    Oh gawd, that looks amazing Artie... very cool upgrade.
    It's like putting that perfect strap on a watch head. The Columbus decal is a nice touch too.

    Looking forward to some ride reports and how it compares to the ENVE.

    I've actually been thinking about trying a Columbus Minimal carbon fork in my Team Pro.
    Not that I don't like the steel fork, it handles perfectly. Just wondering how it would change the bike and I like experimenting.
    They can be had for less than 200 euros.

    Yes they did. It seemed like a natural choice for this project.

    Thanks!!

    The ENVE fork is such a great fork, I put it through everything... even an endo, and it was always rock solid.
    I just wanted something a little more curvy.
    That Columbus fork is sweet, I believe Jaegher uses them and they look awesome on those frames.
    The MAX decals worked too, I did jack one up upon application so I'm searching for another set of original decals (not the paper knockoffs).
    If anyone has a set lying around hit me up.

    Challenge working with Steve is too many choices -- now he adds carbon back into the mix just to make it more perplexing:)

    How big a tire will you be able to put on your Squadra?
    Holy cow Tim, I'm no geometry expert, but I think this is about exactly my size! Enjoy it.

    Typically don't care to spend more than $65-75 for a pair of tires but with the nicer weather ahead, decided to splurge on a set of Vittoria Corsas gumwall clinchers with the new fangled "graphene technology":
    IMG_3370.jpg
    Didn't mind the "HED ARDENNES" logo action on the wheels when using all black tires but with the gum walls, the logos looked more busy: IMG_3371.jpg

    Some of the decals were lifting, had some scratches/nicks on them so decided it was time to lose them. Peeled off all logos except for the one " HED CL" model sticker and now see why most folks end up de-badging wheels:
    IMG_3377.jpg

    Look forward to trying these tomorrow to see if worth the premium :)

    A healthy dose of Vitamin G for the MAX yesterday.
    The bike rode really great over rough conditions on the Gator RBX.

    Posted this over in the weekly rides thread but it deserves a post here. I think they need to add a picture and description of the wild "steel pig". Road or gravel, this bike never lets me down.

    Was able to try out the Vittoria Graphene tires in the rain yesterday while riding alongside a really super cool, affable guy from Boulder :)

    Nicely done! I had Andy sign my 7-Eleven jersey when I was with him in Boulder, but spaced out on having him sign my ti GP both that time and the next year when I visited with him at the Tour de Steamboat. They say three's a charm....
