DeSalvo’s one of the few booths I have no notes on, just pics. Enjoy. Above, a cyclocross bike with a bit of paint and opposing brushed sections. Closeup and more bikes after the break…

The grey road bike is a “builder special” he has had up on the site for a while it looks like. WSC aluminum cockpit and seat, full SRAM Force build, ROL wheels, steel frame, carbon stays, and Ouzo Pro fork for $3500.

Almost all of these NAHBS bikes shown are really cool….unfortunately for myself and my riding companions, I can’t think of anybody who could afford any of these bikes. I’m not poor by any means, and not trying to be an a-hole, just pointing out what seems to be the obvious. It’s right up there with the Rapha stuff….since when did cycling become a f-ing country club sport? Cheers.

Matt – It depends on what you’re comparing to. I mean, spending $25k on a car is considered pretty acceptable by most. Why is spending a few g’s on a bike such a bad thing? FWIW, Mike DeSalvo’s bikes are really fairly priced for the quality of his builds – no more than what you’d spend on many a carbon frame from Taiwan. And he’s a great guy!

The fenders really highlight the whitewall tires as well, yet another feature that makes it one of the flashiest and fun-looking cruisers around Affordable Cruiser Bicycle.
