Building a NorCal League race bike...

My buddy Gary and his son Henri came up last weekend to build Henri's new high school NorCal League race bike. Our mutual friend Joel Smith at Tomac Bikes supplied the Tomac Cortez frame. The great guys at WTB supplied wheels, tires, and seat. My friend Matt V, GM of FSA, was kind enough to find the Afterburner 386 double crankset that was out of stock at all distributors. With all the parts in hand, we set about to building the bike last Saturday.

Gary took a bunch of photos, but here are some highlights.

(and forgot to mention the awesome burritos Gary provided at lunch-time from the Whale of a Deli in Point Reyes Station - carnitas con todo, caliente, not mild - thanks again Gary B!)

Good looking bike he's got there. Best of luck to him on the upcoming season.

Is that another 'Ham on the wall? ;)

Good eyes Ben!
