    What Tom designed for me is just so wonderful and special. OMG, the ride.

    And, the paint homage to Quebec is so perfect....

    This looks amazing. Did you buy this across the hall, right? I was seriously considering it. It's gorgeous.

    More pictures of my Spectrum. What appear to be boring clinchers are actually Hed C2 tubular rims built by Ergott using White Industries hubs & CX Ray/Sprint spokes. Sharp eyes will see the red valve stem from an older Vittoria on the front tire.

    That's a great looking bike. Is that a 31.6 seatpost?

    Default Spectrum Steel

    Bad photo, dirty truck - none of it matters, this bike is OM_G good. I've tried out and let pass a bunch of bikes during this covid stay at home, and I'm still hanging on to more than I should, but this one is the one, the only one that has don't even think about letting it go status. My Spectrum Super ti is super. This is better. The liveliness, the riding manners, the steel fork. It's looks may not be for everyone - a sloping skinny tubed, lugged bike, but it is everything I asked for from Tom, and then some.
