Tony Pereira built this frame in late 2008/early 2009. Exquisite fillet brazing, with trademark sleeving on the seat tube. It's built around Paul Racer Brakes and fat tires. We likes to have a wee nip at the top of the hill, so the seatstays incorporate a flask. Yellow paint job, matching stem also made by Tony; sicko twin plate fork crown; quick but comfy road geometry. Tony is a regular guy who is also a gifted craftsman. Team Strawberry Pancakes on the Granfondo..

The particulars:
Drivetrain: White Industries 28/42 double crankset, high polish; 11-34 cassette Shimano Bar End 9 sp shifters
Wheels: my old Aksiums, til the new Velocity + King wheels are built up
