We picked the Guru Sidero, a fully custom steel frame which rides very well and is pretty cost effective. We built it up with Sram Rival using compact Rotor Agilis cranks, FSA bars, stem, and seatpost and the similar Adamo saddle that's on his Crono. Wheels....well again by the time it came in and he made it back down to pick up this gorgeous rig he ordered some HED Jet 6FR wheels that will be his race wheels on the Crono and use his Fulcrum training wheels on this rig.
Needless to say, after heading back home and getting out on some rides and climbs he is in love with his steel frame and the ride it gives. Who knows....maybe I will be able to convince him to show up to a road race or two. Otherwise I will see him at the Galveston 70.3 coming up...but on his good ol Crono...where I will try to plant into him ideas for bike #3. Just kidding....not really....hahaha

What did we build? Campy Record shifters, front and rear derailleurs. Zero Gravity GSL brakes, Reynolds wheels, Edge Seatpost to match the Edge front fork. New Ultimate stem with an FSA Compact Pro Wing bar and Fizik saddle.
How does this rolling work of art ride? His first pedal strokes behind the shop were those of awe. He could not believe what he felt and how well the bike finally felt underneath him. I love my job!
