    Overseas presentation

    Hi!

    I'm from Portugal and I've been reading your posts since some months ago, just after I get in love SS bikes.

    SS are rare here but the few of us who ride them, do it with passion.

    It's curious that you have exactly the same questions, doubts and discussions about SS that we have here The big (really big!) diference is that it is easy for you to find SS components. Here it is very difficult. Most of the components come from foreign online shops.

    Now I ride almost exclusively my SSs. I ride it in the same places where I used to ride my MS. I also participate in marathons with it.

    Anyway, presentation's done, i let you some pictures of my bikes:

    My first SS, based in a BH frame (paint donne by my friend Tico):


    The Marin:


    Me, last month, in Alvão mountains:

    Not exactly... they are the same now they are installed in the Marin, the yellow have some standard Avid Vs at the moment.
