This frame and fork will be built into a complete bike for a friend of mine. The frame is a result of a collaboration between myself and Bruce Gordon. Our combined years of building is somewhere around 70-plus years so this collaboration is unique in that respect. The frame will take up to a 700x43 tire-Bruce designed and sells this particular tire called "Rock 'n road", an all conditions high quality tread .
These will be sold as complete bikes in four incarnations: # 1, Shimano 105 STIor SLX (with bar-con shifters ) for around $ 3,000 . # 2, Shimano Ultegra STI or XT ( with bar-con shifters) for around $ 3,600. The idea is an American made bike for a great price with solid equipment made by two guys who have a lot of experience. Also, there's a chance that it might get to be a kosher bike so you'll be able to ride it on the sabbath.....if that is allowed.
Oh, yeah......did I tell you it will have disc brakes ?
