    Default Friday PicFest No.434

    Despite giving myself over to 'cross on all levels and then some, I am a roadie at heart. I started on pavement. I learned everything I know on pavement. The road culture infects all I do on and away from it. Without a road background, with its influences and biases, I couldn't make a bicycle. I certainly couldn't make one well. How others can go to the bench or hang out a sign, and have no experience, no deep and decades long relationship with the road - well it's beyond me. The road is my informer. My opinions, all four of them, weigh nothing without pavement.

    This is my first new road bicycle in about a decade. It's time. And overdue. And maybe a day's labor from completion. I've been called back. And once the paint dries I'll be ready.

    All This By Hand

    I agree with e-RICHIE. I make these carbon frames and perhaps I should give some background too.
    Decades of road racing, National Champion more than once, full time sponsored rider on a team in France, then worked in product development in the bike industry for several brands and manufacturers before distilling it all into what you see below.
