I picked up the frame at Rivendell in April of 2005 and finally finished building it and riding it September 2007. I have speced bikes for myself before, but this is the first bike I have speced and built up myself. I use it for local rides in the Santa Monica mountains typically half pavement half fire road. It is extremely comfortable, smooth and stable.
