Dylan's new bike

Dylan wanted a relatively light, fast and sensible road bike. Sensible in that it's got reliable and not overly expensive parts. Also sensible because the chain stay length, fork length and clearances allow for several tire widths. Currently the bike is built with 23mm Michelins and that's likely all that will live on it but if the owner wishes he has room for fatter tires. The paint is by Bad Boy Bobby Brown. Ever since Whitney gave him the boot, B4 has cleaned up his act and taken up bike painting. The white has a silver pearl and the red is a solid color. The paint scheme has been done so many times but it still looks fresh to me.

What I don't understand is why all race bikes _aren't_ this sensible. This is just plain smart and I bet it rides pretty okay too. ;-)
