Etap travel bike for Colorado

 The customer spared little expense coming up with this package. It is a big tire breakaway/S&S  travel bike with the new Sram Etap wireless shifting. I had issues setting it up with the Sram video but checked out another one from the official German Sram tech guy. His demo was different and clearer -once I followed the procedure I got the shifting working in just a few minutes . I was not able to road test the bike as the rain was coming down in buckets today.

The customer also came up with the whole paint scheme-one of the best from Allan Neymark-the local painter I use for all the clear coats and special work. The execution of the job is first rate.

The bike will take much larger tires but was spec'd with these Continental 700x28 road tires. The Paragon Poly-Drops allow a number of configurations, even belt drive.
 The Jen Green copper mix sterling headbadge adds a nice classic look that goes well with the Brooks  saddle.
