    Some people don't like red accents on bikes. I'm not one of those people. Great bike, sir.

    ^^Ah, yes. As seen on page 42. You need to post a side view of that bike to show off the cool paint job.

    What's new from the last pictures I posted? Well, there's a new Enve 2.0 fork and Deda Superleggero RS stem painted by Adam Blumenthal of Now You're Finished!, Enve 3.4 tubulars, and I decided to forgo the titanium seatpost with a Ritchey WCS Carbon post, because you've gotta match the seatpost with the bars, right?

    Anyway, I'm going on 5 years with this bike, and it's just as awesome as it was when I first got it.

    A shameless cross-post from today's ride thread. But the ride threads are ephemeral and this thread is immortal.

    And this bike is timeless.

    RELEASE 03/01/2019:

    After a combined 80 years of building frames and bicycles, Tom Kellogg and Jeff Duser of Spectrum Cycles have decided to close up shop. Orders for new bicycles will be taken until July 31st of this year, and once those builds are complete, Tom Kellogg and Jeff Duser are stepping away from their passion of making beautiful bicycles. Not one more Spectrum Cycles frame will be built.

    Tom began building bicycles in 1976. Not only is that a lot of experience and a lot of frames, but it is also a lot of time at the bench. We are proud of what we have accomplished over the last four decades and appreciate the countless years of joy that our work has provided for thousands of cyclists. We are honored that so many people have put their trust in us, given us an opportunity to work for them and to make a living doing what we love.

    It is nearly time for us to walk away from our work. And that is the plan: to walk away from the bench without regret. We won't sell the business. When we hang up the torch, put down our last file and shoot our last coat of clear, we're done.

    There is now only one chance left to get a new Spectrum frame. We are taking orders for custom steel and titanium frames for the next five months. We will then close our order book and take as long as we need to complete those orders. We are not limiting the number of orders, but we will not accept any order after July. Don't wait. Time flies. Trust us on that.

    We also have a limited number of '70s frame kits available for builds if you are interested in real mid-'70s steel frames built by folks who cut their teeth in that era. Our modern steel frames are higher-performance bicycles, but the old ones sure do look nice and feel wonderful. No one makes them at our level anymore.

    As wonderful as many other modern titanium frames are, Tom has a longer legacy in modern titanium frames than anyone currently building with the material. He has been involved in every one of the modern era's titanium frame advancements and he knows how to make the material sing.

    If you want one of our bicycles, this is your last chance. Hit our website and after looking things over, download the order form for the last frame we will ever build for you.

    As always, very classy Tom. I wish the very best to you and Jeff in retirement.

    Fusion. A combination of only great things when it's a Spectrum.

    Sometimes you get lucky and a bike (or frameset as the case may be) finds its way to you that you swear was built with you in mind, even if you know better...

    This is that. Many thanks to JR59 (John Reineke) for passing it my way (and Kirk007 for taking good care of it when it was in his possession). The first few hundred miles have me thinking this will join my Kirk MRB as a more or less permanent fixture in the garage - which is saying a lot, given the revolving door I have installed. In fact, I'm so enamored with this one that I'm trying to scrounge funds and finagle a trip back east to get fit up for a steel roadie from Tom before the queue is closed for good.
