A great road bike is for all seasons but really shows its stuff when the going gets fast. Whether accelerating, descending, holding a line, or carving a turn, the bike is balanced and responsive, poised and predictable. I’ll design your bike to suit your preferred style and to meet the road head-on, whether you like to race, take long solo spins, ride weekends with friends, or train with the club. I prefer level top tube designs or nominal slope for fit with smart, straightforward choices to enhance the bike’s purpose, like maximum clearances for tires using short-reach brakes or braze-ons for a pump or chain-hanger. I’ll choose the lightest tubes appropriate for your size and weight so that the sum of design is greater than the parts. Options are kept to a minimum because a great road bike is all business and the fun of riding speaks for itself.
