It’s been a long, long time since I first posted about Ben’s Columbus MS road frame. Last June, in fact. Chris and Ben both tracked down all the parts needed to build this beauty up and I gotta say, it’s one of the best road bikes I’ve seen come from Bishop. Which is saying a lot, considering my own and Michael‘s are still two stellar beauts.

Catch more of this insane road bike (if you can indeed catch it) at the Bishop Flickr!

    The original MS Track bike from Austin NAHBS is really what originally drew me to Bishop’s work. It’s great to see Chris do the road version; they compliment each other beautifully. I’ll always have a soft spot for this pair, no matter how much I love mine.

      I love how Bishop has been doing these “retro modern” road builds – with yours, Michael, as well as with this one. Contemporary parts amidst a backdrop of traditional lines, 1″ steerers, quills, and of-era saddles to top them off. Some fantastic looking bikes!

    Amazing work from all concerned. Very very tasteful indeed.

    I love what Bishop does with bikes and the paint always brings the work to life. I really admire all of the builders that are featured here, and have a lot of respect for them all but, Bishop’s work I find to be the most inspiring.
