Hi Jim

I ordered the Coho from Charles Lathe after reading about the bike in Bicycle Quarterly and seeing one in person. This is a custom frame using standard diameter tubing, with old touches to modern dimensions. It sports Henry James lugs and dropouts, braze on fittings for Mafac centerpull brakes, a custom front rack and a very nice powder coat finish. The bike is for anything you want to do. It is currently serving as a commuter during the week and weekend jaunts in the greater San Francisco Bay area.

Build as follows:
XTR M-900 rear hub, Shimano generator front hub laced to DT Swiss 1.1 rims
Lighting by Bruce Gordon and Inoled
Grand Bois 700x30 tires
TA Zephyr 130/74 bcd crank
Dura Ace rear derailleur, Campy front derailleur, Silver shift levers
Chris King headset
Nitto bars and stem
Velo Orange fenders, pedals and bottom bracket
