My Steelman is finally here!!!!!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My Steelman is finally here!!!!!

REAL nice. Excellent workmanship from the pictures. Very well proportioned and, with just a slight bit of drop from saddle to bars, I would say the geometry and size is dialed in perfect. Just the way it outta be.

And the wheels, they complete the picture very nicely. The icing on the cake.

Sweet. I contemplated a Steelman for quite a while, but decided against it. However, I did get a Steelman stem

Congrats. Enjoy.

Nice bike. How many forums have you posted that on

(saw it on the vortex...)

I'll bet you'll be showing it off at the next club ride

Ha! Nah, just here and the 'Tex.

I'm telling everyone who will listen about it! AS far as rides? The metal flake seems to cause people to ask me abou tit before I can tell them!
