More Info:
Chainstay reads "TaĆ­no Ti": "May the good great spirit be with you". I wanted a track-ready but street-friendly frame with not too much toe overlap, which is almost a given with smaller frames. Dave came through and even added useful things like bottle bosses and internal brake cable routing because brakes and freewheels are also fun.

Lovely bicycle! It's a great mixture of full on commuter and can be geared for the velodrome or some muddy trails. At least it looks like you can put on some fat tires and ride a dirt trail. Either way, this is just a beautiful, American made bike.

Thank you! It's been a blast so far. Haven't tried wide tires, but the GP4000S are 23mm and coming awfully close to rubbing, so I might not be able to go much wider than 25. Def want to try though.
