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

Aluminum frame Carbon Fork; whole build is at 16.2lbs as it sits for you WW out there.

that is a great race bike for a privateer.

It's not Hot by the thread's standards, but an "all business" race bike.

I like it a lot.

Slammed the stem and put on new bars since last post. Still trying to figure out a way to get a second bottle cage on the frame.

Why - what's the idea?

The peculiar chainstay arrangement got me to thinking, though: when I rode motorcycles, all the cool guys had single sided swingarms on their sport bikes. How about a bicycle with single sided hubs?


You needn't squint or zoom; yes, English.

Easily replaceable belt drive without a split in the rear triangle, I'd wager.

it's a way of using a belt drive, without the need to have an interupted seat/chainstay.

Next time I'm at his shop I'll show some of the tube junctions in more detail. It really is beautiful up close.

the seat bag and stack of spacers detract from the hotness, but that's a nice ride.

Warm.

Thanks! It went through various changes including new crankset, derailleurs, handlebars, stem and above all thorough cleaning and polishing of the paintwork.

they work better and are simpler. you could make the same arguments for the rear, but being able to switch the rear from the bars is a huge advantage.

Very very pretty. I once read that in the early days Lance did the DT front shifter thing to save weight.

A lot of riders did it before Armstrong, including Pantani and Ullrich but most notably Zulle and Jalabert with team ONCE...
