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

I just picked this beauty up. Haven't even ridden it yet. It's the "Rodriguez Rainier" with Sram Force. Built in Seattle, just for me.

They're Planet Bike fenders. Not sure exactly what model.

It's 35 degrees right now. Chance of snow. But I'm dying to get out and ride.

Bruce, Yo and Fixed is easier than say'n Bruce Gordon custom, Team Yo Eddy, and a Paramount Fixed gear conversion.

2006 Scapin EOS-7 (I think) bought it used and there isn't a lot of info around on them in english... Fantastic riding bike though plenty stiff enough for me at 215lbs and im still smiling after 5-6 hours in the saddle.

That looks awesome. Do you notice any flex in the fork, by chance?

Very classy build, but why go with a quill to threadless adapter? You can get Salsa Short 'n Shallows in a 26.0 and a beautiful Nitto Dynamic stem that would make the setup absolute tits.

I always wanted a Celeste Bianchi. Apparently the Italian steel bike I have was manufactured by Bianchi and the local racer/shop owner (Italo Zilioli) would put his own stickers on. It's a beautiful bike on its own. (pics posted much earlier in this thread).

I know this is the steel thread and I have already posted a couple of pics of mt steel bikes but just for the sake of your interest in Scapin I am posting my recent build on a Scapin carbon frame. It is one sweet bike. Just finished an 80 mile ride on it this past weekend.
