Super Turbo

You have gotta see this bike! Tiny Turbo the 650c wonderwoman. We built this before christmas and damn is it a beauty. This is the LAST EAI Super Turbo rim out there. For those of you as bummed as I am, have no fear, SIK Werks and I are scheming up a plan for Chrome Painted DT Swizzle...Keep you posted ;)

Sad to see them go, so I wanted to "do it right" and capture the glory. Here is my attempt...

Connecia's Bike Check:

IRO HD Heidi 650c Frame in Blood Red
Super Turbo ARROW 650c Rim in Chrome for the Rear
Velocity Black Deep V machined for the Front
IRO Hubs in Blood Red
Red DT Swiss Alloy Nips
laced with DT Swiss Revolution Black Spokes
Rubber: Hutchinson Team, Vittoria Rubino
Sugino 75 Crankset in Black w/47t 75 Chainring
w/Izumi Gold Chain Necklace
17t EAI 1/8" Cog Steel Black
MKS Sylvan Black Pedals
FSA Stem cradling Nitto EAI Collabo Dildo Bars
Stainless steel with rounded closed ends.
Oury Natural (Clear) Grips
Cane Creek Crosstop Lever (bars have "road" brake lever diameter)
Tektro R350 in Black
White Housing.

IRO HD Frame's fit folks under 5'4". As a 5'6" woman, I am so grateful to IRO for finally fitting it right. They took their 700c geometry and just resized it to fit the 650c wheel. Instead of redesigning what works, they have produced the best small frame on the market. I wish more companies would take note.

Who is going to be the King of the Core

Here it is...the carrot. I started the wheels last night and GAWD are they beeaauuutiful!
