So, how many Benzes don’t we give a fuck about?
Factors: Stiff-as-hell OS steel tubing, Spectrum Powderworks paint job, custom Fondo geometry, intelligent and functional build. Plus the fact that we helped create a new model…the Mosaic R-OS-1.
Mike’s Take: This is the kind of bike most people should ride instead of an off-the-rack carbon rig. Durability, comfort, style, value and performance? Check, check, check, check and check.
Ok, I’ll admit it, I have a crush on Kevin and Aaron from Mosaic Cycles. The award-winning bikes and beard, the phenomenal international press, insanely great reviews, the outstanding limited edition Mavic bike showing, and of course the general appreciation of the finer things in life that we want from our builders. So come down to ogle and test ride our Mosaic Di2 Hydraulic-disc gravel grinder today.
Oh, and to wet your appetite, stay tuned for a future Top-10 build featuring this unbelievable Mosaic RT-1…
