Bikes

Think of the world’s first hydraulic road bike as a fast touring bike, designed to be rugged and comfortable over the long rides I like to go on to travel to other cities. It consists of

  • a titanium frame with disc brake tabs I designed and made in China using what’s now called “Endurance Geometry” (think a tall 56cm or a short toptube 58cm),
  • a carbon fork made by Wound Up Composites and bought from the friendly folks at Aspire Velotech,
  • Specialized Trispokes purchased used from UsedEverywhere.com,
  • used hubs for using as chop stock for fabricating wheel rotor conversions from Ryan at Recyclistas and Jeremy and Fuji’s Bicycle-itis
  • Rubena antipuncture and reflective strip 25x700c training tires from Ryan at Recyclistas
  • various Dura-Ace 9-speed components, many of which found at Jeremy and Fuji’s Bicycle-itis shop,
  • a well designed carbon seat post with seperate adjustments for angle and position from the now defunct RaceFace company sold at MEC,
  • Fred Salmon 15 degree ahead stem (flip it over to get the flat retro look) from Ebay.com,
  • the most comfortable saddle in the world, the ISM Adamo 2012 Time Trial from Ebay seller Bike-smiths,
  • a Mosso Titanium flat handlebar from Ebay.com,
  • Origin 8 Propulsion road bar ends from Ebay.com,
  • SRAM carbon crankset and BB purchased from Trek Bikes Victoria aka Pro City Racing, and
  • 20 year old Diadora Power Drive magnesium and titanium pedals with carbon shoes, bought on Ebay.com in ’99, but alas no longer available.
