Mat Barlow has been in and around the bike industry since he was in diapers and is now partner in our Boulder, Colorado dealer, VECCHIO’S BICICLETTERIA.

Way back in the early part of 2016 our friends at Chris King approached us to be one of just a handful of builders to build a bike in celebration of their 40th Anniversary. Our time slot would be November, so we thought of doing a Cyclocross build…..
