Sometimes the most random things walking into a bike shop for water bottles and walking out with a new helmet. Sounds possible right? What about walking into the shop for some tubes and walking out with a new custom bike on order? NO? Well it happened to this guy here Cory. I sold him his first Guru Crono in a previous life several years ago. He came into the shop not too long ago for some tubes and was asking about some other things and saw some bikes built and then he asked "thee question". How much for that one? Insert evil laugh here. haha He walked out almost upset and in disbelief at what he had just done. The next day...he even called laughing if that actually just happened. Over the next several weeks we picked the parts which went from using the old parts of off his old road bike to ALL new parts. First, the paint, we picked the Candy Red with Orion accents to match his Crono tri bike. Of course your bikes have to match right? We chose the new Rotor 3D cranks since he loves his Agilis cranks on his Crono. We did Sram Force front D, rear D, shifters and used a Rotor SABB ceramic and Enduro Ceramic pulley wheels. The Selle SMP Saddle is held up with a scandium seat post and the front end is handled by FSA for the bars and stem. This is one gorgeous bike and now Cory can train more and ride better in road groups at higher speeds to hopefully increase his bike splits in the triathlons. If nothing else...he is going to have one of the prettiest bikes on the training rides. haha He is a great friend and is going to have a great season!
