    Ive seen this bike in person. The frame is absolutely stunning and flawlessly welded. What a tasteful build Steve. I LOVE the painted fork with the bare ti & anodized logos.

    The bike on the right was conceived in 2012 when the Zank road racing team out West started. At the time it was just me and three other guys (in addition to Steve’s posse back east). I remember Steve taking delivery of that frame the first evening of our first training camp in Moab in the Spring of 2013. He worked all night building it up so my brother in law and best friend Aaron could ride it the next day. Such good memories.

    Back on the Zank train! This is my first time trying out aluminum. This orange is highlighter bright! Decals are slate. Built for someone who seems to be my size, the fit seems pretty spot on so far. It came with this stem and bar combo, may have to get a longer stem eventually. Otherwise Chorus 11, enve wheels and seatpost, berk stem and bar combo, normal fabric saddle. weight as pictured is 15lbs 6ozs. crappy garage picture, ill get one out in the wild soon

    Some will gnash their teeth but I'm hoping a refresh will inspire me to get back on this Zanconato more often in the future. I'm downsizing my fleet and for the moment this one stays. To that end I have removed the Shimano 5800 groupset from one of my Look 585s (four 585s is actually too many) and removed the mix of Centaur, Chorus and Record 10-speed from this bike. The 10-speed Campagnolo stuff will be sold off, as will the Look 585 in question. Making room for an all-road Zanconato coming in the next months.

    The 5800 was installed here throughout the day. The Campagnolo group needed at least a new chain and cable set and bar tape, all of which cost more than the 105 front derailleur I needed to source for this build. All the rest of it I had.

    I may need to downsize from a 140mm stem to a 130, with the extra reach of the Shimano levers. Also, the seatpost may need to come down a few millimeters. And yes, I'll have to invest in an appropriate seatpost. These Thomsons remain the least attractive seatposts ever made.

    As mentioned, I'm hopeful a refresh will inspire me to get out on this bike more often, which has been left parked for much of the past couple years. My first test trip around the block was nice. This bike was designed to duplicate the fit and handling of my first Look and is still amazingly similar to the fit and handling of my current Look 585s, of which two will remain in service, with a spare 'just in case'.

    Thanks. Nearly 10 years old now and way ahead of its time. It will easily fit 28mm tires. These are 23s and look laughably small under the brakes. Mike designed it (wisely) to have the pads at the lower end of the caliper slot, allowing larger tires by design, long before the big tire craze in which we currently find ourselves. 25s on wide rims will probably be in the future for this bike. Mike gets all the credit. I really hope to get on this one again more in the future.

    Fizik R5 seatpost will look nice with the 105. And I think the Ritchey C220 does a nice job matching the smaller diameter frame tubes. And it comes in 130mm in a flat black (called blatte.)

    Mike hit it out of the park with this one. It's the bike that I thought someone could build but had not yet seen anyone do it. It fits and handles like my best road bike. Begs for the big ring. Dares you to stand for that next rise, and rewards each pedal stroke with a surge forward. Yet it is as stable and secure as the cross bike in the rough stuff. And it can take even bigger tires than the 35's I have on it.

    Thanks, looking forward to learning some more about it. But the initial results are great.

    Eager to hear your opinion on these, T-Aitch. For the all-road bike I'm thinking on I'm wondering about using Juin or Yokozuno calipers w/my Campy 11 mechanical shifters vs buying Campy hydros.
