Tim,

She is finally in on it. We also put the pink bow on the Zanconato men’s and women’s race jerseys this year. She loves the bike.

She is such an amazing mother, wife, friend and inspiration. I hired her when she was just 17 years old to work in my bike shop. It has been a thrill to watch her grow and even win a national championship 3 years ago.

Now she is fighting cancer with that very same spirit.

Completed build and maiden votage

Folks,

First ride today in the rain and wet in Northern Va. bike is simply amazing. Nice and stiff and light. The best of all worlds. Plus the feel of steel. F3 10.5 fork is supper stiff and feels more like steel than carbon. Geometry is spot on.

Was pretty wet, so didn’t go full gas on the downhills or turns.

The other gorgeous Zanc here is my son’s. He came up from Grad school at UVA for the weekend.

You are one lucky dude.
Sharing a ride with your son, let alone on two beautiful Campy Clad Zanks. Man what's better than that?

Enjoy in the best of health!

Now I want one.

Man... that HSS tube set is huge... lol. Makes the Max front triangle on my Zanc look so small in comparison. Congrats on yet another Zanc! BTW, you gonna have any extra Zanc swag this time around? I might need a new big and jersey.

Zanc&Jordan doing it right. Terrific build.

I would like to see an HSS tubeset in person someday to appreciate all the shaped oversized goodness.
