BG builds some of the nicest bikes around IMHO. Some of his past show bikes are just unreal (and VERY expensive).

That is as nice as I've seen...especially love the fork crown.

Bruce is usually consistent on how he joins the fork tips and dropouts to the blades/stays. The cross bike is different from his usual method (see picture). I wonder if that has something to do with the strength of the joint needed for cross racing.
