last week, and Steve sent along the photos today. A Team Pro Disco, with more of a Strada Bianca geometry--built for some gravel grinding good times in the PNW. Color is the same blue-silver ppg paint code of a '66 Mustang. Can't wait for it to be built up!

    That may be a disco, but that ain't no foolin' around.

    Love the color, too!

    Yes! Richie-issimo OS lugs with life up front and spirit in the back (which Steve affectionately referred to as a "Mullet" ;)

    Went with a Wound Up carbon fork since it is a disc frame. Steve advised that a steel fork would have a tendency to try to unwind itself unless you seriously over-built it. Haven't seen the fork yet, but should be a nice match. I'll post more pics once it is built up. Martin did an amazing job. Can't wait to see this in person.
