Gran Fondo in Chattanooga

The Hincapie Gran Fondo in Chattanooga was a great first race on the disc frameset. I received many comments on the build and received a bunch of good advice and encouragement from other framebuilders and companies who were at the event (thanks Lightweight Carbon and Slica!) To most people I talked to after the race, wood just seems like a novelty. Clearly, they stand out from every other bike. But that's not the point of these frames. They perform in a different way: by riding smoothly while remaining surprisingly light and stiff.
