Lets Get Ready To Rumble!!!!!!!!!

In this corner, weighing in at more than your carbon dream machine, my new Ira Ryan.

coffee bag inspired colors.  or was it a potato?

it’s me


There are a couple more detail shots over at Ira’s flickr page.  I am very excited to see this machine and even more excited to ride it.  Much thanks to you Ira, for your hard work.  It has been a strange journey to get here, from that waterbed explosion that flooded our old basement apartment ten years ago to a custom bike hand delivered, I am looking forward to the next ten years of good times my friend.  Thank you!
