Since he's gone of to be a Pro Bike racer, he always stayed in touch. He's sent us jerseys from every team he rode for, and even a white jersey from the TDF. He wore the polka dot for a day and his Dad and I were both hoping we might get our hands on it, but no luck.

At any rate, about 6-7 years ago I built him a titanium Strong. He wanted a bike that was his own. Something he could have just the way he wanted it, and something that he could keep for the long haul. Well unfortunately, last year his Strong, along with a lot of other stuff was stolen. He was pretty heart-broken. So we built him a Pursuit All Road. So far he loves it. I'm hoping to get a lot more intel from him as he gets more miles on it.

Here is a pic he recently sent me of himself and the bike along with a few more pics of the bike.
Such a good paint job!
