Almost 2 years later, I was finally able to saddle up and take the new Ira Ryan road bike out on the road yesterday morning. Sailing. That’s the only way to describe it. The frame itself is made of deda zero and columbus life tubing to save weight, mated to an Enve fork. It was painted by Keith Anderson who is extremely talented (check his flickr here). I asked Ira to put my wife’s name, as well as our four-legged children (coco the dog and chloe the cat) on there. It was a long wait, process, some stress and a sizeable bite to the wallet, but I am completely satisfied with the outcome and yes, custom rides like no other. Here’s to ham sammiches and ramen lunches!
