Lovely build Mr Crow. Might I enquire as to how much your packrat weighs unladen? A few years ago I ran a cross check which I could never quite work out if I loved or hated. I think it was the long and low geometry which I found unsuitable. How might your Packrat compare?
It’s not light. Unscientific bathroom scale measuring puts it at 12.4kg. I suspect the rim brakes have saved a few grams over discs but otherwise no thought has been given to weight in the build.
Fit wise, I was surprised how large the 56cm feels (having had a 56cm steamroller before). It certainly feels a touch more upright. Never had a CC to compare with though.
