Catching up with Bill

By Bill ....

The bike was custom built to my specifications by Incycle in
San Dimas. Starting with a Litespeed Xicon frame and fork,
Incycle added:

Williams 30 wheels with Specialized 700x25c Armadillo tires,
Shimano Utegra carbon shift levers,
Shimano Ultegra front & rear caliper brakes
Shimano 105 triple (50-39-30) crankset and front derailleur,
Shimano Deore XT 10 speed (11-34) cassette and rear derailleur,
Thomson Masterpiece seatpost and Selle Lite 209 saddle
Ritchey Log Curve handlebars with Salsa bar-top brake levers
and miscellaneous other pieces such a stem, chain, bar tape, etc.

The completed bike looks good and rides well. I really like the
fact that it weighs about 6 pounds less than the Trek Pilot I have
been riding up GMR on for most of this summer. Kudos to the
guys at Incycle!
