Top Tube virtual  528mm  (though the actual horizontal tube is 333mm )


Angles Proprietary  But convergent to achieve a 635mm front center


Bottom Bracket height is 10mm lower than normal because of 165mm cranks

Kudos to Tom Kellog and Spectrum Cycles for his paint prowess.

Happy Easter & More Bikes

Ahh, spring racing in Belgium. Tough weather, tough climbs and tough dudes!

Here are two old pics (2001) of Peter thinking he’s one of those dudes; Roger Devlaemick.

First Pic is Peter riding the Patersberg climb:

Second Pic is one of the sections used in Paris Roubaix.  Peter doesn’t recall which sector but does remember that it was “bleak.”

Two more bikes came back from paint.  One of them is the XXS 29er.  Here’s a teaser pic till next week.
