We've dressed the frame functionally with the emphasis on long-lasting and maintenance-free riding. Highlights include the reliable Shimano square-taper bottom bracket, the sealed cartridge bearing M:Part Elite headset, smooth rolling Formula hubs, trusty Shimano R451 stoppers and the comfy new Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres - which provide ample room for full-length mudguards without being sluggish or puncture-prone. The 46/18T gearing gives a perfect 'middle-of-the-road' ratio (67.4 gear inches) ensuring your knees don't pop on the climbs but you're not spinning out too quickly on the flat either. We've also kept the 120mm track rear spacing and flip-flop rear hub for those wanting the option to run fixed.

I am trying to use some gift certificates on Amazon to buy a new Brooks saddle. I am having a new bike built up for general commute / touring, steel frame, etc. It will have drop bars. Am I crazy for considering one of the saddles with the springs? Weight isn't the biggest consideration.Read More »
My wife is helping with the charity garage sale to end all charity garage sales. Seriously, these people have bought out abandoned storage units, taken donations from all over town, and have more stuff than anyplace I've ever seen. Some of the stuff has turned out to be exceptionally valuable (a $14 ... Read More »
