    This is Taylor Bicycle's ultimate bike. Built in late Spring 2004, this
    frame is the latest in steel/carbon construction. Built from True
    Temper’s OC Platinum Steel and IRD's patented Pegasus Carbon Wishbone
    rear end, this compact bike is lightweight and rides, accelerates and
    descends better than any steel bike out there. It is a real treat to
    ride; better than most carbon bikes for sure. The blue, white and yellow
    racing paint was personally taped by Paul, and the rear end is a blue
    fade to carbon weave. Absolutely beautiful!! This bike was lightly (and
    I mean “lightly”) raced last season and has been meticulously cared for
    from day one. Never crashed, never ridden in the rain, this bike is in
    EXCELLENT condition.
