2003 - 2007.
The passing of this frame is pretty significant. This bike has seen close to 20,000 miles. It was with me on my first flight in a plane, did 4 24-hour races with me (including my first one), came with me for my first two attempts at the Great Divide Race, was one of two bikes to come to California with me, traveled to and from college, and was part of my first trip out of the United States.
There was no glory in cracking the frame. I was doing a hill-climb race in Pacific, a town south of San Francisco. I was locked out and hit a pot hole, and that was the end.
The weld below is completely gone...
