The Bikes.

These new bikes are friggin' killer. Here's the first one, built up.



I'll build up the other one in a few weeks. I've put a few days in on this bike and it's really, really good. I love how it fits and it's a good blend of quick and stable. It's super solid to sprint on. With race wheels and Dugast tubulars this thing is going to slash throats.

You got a DJ setup? Sheeeeeeeeit, man. You'll have to bring it to the races so we can set it up at the tent and do some pathetic white-man-can't-scratch-for-shit demos. This could really be a monumental event at the local races. Cheers, swiggboss. Hey, I told you this batch was better than the last.

I like that setup for your brake cable hanger stopper. I have seen Mario Declercq and Jon Page using that strategy in the past. Do you have any side views? Curious about the vertical cable pull angle. Also, does the thickness of the hanger fit ok between the two faces of the stem? I realize that it would be similar to using a washer in there. Have any close up pics from the side showing the gaps in your stem plate top and bottom?

It seems like it would enable a rider to get their stem lower to the top of the head tube, and get rid of any spacers if that was an issue for them.

Very cool new bike. Nice color update. Good luck this season.

I just used a hanger that usually goes off the seat binder bolt for my front brake cable routing. It just barely fits on this stem, it's better on the 2-bolt Easton stems that I'll be using.

Jandy, you can't ride either of my bikes. But you should get a cross bike. Your ability to suffer would serve you well during cross season!
