I Roll My Own...

Well, sorta... My favorite thing is to buy a nice frameset for a good price and then build it up the way I like. It is a fascinating field of study, and really enriches the cycling experience for me when the bike I build actually rides as well or better than intended. This is the case with my latest, a 1985 Specialized Sequoia:

I started with a Quality frame and stayed with that theme throughout the build. No Campagnolo here, but the Shimano Deore - Sugino drivetrain works perfectly for light touring. The 650b conversion allowed me to run the larger tires I need to cope with my state's appalling lack of road maintenance. What do I pay taxes for again? At least the bike trails are pretty decent.


Rouler pour la joie, jamais pour la douleur.
