Additional Info This is one of JT's race bikes. I got it from Stan Mavis; he co-founded Pearl Izumi USA. He originally got the bike from Tomac after sponsoring him. Many of the components have the month/year dates etched on them to keep track of how long stuff would last during a season. The rear disc wheel has two sets of numbers written in sharpie by his mechanic; the number of rides and the number of hours ridden on the wheel. When JT got up to 50 hours they would replace the wheel before it would fall apart.
