A Christmas Present to Myself

December 30, 2008


This is Papa’s new present- it’s a ~60 cm Guerciotti Italian frame with Columbus Genius steel tubing (of course) bought used at the swapmeet. Every single part was bought online (the majority on eBay) and built by yours truly except the wheels which were built by Trophy Bikes. All Dura-Ace. The bars, pedals and the brake are temporary because the new ones haven’t arrived in the mail yet.

I took it out for it’s maiden voyage on Christmas day, and so far, so good. She rides like a dream and fits well… the only problem is that it’s a bit larger than it’s predecessor, the old Giant, which fit like a comfy pair of pants.

Details and more pictures will come when it’s finished. Keep your pants on.



  1. Beauty…and bares bones. Well done….ride on. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  2. […] you see me on my new ride be sure to say […]
