La Dolce Vita

Here's a look at our new Gran Paradiso model - La Dolce Vita - starting with bare tubes to coped tubes, then tacked frame, followed by the welded frame, then we'll have some pictures when it's back from paint. Finally we'll ask our photographer to shoot the whole bike, there may even be a video, and I'll ride the hell out it for the rest of this season. Life is sweet, indeed...

Starting with a clean slate...

The New Usual Suspects:
BB shell: 49mm for PF30
  Head tube: 40mm for D-11
Down tube: Life 38mm
 Seat and Top tubes: Life 31.8mm 
Chain stays: MAX 36 x 20mm &
Seat stays: Spirit 14mm
Weight: 3 pounds, 6 ounces

Yeah, that fits.

So does that.


 Max can weld, yes indeedy.
