    yea, the damn things get in your blood...I was actually thinking I would be able to wait 4 more years after I sold the used one I had managed to find. Think again.

    Default thank you Sean...

    I just put new cables, oval concepts bar/stem combo, Sachs bar tape and plugs , Vittorias 320tpi, some new stinky lube...the bike is Glee straight up. I visited a local bike shop the other day and the whole service department stopped and studied it like a jewel while I shopped. Better than all that is that I love to ride it and put on about 175 a week on it...it's not hanging on the wall.

    Today I rode about 55 miles with the Lezyne rep on his Cannondale with Campy Bora Ultras...we passed a tri squad and one guy decided to hang with us...he managed to hang for about two miles and fell off, I think the skinny Sachs tubes have special aero properties.

    Default My updated Sachs

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/4410157...n/photostream/

    Just put the Campy Chorus 11 on this Spring - love it. Had it originally with Campy Daytona - yes, Daytona. Need to have some new wheels built to complete the upgrade.

    grant,

    i have been intrigued and tormented by this bike ever since i first came across your posting. it is unique perhaps for more elements than i can discern but at least three important aesthetic ways: (i) single frame color without the contrasting head tube and seat tube panels, (ii) your chosen frame color is this champagne and not the signature red or other primary color, and (iii) threaded steerer tube.

    please let us in on your thinking, tell us how you came to these choices, so that we may know how it became possible to develop a masterpiece that is equally beautiful to the signature of the master.

    thanks much for your (as always) thoughtful, informed and insightful response,

    dave

    Default My Sachs

    Ecnlosed some pictures of my Sachs signature road. I finished it today. Built with Record 11, PMP post, Rotor SX stem, FSA Wingpro compact bars, HHB tape, Aliante carbon saddle and my old Neutron ultra wheels. Cannot wait to ride it, most likely tomorrow.

    thanks dave.

    This frame was built as a showcase of Richard's immense talent for the 2006 Handmade Show.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/9866331...7600706476140/

    After visiting with Richard the previous year, I decided to ask for something a little extra
    special. I wanted those the traditional skills Richard put to good use in two previous
    projects for my frame.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/9866331...7600706480412/

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/9866331...7600706485522/

    These became Richard's hommage to Nagasawa, Masi, and all the history that
    came before... as he modified a set of vintage lugs, for traditional size tubes,
    (not his modern over-sized ones) using the older, narrower fork crown,
    and threaded steerer.

    The colour came from a 70's Masi that I had seen, and JB did his magic.
    it's an incredible task to apply the paint as thinly as he did, without hiding
    any of the amazing metalwork beneath it. Clean and simple was the goal,
    i think it came out OK... :)

    Default First ride today

    Today was a quick 50km virgin ride on the new Sachs.... Smilling all the way. I cannot believe that the fit it so good for me. It really feels like this bike was built for me. All the contact points as shown above are within 1 or 2mm of my Strong. Once in a lifetime opportunity I could not miss. Even though one more road bike was the last thing I needed (I sound like my wife now).

    I was particularly impressed on how solid the bike feels downhill. Ultra stable.

    I am glad I waited a whole week to receive it.

    burp -
    despite being conceived as an homage, this is one of the most single well-crafted frames i have ever made atmo.

    Congrats on your Sachs, and it is a big one.

    How have you enjoyed it so far?
