Steve’s flat bar road

The conversation went something like this…..

Steve: So, I was wondering if we might be able to do the twin toptube/seatstays that you’ve done on the mountain bikes, but on a road bike?

Rob: Sure thing.

Steve: And I’d like the V3 style carbon ISP and headtube.

Rob: Absolutely.

Steve: I like to ride a flat bar on my road bikes – perhaps we could do a one-piece bar stem, and make it kind of curvy to match the frame?

Rob: I’m sure we can come up with something like that.

Steve: The rear brake will need to be under the chainstays and it’ll be Di2 with K-Edge flat bar shifters.

Rob: No problems there.

Steve: Then about the paint…..

 

Kudos to Eric and Bethany at Colorworks for the flawless execution of Steve’s paint design. And thanks to Tina Buescher for the great photography.
