Ryan’s Cervelo R2.5 road racing bike. The Cervelo R2.5 got some poor reviews due to frame failure and Cervelo actually recalled some of the 2005 models (Cervelo R2.5 Recall), partly due to these reasons you don’t see many of them on the road. Ryan’s frame was not part of the recall, and has been ridden without incident up until this point at least. The frame looks good, the lugged carbon construction has a strange modern elegance to it. The build is quite nice, quality but somewhat modest. As pictured it weighs 15.25 lbs. It handles nicely and feels quick.

Sebastian’s Trek 500 road/townie commuter. Built around a 1985 Trek 500 road frame, full fenders, upright townie bars and low gearing make for the perfect classic commuter. The quality and utility of these vintage Trek frames is fantastic. Look for Sebastian and his Trek cruising around town and at Seattle Coffee Works.

Kris’s Soma Saga touring/adventure bike. With generous tire clearances, all the right braze-ons and predictable handling the Soma Saga made a great platform for Kris’s touring bike. He selected a fun mix of quality components, and with the steel Chris King headset and hammered Velo-Orange fenders the bike really turns head. A modern classic ready to ride to work or across the country.

Prestin’s Bridgestone 600 road bike. The idea behind this custom build for Prestin was a do-all road bike that could be a daily rider and have the potential for some light touring down the road. Using long reach brakes and 700c wheels the frame has clearance for larger tires (28-32s) and fenders making it a very versatile and useful bike. There is a lot of bike packed into this classic little Bridgestone. Look for it tearing up the streets of San Francisco.

I’ve been piecing together a M900 XTR group for a little while now. I’ve finally collected just about everything I need for a build minus the seat post and headset . Considering building it up on an older steel cyclocross frame with flat bars. Such a beautiful vintage MTB group.
