I can't wait to see your Dinucci project. I was talking with Mark a couple months ago and really enjoyed the conversations. His small touches like the lug shapes, drop-out aesthetics, and frame angles just really look beautiful to my eye. Unfortunately, his bike concept that is built around the custom tubesets has too much overlap with the MRB and doesn't quite fit into a justifiable +1 on my end. I am very eager to see yours come to life and hear ride reports.

Apologies for the drift - continue ogling this beautiful Sachs.
Yeah, I need to follow up with him on that. I'm not looking for an allroad or MRB style - would just want straight road-bike performance for riding on the road. DiNucci is only about 10-15mi from me as the crow flies though, so I was thinking now would be a good time to see what was possible there, and I figured post-Covid I could finally make that trip to Bozeman for some in-person fit dialing with Dave. Hard to plan things for the future these days though.

Exactly. Especially on a pre-holiday Saturday afternoon...

Book it up. Early fall next year would be about perfect.

This color combination works really well with modern black components.
Hopefully soon I can have them both road ready and do some back to back rides.

Thanks. I guess this is my fourth light-blue bike. I didn't realize how much I like the color...guess I do.. Though I'd have bought it regardless.

Dan, great build. Looks the business and nothing but the business. No extra fads or trendy features here, because none are needed. It is timeless and iconic, and like your old Ellis, or your old Kirk, in five or ten years this will still be a classic and will retain its value.

The -17* compensates to an extent - but yeah, not a great fit.

Having the option to visit, plan, and finalize the build makes that an easy decision. Your plans make for one well-cultivated stable.

Cheers to getting caught up in a nice ride and coming home late, and bonked. Once upon a time my wife thought I might get smarter as I got older ...

I love the look of your build. My left knee wouldn't like 39/25.

Because the client wasn’t ready when his slot first came up.

Ha ha, mine saw the 100-yd stare and bloodshot eyes (had to ride the last hour or so with no glasses, too dark..) and took pity on me. The only scolding I got was "why didn't you call me to come pick you up?" Duly noted.

There are certainly plenty of rides in the PNW where the 39/25 would be a no-go, but for the vast majority on this side of the mountains, it works. I do have a 12/29 cassette that can go on if/when needed. Or the R12 group I think I did 11/32 and 36/52 - call that travel gears for the mountain west.

Nice! I just bought two Shoji Hamada pots in a two week period which was completely excessive.

Very cool! And on brand... username checks out, etc.

PM me pics when they arrive. I'm trending back into tea nerdery, so I may need to increase the ceramics in my life - though I kind of already went nuts on handmade mugs and cups this year, so we'll see. Mary Carrol. Vitrified studios. Wolf. Cultivare Goods.

Sweet, I make lots of tea cups (yunomi) and sell Japanese cups by famous potters too. Handmade is the way to go!

Perhaps the Nitto UI-12 in the meantime? Or an Innicycle conversion headset, if you want to go that route.
