Aluminum road frame with a nod to tradition

 This rider has been on level top tube frames pretty much forever so when he ordered a frame from me he requested the same for this newest edition to his stable. The standard head tube and BB shell also don't veer from the pattern set many years ago , giving this frame a less bulky look than a lot of my current crop.
The wheelbase is a little longer than a standard racing frame  so it should be a bit steadier on bad roads and maybe a taste more compliant.
I really like what this customer requested and think that it is not purely nostalgic but a really functional and practical design.

Funny how a 'regular road bike' seems novel these days! I'll keep riding my similarly specced Serotta for...ever.
