Josh is an animal!!! I met him last year, he is a super nice guy. When he sprinted it was like a rocket took off.

Thanks, the downtube is almost teardrop shape, except it has a strange bottom edge.

Is Josh Weir the American Flag guy?

That bike looks amazing. If I wasn't desperately poor, and if I actually stood to gain anything from a $2000 frame, that's exactly what I'd want, right down to the Wound-Up fork.

2) re: the picture. maybe I am just anal, but why not leave enough unpainted area so the track nuts don't mess it up?

Howdy,
Sprinters like smaller bikes for stiffness. up stems put them in their proper position.
Ask the painter on the 2nd issue...

I think it's two American-flag trispokes and a red, white and blue Cannondale track bike. It's really something else.
