The Superbowl bike, built in Seattle by Rodriguez.

"Every year before the superbowl, the mayors of each teams city place a friendly bet, to benefit local businesses and charities. This year, if Denver loses, Denver will send Seattle a sampling of green chilies, a hoodie, locally made cap and skis, and will auction off a Denver-themed item to support the Seattle based Lifelong AIDS Alliance. If Seattle loses, the mayor will send over Hancock salmon, Dungeness crab, a custom bicycle, and a blown glass piece blown by Dale Chihuly to benefit Denver’s Road Home program for the homeless".
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

Sounds like Seattle is getting the short end of that bet!

R&E Vs Moots (though the latter is not in Denver)

love the Blue/green team color being carried over to the Bar tape striping ..

maybe a Mudguard replacement of Bong Bowl Champion will be thrown in after the game.

Does it talk smack to you if your buddy beats you in the sprint to the town sign?

Agree, Seattle is getting short changed.

On the bike, I read this...
If y’all think this pike is pretty sweet you should check out the sub 14 lb. steel frame road bike
or sub 27 lb steel frame & fork tandem on our website.

A 14lb steel bike would be sweet!!
