its a pleasure to have your knowledge here on V and this smoked out is off to a blazing start.
ive had the pleasure of putting a bunch of miles on one of your bikes and its completely different than others i've had in the same material. whatever you're doing is working. your bikes fucking rule.
"“Writers are really people who write books not because they are poor, but because they are dissatisfied with the books which they could buy but do not like. “
Edit: And then I wrote a beautifully crafted reason why I don't agree with you but after a few minutes I realized why you say writers are dissatisfied with what they could read. The writers I know are, first, readers. They write because they have something to say, a new idea or an old one in their own way.

best of all -- a friend & a skilled craftsman of tonque and quill - with a major in Metal ..
my question: what is your most difficult hurdle/s in creating a frame/fork -- like to know what the other side of the "milky way" is like, know ya been there ..
Jason and tj- thanks for the props. to answer your questions about what's next, the most exciting thing coming is the new cross frame. it's based on the corsa but with a few tweaks. look for it to be formally introduced at the providence cross festival. it'll drive good.
overall I'm really happy with the line-up as it stands. there will probably be a running change to a new drop-out design and the future corsas are going to press-fit 30 instead of bb30.
How many frames have been produced thus far? Why did you only do a 60mm extension on the issimo? What bike wheelies the best?
When I bought the Pegoretti a month ago the only other frame on the short list at that point was an issimo. I truly mean it as a compliment that I hold the thought of your frame designs on the same level as Darios and haven't ever seen one in person.
dario is an inspiration and a friend and having my bikes and his sharing the same paragraph is a little crazy to me, but appreciated!. the seat tube extension on the issimo isn't an isp- it's there to support the seatpost and make sure that there is not too much exposed seatpost especially in the larger sizes. i think it adds to the solid feel of thew bike when cornering hard in the saddle.
the bike that wheelies the best is corsa. all the other bikes are designed to wheelie the same though.
