Yamaguchi Team EDS Super Aero Sprint NC

Found this frame in the very small town of Deming, New Mexico. It has quite an interesting story. It belonged to Olympic Medalist and former Head of Electronic Data Systems Global (Team EDS), Nick Chenowth. Nick was the guy who ran the cycling side of EDS but was later caught lining his own pockets with company money. The Frame was then sold by Nick's people at the Frisco, Texas Superdome to help pay for legal fees. The frame was then raced on the track until it found its way to Deming, New Mexico where i came across it. Besides for a some paint chips, the frame is in fantastic condition. From Koichi Yamaguchi: "The Team EDS bike is one of the Nick's frame. I made few frame for Nick's that frame for the Sprint event. Your pictured frame are built for Master's World Championships use. Frame tube is Yamaguchi Design True-Temper Aero tubing. Fin section is titanium-epoxy bonding. This is very expensive and very difficult to work with each EDS frame is custom fit mold to finish the fin section. (and all Yamaguchi frame is only one person (me) built/finish the each frames.This picture, you see how big Nick is. Coach, pushing Nick is USA & EDS Track Coach Skip Cutting. (former Olympian) He is 6' 2" "

This is the picture Koichi was referring too on the last part of the bio. It wasnt meant to picture the bike but the rider, Nick chenowith. As the head guy for team EDS, yamaguchi built him multiple bikes--including the one I own and the one pictured.
