My Bicycle and Motorcycle Builds







Old Pinarello Montello in background, Campagnolo Super Record, Columbus SLX, Cinelli, Mavic MA2. Great handling bike, king of the twisty descent.



Finished, on the snake, Mulholland. Took me three years to figure out how to stiffen the limp carbon steerer tube on the carbon fork, epoxied in an alumninum Ouzo Pro tube.

My friend JP made me a custom axle so I can run my CrossMax wheel on my Maverick forks.


Very happy with the results.

I was surprised when I read it as well, because I think I could taco that bike in one off-road session.

I would guess "Just Riding Around"

I really want to build a cyclocross bike. I might be giving up another expensive hobby soon (medical reasons) and if I do I am going to build one with the funds from selling off the other gear.

I had an old Ritchey cross bike that just needed to be updated. Done a couple of cross races so far and the Trek will debut next week.
