Out of all of my bikes, I have owned this Daccordi the longest. This bike also started my love and collecting of Daccordi bicycles. A few years back I won a series called Tracklocross, it was a 4 part cross style race on track bikes on Randall's Island. The first place prize was a Continuum tack frame and fork. Jeff from Continuum had this frame in his shop when he first opened, I put a deposit down on the frame a month before the race. At the time I had 3 track bikes and did not need another, I went and talked with Jeff about the possibility of calling it even on this frame and fork instead of the track frame for my prize. He was all for it and knew how much I wanted this bike. Thanks again Jeff! I've messenger'ed delivered food and raced on this bike and love it. It will be in the permanent collection.

This bike took a while to build up correctly as they usually do. Thanks to everybody who gave me a good a deal on components for this bike. I built Mary up a matching bike but more on that later, stay tuned.
