Willis has been working for over nine years as a messenger in New York City and also rides with Mishka‘s D.A.R.T team. When he came first in the Tracklocross event a few years ago and won a Continuum track frame, Willis negotiated an alternative prize – this Daccordi TT. As with any prized frame that’s a daily rider, it’s seen plenty of variations in components and layout, but Willis reckons it’s reaching perfection. The Campagnolo gruppo is a healthy mix of C Record and Chorus, sourced from local bike shops and swap meets.
Purists may scoff at the MTB riser bars and BMX flat pedals. But when you’ve been riding for as long as Willis, in an environment like NYC, you can set a bike up however you damn well please. Check out more of Willis’ bikes on his blog, Milk Money.
