Spring Break!

Hey Gang, another bike today.
Today you're looking at a bike that
was made for Paul Price.

Paul asked for what he was calling an "XC CX."
We settled on a bike that had room for fat cross tires
(45c's in these pics), a 1x10 speed drive train,
drop bars, and slightly slacker geometry
than a traditional cyclocross bike.

As I was taking these pictures, this month's
storm of the century moved in.
Sorry for the droplets.

The music this time 'round is
Iron and Wine. The songs are from
The Shepard's Dog record.
Lovesong of the Buzzard
Pagan Angel and a Borrowed Car
Boy with a Coin

Oh yea, part two.
The theme of our road trip started as
"Let Go 2010" but we decided that
sounded totally last year, so we shortened
it up a bit to "Let Go."

Three rides, three days in a row and from the first few moments on the first ride I knew this was just what I was looking for. Incredibly stable, perfect handling, perfect position.

The pudding proved it Todd-nice job. Then there are all the details-stars on the water bottle bosses, headtube machined just so, beautful smooth welds, and the the stays are a work of art all in themselves.

New hub should be out for Interbike.

THANKS TODD!!!!!!!!!!!!

What brand are the bars on this bike. Sweet dirt rambler!

blackcatbicycles said...

thanks for the good words.
the check is in the mail!!

the bars are woodchippers.
seem to be named after what they'd do to trees growing too close together!

Are those Paul Components cranks and circles chainring? I thought you could only run a 1/8" chain with those. If you can run a geared chain with those I'll be a happy man.
