I wouldn't bet on the palace:r taking anything bigger than 25. The rear brake bridge it's just stupidly placed.
It seems pretty good so far. It only routes through the downtube and exits just by the BB, so no funny angles. Deent compressionless outers should keep it from being too sloppy.
@mattspare - loving it so far. Bought it for audaxing as it had almost identical geo to my audax bike, but lighter and a little lower. Got some carbon wheels coming soon (with dyno hub) so should be a good km killer!
Got the frame cheap off eBay for a 2020 crit season cheap build but as Covid put a stop to that it's now the daily driver with posh bits while I get the other bike resprayed / built / wait for Shimano etc.
Need to sort the Di2 cable out when I can be arsed, will likely route out of the other side and heatshrink it to the rear brake cable.
Apart from the barbag that looks perfect for crits!
was just about to tag you
Aye, frame feels great, dead responsive and fast, nice change to my usual steel bikes.
Dubious about bags but it's pretty handy tbf.
Why do road bikes not get a frame bag for the aero advantage, makes you think
Bike looks good, love a bowmans
both are sick. almost bought a weald and now regret not somewhat (stolen winter bike came back to me)
Palace at Turners Hill en-route to a criterium yesterday.
My heels +wide chainstays+ not brilliant paintwork = quite a scuffed chainstay.
Great bike for 120km with a techy crit in the middle though!
Such a lovely bike.
