Velosmith certainly isn't unfamiliar with the pages of Embrocation, but this one belongs to Tony, the guy fitting up some of the most beautifully understated bikes on the road. More amazing than just this custom build is that it's going on it's 3rd season of CX racing. Back from a refresh from Parlee and off of a dirty gravel ride, Tony let me nab his bike long enough for some quick pictures.
Lets first talk a bit about the frame: custom carbon with big tire clearance, made is the US to your specs. A wishbone mono-stay. Titanium dropouts. Before you ride it you have to admire the beauty.
Moving beyond the frame, we find an entire ENVE setup. ENVE 1-1/8" canti CX fork, bars, stem, and seatpost. That cockpit, by the way, was covered with a beautiful matte-black finish ridding it of logos for a much cleaner look. Add in some SES 3.4 wheels laced to Chris King R45 hubs and you have an incredible build.
This is one hell of a build coming out of one hell of a shop. If you're ever around the northern suburbs of Chicago, Velosmith is a can't miss stop. Velosmith is part museum, part art show, part fit studio, but full of knowledge for anything you need.
