I have seen this guy off and on at 'cross races for years. A few months ago he called me and ordered this-a steel road frame for riding the hills around Santa Cruz. Seeing as how he lives up in them the bike will come in handy. It is a mixture of True Temper OX and Columbus Nivacrome.
There's not much out of the ordinary on this bike except for a fairly steep seat tube angle. This was needed for a relatively short femur for a rider over 6'.
