My new bike!! Almost two decades since the last.

A huge thank you to everyone who fielded my numerous questions during the past ~6 months. I haven't purchased a new bike in a very long time. Aside from the usual replacement items, my bikes have been quality builds that just would not die. Now that I am on the other side of sixty years old, it was time to replace the Campy Chorus 10-speed Serotta Legend with something new but equally special. I knew that I wanted more stack and less reach. Hydraulic disk brakes and clearance for larger tires was a must. As this could possibly be my last new bike purchase during my lifetime, I decided to go all out and placed a deposit for a Brad Bingham BUILT All-Road bike.

I am thrilled with the craftmanship. There is clearance for up to 45mm tires. I requested rear rack mounts and a pump peg. The components are Shimano Ultegra 12-speed. The 28 spoke wheels were made locally using BTLOS GX35A premium rims, White Industries CLD hubs and Rene Herse extralight 35mm tires.

Congrats!

It's always been the case that whenever I get a new bike or overhaul/upgrade a current one, some other circumstance has forced me to just sit on my hands for awhile before I can give it a spin.

Congrats!
After that long and if that is indeed going to be the last one then that's definitely how to do it.
More pics would be great.
Head tube badge.
Pump peg
Is that downtube logo sand/bead blasted?
The rack mounts
Signature dropouts?

Nice.

New bike day is definitely more special when it has been a long stretch since the last.

Let's get through this awful week and the weather in the northeast is looking much better for the weekend and next week.
