This is The Rooster. Wanted a solid working bike good for climbing the hills of Seattle. To my knowledge I'm one of the few people putting bullhorns on a geared bike. Shifters are mounted using a pair of Pauls Thumbies butted up against a pair of TT brake levers - the only other time I've seen this done is with this guy and his most beautiful Yamaguchi.

This is the first bike I built up from a bare frame - rides like a ball bearing on a steel table. Its totally sick to ride.

Weight 21lbs.
