When he sold the company to the holding company (that also owned Serrotta) Chris went with the deal. He moved to Saratoga County to help with the transition & continued to build bikes. I was a little surprised to see the Saratoga County sticker myself but it somehow makes me feel better aboutt riding my '98 Yo btw Chris's bike is a '97 ti. I never saw a ti up close but love the externally butted tubing!

Chris is not part of the industry, but he is still interested in it. As long as we're putting up current photos of CC, here he is at the Hand-Made Bicycle show, talking to Ross Shafer (Salsa) and Joe Breeze.
