May 21st, 2008 Hugh

This bike is another custom touring bicycle with the sturdy S&S machine works couplings. The bike comes apart so you can fly with it as regular luggage. The fork is also handmade, with a custom rake and lugged construction. The bicycle is built up with a Campagnolo Centaur/Comp Triple drivetrain and Chorus Ergopower shifters. The wheels are hand built 36 spoke wheels with DT Swiss spokes, DT Swiss TK 9.1 trekking rims and Campagnolo Centaur hubs.

May 16th, 2008 Hugh

This is the third in a string of beautiful custom road bikes this week. This bike is a custom titanium frame with shaped, butted tubes and a carbon fiber rear triangle. The front triangle is painted a rich candy orange. The True North logo on the downtube is masked in the paint, revealing the underlying titanium. The bike is build up with Campagnolo Chorus parts and Campy Eurus wheels.
