Commissioned this for the 2008 Portland NAHBS. Was a blast working out the details with Richard Schwinn and Marc Mueller. Flew in from San Fran with a suitcase of parts and assembled the bike in Oregon 2 days before the show. Fork didn't arrive til 1 day before the show (it was still being polished). Eventually talked Richard into getting me a 3 day pass and got to work the Waterford booth that weekend.

Nitto 184's and Sakae ring

Where do you get this type of "exotic" stuff? Is that the 30mm raked Waterford fork? This bike is classic/gorgeous!

I've got a stack of the SR rings in my tranche. The 184 bar I purchased through our distributor, Merry Sales.

The fork rake is 43mm. This bike is meant for distance, hence the road geometry on the front end, 2 bottle cage bosses and the front and rear brakes.

I just took it on my first fixed gear century on Tuesday. Rode 105 miles from Oakland to Davis. Fun ride.

They used to offer this as an option up until 3 or 4 years ago. I ended using 320 grit wet sand paper, 600 grit wet sand paper, 0000 steel wool and a finished it off with a jewelers cloth. Kind of a pain in the butt but it was worth it.
