BOTW - Jorge's Colorado-Bound Latigo RS1
By: Franco Bicycles | July, 03, 2018
When in Colorado, you have to bring your best. As one of the mecca's of cycling in the United States, Colorado features some of the best climbs, views, and competition. When the weather is good, it's impossible not to have a great ride. That's why we were so excited to build Jorge the perfect machine, tailored for him to take on anything Colorado throws his way.
To start, Jorge wanted the best since Colorado demands it. So he, of course, began with the Latigo RS1 model. Then we added some fast climbing wheels, a never-say-die Ultegra 8000 groupset, and Zipp carbon components to fully enjoy any road Colorado has to offer. To top it off, we added his favorite Brooks saddle and dialed in his fit to start riding immediately.
This perfect combination of style and function can take on the massive elevation changes Colorado throws at its cyclists!
Here's the awesome build!

It is always a pleasure to build up our frames with parts that we believe in. We would like to thank Brooks, Shimano, Zipp, HED, and Pirelli for their continued support!
Sometimes the biggest thing holding you back from the bike of your dreams is your old bike. Instead of an old bike taking up space, have your old bike work towards getting you the superbike you really want! We call it the Trade-Up Program.
