    Meet the Dean

    Keep your carbon, I'll take titanium



    I finished assembly of my Dean El Diente Utra Light on Friday and took it out for its maiden voyage today...40 miles. Smooth and quick, it the first fast road bike I've had for 5 years or more.





    The Brooks Pro Alpe d'Huez is wonderfully comfortable and worth the slight weight penalty.

    I do believe that's a Performance carbon fork I see, and are those eBay carbon cages??.. you know you want more carbon!....... got both on my steel bike.

    Kidding aside, that's a beauty.

    Nice bike.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Try finding a pretty titanium fork Even Dean's road fork is butt ugly



    After what I've put into the bike, I have to hold off on the King titanium waterbottle cages (another fine Colorado product) or I'll be sleeping in the dog house...and we don't have a dog
