The Presidential Wheels

Normally my bicycles are spotless for a photo op, even with the paint touched up. The Rev requested some shots and I think he will be undertanding.                  Behold, (drum roll ....... spoken quietly ...) "The Ghost of Elvis":

Tires: Reasonably sturdy, but not bullet-proof

The name for this steed should be "Velo One". Kvale needs to get with in the graphics dept thought. It needs a Presidential Seal.

Gunnar, does this have the appropriate radar and chaf to prevent tire punctures?

The new Kvale won't have the fade rings. I don't mind the rest. They are very much the builder.

Gunnar Berg said...

Tires. See last photo. No radar. Yet. I'm not certain they meet a presidential standard.

I'd prefer to see some sweat stains on the (immaculate!)white(!) bar tape, but that is one clean machine.

The fenders nicely disappear into the white lines.

The Campag front derailer is beautiful minimalism.

Gloves. And it's cowhide and the white doesn't seem to wear off easily. I'm still working on it.
