I stopped by Bothell Ski & Bike today and met the owners Greg and John. Greg’s ride – a Scott Addict with SRAM Red all grammed out with Zipp cranks, Zero Gravity brakes, and all the greatest roadie bike porn. A hot bike for sure, but I think he was almost more excited to show me his single speed Tommasini.
The single speed was given just as much attention to detail as his road ride. Phil Wood track hubs, Campagnolo Chorus Ti post, Deda Zero stem, White Industries freewheel, Nitto B125 Steel track bars – the works. It was the first bike I’ve lifted in a while that actually listed forward because of the heavy steel bars. The lugs, the vibrant paint. That bike is art. I didn’t get a chance to ride it so I may have to stop by again when I have more time.
