    I'm going Edge 2.0 on mine, but both of my other DeSalvo road bikes have his steel forks and they are awesome imho. I just want to try something different this time.

    thx. The bike was a big project for me and Mike couldn't have executed it any better! I've been super stoked how it turned out. The bike is STIFF even for my big ass, it's not a sunday afternoon stroller.

    its perfect. Its hard going outside the box like that with the paint and for it to come out so well.

    Default 10 year anniversary bike

    this is my second desalvo.
    i have a fixed gear bike from mike and now this 10 year frame.
    both bikes are really nice and mike is a terrific guy.

    the build here is a bit of a mongrel. dura ace calipers and crank and bb. record derailleurs.
    centaur 10-speed levers, 11-speed shape.

    did 72 miles on its maiden voyage and it was a blast.

    Wow, I can't wait until I get mine. You've got me pondering questions I thought I had settled...black seat post? Or splurge for Bold ti? Silver HS? Or Black?

    Default got one of these beauties

    wow mike can build a fine bike.

    mine has eyelets, takes 57 mm brakes, and is built for fat tires and/or fenders but has my favorite race geo.

    she is beautifully constructed and rides great.

    sorry about the small pictures but they are as big as the salon will let me load.

    Default Preserved for posterity

    There's a gentleman over on RBR that has a pretty cool idea of collecting all the 30 bikes, their setups, and their stories. Thought Desalvo 10th owners may be interested in contributing:
