We survived a sand storm yesterday. A little bit like the sandstorm scene in madmax. Today the strong winds pushed all that stuff away and is sunny and beautiful.

yashcha pal, read about the sand storm in the news, glad you survived it. You must be the only one with possessions of the Zanc-s in the whole of China...I dare to wager.

Just barely survived it. In 2015 I was riding in the mountains when it hit. I had like 100 feet of visibility and we still had 40 miles to ride. Beyond epic.

This is China. I bet there is some rich guy who has like 7 zanks in his penthouse.

Before your report, a Zanc alu was alluring. After reading and photo-looking, the allure has gone to 11. Thanks (I think).

In the past twenty years I have owned about 60 different frames (used to work in a bike shop). This bike is easily the best I have ridden. My Ritchey Road Logic I had in 1998 is a close second, although most of that is just nostalgia.

This is on top of one of the tallest peaks in southern maine. I think it was only like a five minute climb, but steeeeep!

Gregg, the winter riding was better than I expected, the making of a strong man. There was very little traffic, it was cold, raining or snowing, and windy on every ride. My Zanconato aged 10 years in just one winter. I liked the Seven you sold me in 2013, but I was always wondering if the rear tire was flat.

When I was a kid, I thought Kittery was just the outlet malls. I had no idea it had a cool little downtown by the water with a nice ramen restaurant, and a killer coffee shop with amazing doughnuts.
