What Blanco Suave Rides (slowly)

Here's the bikes I likes.
This is the new baby. I wanted Mike to make me a steel cross frame and fork based around the Paul Components Racer brake. I like how low pro they are. This bike will see limited use as the pit bike during cross season, but mostly it will be for gravel road rides and commuting. It rides a bit more softly than my race rig, which is what what I wanted. I already love this bike. It is going to get way too much saddle time.





This is the race rig. Ti, light and sexy. It's stiff and tough and with the single ring, all about business. It tops out at just over 18lbs., which for my fat ass, is plenty light. I don't know about the carbon hoops, but they look cool. The Dugasts that are on there are the bees knees, though. I have a set of Kings laced Mavic ceramic Reflexes that I can run should the need arise, like at PIR this December.

Nice!!!!!!! I have two DeSalvos too, and have just started to build them back up again.

Back in 2002 I helped design the DeSalvo Classic Cursive Script to use for my cross bike, and I am glad people are still using it!

Come check out my Desalvos...

Strangely enough, I have cursive logos on one bike, and Mikes original font on the other.

Great looking bikes, and great blog!
