Why you ride it: I put this bike together for the vintage Eroica ride out in California, but now it’s my bike of choice on road rides. She handles smooth and steel is real!

Fun Facts: I actually started with the group on this build. We had a NOS 7400 group come through the shop a couple years ago and I bought it at the time knowing I wanted to build a bike around it. I’ve always thought 7400 was the best looking group of all time. Then I waited and the Giordana frame came through last fall. It was my size and I loved the lugs and color scheme.
