Dain from Giro was the key player in the Easton Dream Bike give-aways and now, he’s put together one of his own. Being good friends with Todd from Black Cat and a resident of sunny Santa Cruz, he knew where to go with his idea: a carbon and steel constructed road bike.
See more below!
This frame has a Enve top tube and seat tube with Black Cat lugs and seat mast topper.
The stem/fork/handlebars/wheels are Easton with a Shimano Dura Ace group. The build is topped with a Chris King headset, Praxis BB and King cages.
Because people who ride bikes like old sports cars, the paint was in spired by a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB that Dain saw down the street from the Giro offices at the Canepa Design car museum.
Dain had the following to say about his unique frame:
“I gave Todd my basic measurements and told him that I wanted a bike that was a downhill demon and wicked stable. I said that I wanted to be able to eat a pastrami sandwich (with two hands) on a fast descent… I haven’t found that big, messy sandwich yet, but regular ham and cheese sandwiches haven’t been a problem!”
I hope you find that sandwich one day Dain, until then, enjoy the ride.
Oh and nice sticker!
