Gil has been a Steelman rider since 1997.
His wonderful wife Cheryl thought he deserved an updated version
and arranged to have this beauty built. Gil does several single
and double centuries every year, so likes a comfortable ride,
but he also values core stiffness for positive climbing and descending.
The color is absolutely amazing and is created using special
pearlescent over a black base. I think this bike defines straightforward
grace in road bike design. Thanks so much Cheryl and Gil!
