i race on it.
carry fruit with it.
ride to visit grandma.
ride to keep fit and see new places.
made by craig calfee in california. hemp and epoxy form the joins.
its the best riding road bike ive owned. super plush yet stiff enough for racing and max climbing efficiency. double the weight of my last cannondale but way more character and more eco.
not the bike you want to ride if you want to keep to yourself..i have up to 50 conversations a day just on the bike! its insane. great way to meet people and spread the health and cycling message.
stats of my bike.
wheelset :36 hole velocity aerohead with off center rear rim. green chris king hubs.

tyres: racing, vittoria open corsa kx. training and touring : specialized armadillo all condition.

seat post: pro pilot cut down. as light as easton ec90 but a heck of a lot stiffer. and only 30$ vs 400$!!
