    I am very very jealous. Now I hope no Jackass goes and says it is not vintage.

    I know! I hope they post their bikes. No emoticon for an impatient person waiting, apparently.

    Fresh build on Steve's blog. I sent an email as soon as I saw it but apparently you have to know someone to get 1 of the 4 built. I haven't been this excited about a bike in a very long time.

    Did charlie whip up some new parts for it or did you have to source everything. I would love to see all 4 on display and some better pics. It really is a great looking bike.

    No, not mine. Unfortunately. I would love one. But the guys that got them are super stoked and will ride them so I'm very happy for them. They will not be garage queens, yay! There was so much work involved so I hope they come out and tell their stories.

    In that case, it needs disc tabs welded on and conversion to single speed.

    DIA may stand for "Do It All."

    There's a pic on the BMC Tumblr feed too. It shows the bike a bit better.
    What's In The Stand ? Cunningham/Potts DIA.*
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Well, it is a ControlTech, so DIA (do it all) is spot on correct.

    IV is essentially the road/CX/Expedition (i.e., scaled down) version of the I. Both are crowned forks with curved, oval blades. T-III was a unicrown design.
