Goodrich Road Bicycle

I was not in the market for another bike, but have had Goodrich on the short list of drool worthy builders. When this bike was offered up, I had to pull the trigger.

Rode it 35 miles for the shakedown and I feel like we have been together for years. This bike is a keeper keeper. So good it may push the Zank back on the block?
Time will tell

Great looking bike, love the color and build. I imagine it must ride very solidly.

Oooh that blue is so nice! I love that we are the same size. Would love dibs on this if it ever gets pushed out of the way. Nice build too. So few bikes look great with white tape and this be one.

Congrats on a really cool bike!

Your example looks fantastic. I know it rides as well as any steel frameset out there. Curt's attention to detail on his framesets is well known and you were wise to snap this up.

Curt's frames are killer. I've got one that as you say is a "keeper keeper". You scored big time!

10 out of 10, it's hard to beat the aesthetics of custom steel with 10sp Record

I had never used one before and have ridden 5 rides with it. i don't have strava or a smart phone yet, but those are next. I love having the computer. It helps me keep my cadence up when i should be, and is helping me learn to hold my speeds better for group riding if i decide to go that route this year. Im also learning the pitch of every hill in town! but i can't compare it to other computers.

it works well, easy to read, switches between fields well, and runs my trainer easily. i can't complain.

I have lusted after this exact bike many times.
For me everything is spot on... and it's my size.

Enjoy the heck out of that.
