Hey Cycling Bothers and Sisters..
Another quick entry, which deserves way more time than I can currently dedicate. Time-warping way back to last December I had the privilege to participate in a titanium shootout for Bicycling Magazine. I was asked to supply as custom titanium frame for the guns of the Editor-at-Large and accomplished author, Bill Strickland (a.k.a. TrueBS) . The only constraint was the request to build the bike up with the latest Campagnolo EPS Groupset, wired internally.
As you can see, Bill and I were able to synergize our collaborative efforts as cyclist/builder came together. Bill, being the conversationalist that he is, was able to simply define what he likes, dislikes and where he was hoping to go with the build. All I had to do was take some notes and get started.
A special thanks to Dino Cento and the folks at the technicial office at Campagnolo, Italy, for taking the time to get me all the latest specs and special parts that I needed to get Bill’s bike built-up to the quality that Campy is known for. I guess you could say the project was a success as I was included in the Dream Bikes section of the guide. I owe a debt of gratitude to Bill and Bicycling Magazine for considering my work and for giving space to the small, custom builder. Thanks so much!!
