My New Bike, Part 5: Some Beauty Shots

Friday, April 18, 2014

I took the time today to get some nice shots of the bike in the sun.

May I present Geysir:

I love the color!

Road brake levers, but no shifters here.

A front view of the handlebar. You can see the stem plate matching the frame color, and the auxiliary bar with the shifter and light mounted under the handlebar.

The cockpit. You can see the shifter on the right side of the auxiliary bar and a mirror installed on the end of the left handlebar.

A side view of the steerer tube. You can see the auxiliary bar, the stem, and the spacers. I've got room to move things around if my riding position changes.

Cabling running around the rack mount. Brake cable is on top, shifter cables are on the bottom.

The saddle, with a emergency maintenance kit and the spare headlight in a bag underneath

The 53-tooth chainring mounted to the Alfine crank

The front brake calipers

The rear brake calipers

The rear wheel, showing cable routing to the brakes and hub, as well as the fender and rack mounts.

    Dear Bill,

    When I saw that you had beat me to the punch, and posted Part 4 and 5 of your finished bike, I actually yelled "AAAHHHHH"!

    Then I looked at the completed bike. I can see that no corners were cut. Every part you selected, is perfection, including the Chris King headset, the Shimano Alfine components, the Rohloff SpeedHub and the Fizik Arione Tri 2 Saddle.

    The glowing neon powered powder coat just shouts "quality". However, I can see you optimized every selection that you made. We are peas in a pod. There was no question in our minds that we were going to study engineering.

    I have a gift. You have a gift. I developed closed form solutions to engineering problems that, before I put my mind to it, where considered to be solvable only by iterative methods. And I developed these optimization solutions as an undergrad.

    I consider an iterative solution to be an insult to human creativity.

    Your bike is worth every penny, and worth every minute, you invested You da man!

    Thanks, Bruce
