    Sweet. The kitchen is nice, too.

    That's all paint, right? Even if not, it's master craftsmanship.

    The red, green and purple one is painted on the top tube, down tube a part of the seat tube. The rest is raw Ti. Fun. Those colors are the colors of my club's kit. Cool.

    That white and red Ti embodies some ideas I've been mulling when I finally get to place an order. Not surprised to know it looks even better in real life. Keep 'em coming.

    Lots of folks have asked about our Brevet front racks with integrated QR decaleurs. Here are a few shots which give a bitter idea of how things fit together ... with a few notes:

    This image simply shows that we generally include a fender "foot" in order to support the front of the fender. The miles have shown us that the more support a fender has, the longer they last. Simple.
    img_7620.jpg

    Viewed from above, our racks give full access to all brake adjustments while keeping the integrated decaleur as close to the head tube as possible.

    Side view showing clear access to the brake and reinforcing gussets.

    That's nice and I think it looks cleaner and more streamlined mounting the top mounts on the blades bellow the crown than on the sides of the crown.
    Is the stanchion for the light coming off the bottom mount or off the rack?

    The images I posted of the rack were taken before it was quite finished. The light mount was added after Jeff took the pictures. It is a center mount, just above and forward of the fender foot.

    I owe a much more detailed ride report, but have been busy with school
    In short, I can only repeat what has been said about Tom.
    This bike is exactly what I wanted. It is a race bike that is fenderable with 28s and room to spare.
    Bike fit is perfect--I've been getting compliments on the paintjob and my position. Ive never felt more comfortable and more efficient.
    The little details--the frame pump, the no toe overlap--devils in the details and tom has nailed them all.
    If I ever decide to trade in my MTB for a CX I know who I'm going to.

    So it happened the other day.
    Maybe it was the spring weather
    Maybe it was the new lady friend
    Pedaling uphill, overlooking the river, listening to birdsong
    It felt so natural. "I love my bike!" I caught myself exclaiming to nobody.

    Without a proper camera for the outdoor photo, bedroom eyes, silhouettes and mood-lighting will have to suffice.

    I had the good fortune of meeting Andy out by Shawmont Avenue this afternoon. Nice guy, beautiful bike - hope to see you out on the roads this summer!

    Going up or going down? Either way, impressive you guys could hold a conversation.

    They are down there, not really positioned in the typical spot but lower. Tom insisted, so I did not argue.

    I see... lower center of gravity. So the FD clamp goes under the cage.

    Yeah, Tom's logic was that you only reach for the ST water bottle to switch it when the one on the DT is empty. Which is exactly what I do (I only ride with water on my bottles). So we will see... The FD clamp will be in between the bosses on the ST.
