De Salvo has a workshop in Ashland, Oregon. A custom bike maker sponsored by Mike Desalvo, a leading TIG welding master on the west coast of the United States, a cyclist who absolutely trusts his welding technology, as evidenced by his numerous NAHBS (North America Handmade Bike Show) awards. Too many, with a lot of support from local and Portland hardcore bikers.
In addition, he is a TIG welding instructor at UBI (United Bicycle Institute) and is also in charge of classes, so he is eager to train his successor. Furthermore, it is a well-known fact in this area that we often undertake OEM of other custom manufacturers, and it can be said that it is a proof of trust.
The stock frame that came after a long time from such Desalbo isIt is a gravel bike using titanium, which is his specialty, which was also planned to be exhibited as a show bike of NAHBS in 2018.
An oversized tube with a 142x12mm thru axle on the rear end and a standard frame that gives you absolute peace of mind in modern gravel riding.
The BB shell is Mike's own favorite, adopting the most basic standard normal thread, equipped with a 12mm through axle specification ENVE CX DISC fork (post mount) as standard equipment, and the rear brake pedestal has become an international standard standard. I am. The shifter arable guide is provided on both the front and rear, and of course it also supports front double assembly.
The sexy bend seat stay not only looks good, but also suppresses pushing up on the dirt, and the frame swallows up to 700x40c and has clearance, so it is one that can be enjoyed widely from on-road to dirt ride.
