    new toy

    The magazine comes through once again:
    http://www.vandesselsports.com/gnt.php?bike=8

    I get one with Ultegra 10 for the first part of the season...just a little bit psyched.

    Gin and Trombones...that's awesome! If Lance Armstrong starts making bikes, do you think he'll call his something like "Horned Plastic Texan Longhorn Hats and Big 'Ol American Flags"?

    Bike looks sick, those guys seem to know CX. Enjoy the bike, and some gin too...

    I have the original country road. Personally, I think the older ones had more style, if you like the retro look.

    Wow, their builds are expensive. I would've thought their rebirth would've created more reasonable prices to get them back on their feet.

    Thats a purty bike but pricey.Must be for the racing end of the sport rather than for us cyclo-cross geezers and posers.

    Well to revive the thread-bike arrived last week and I finished assembling and fitting it yesterday. 20.3 lbs, not as stiff as last season's Seven but it soaks up bumps like nothing I've ever been on, I'll try to find someone with a digital to put a pic up later.
