DeRosa: “No secrets”

This is a video of $4k worth of bike being pieced together. A few thoughts:

  • The assembly room doesn’t seem like a particularly clean environment, and cleanliness counts when you’re gluing carbon fiber bits together.
  • I doubt that’s epoxy they’re using, or else….
  • …the dude sanding the green (newly cured) adhesive can look forward to a brief life.

The narrator notes that Mizuno makes the tubes to their specs. Mizuno is a heavyweight in carbon fiber fabrication, so I (optimistically) suspect these are first-rate tubes they’re using.
