A few months back we played around with a new team paint scheme for our dedicated cadre of Grassroots Racers.  Norcal crazy man Ron Shevock was kind enough to let his ti Deluxe be the test mule, and here are some pics of an increasingly rare 26″ steel Deluxe with the team green and yellow treatment.

What I like the most about the stripe placement is that you don’t see the green and yellow unless you are behind the bike, where most of Ron’s competitors find themselves.

I said that this one was rare because we are only making a handful of 26″ frames these days, it’s all gone 29er.  Lest we lament the demise of the 26″ wheeled MTB, raise a glass to this one, and to all of our Grassroots Racers out there flying the green and yellow flag.
