  • This is my only bike now (bar the mountain bike) and it's alright.

    I have guards to put on It, someday.

    LFGSS strapline circa 2019. Looks great.

  • Looks even sweeter in the flesh

  • Thanks! It's right mix of sturdy and fun.

  • After a year of procrastinating I finally finished this... A bit dated, I know, but still worth documenting before I ruin it fitting rack and mudguards😂

  • SPAM ALERT: My Volare 853 is still for sale. I have amended the ad a bit, and I'll consider a swap for deep sections wheels or another frameset in 55/56.

  • Finished (almost) my Volare Disc 853

  • Nice! Let us know, how you like it. I am thinking about this framset for a while now..

  • Took my Day One out for a couple of laps round Richmond Park, which was very agreeable.

    Came across a chap very kindly drafting a Royal Parks Defender about 30cm off his back bumper... which is obviously a super smart thing to do 🤦♂️

  • My CDF is currently carrying me from Vancouver to San Fran over the course of 17 days.

    2 days and about 130 miles in, it’s been very wet so far, wish I had full rear guard but was a bit tight with the 42c. Weather set to improve from tomorrow.

  • looks great, love the bike

  • New to the club

    side note - do I need to have the head tube faced before fitting headset? not had an external headset bike for a while

  • I love that colour - dunno about headset facing, Ive never bothered because I'm lazy & impatient, but in theory a new frame probably should have the faces cleaned up before you build it up, enjoy!

  • Also while I'm here - anyone know the max tyre clearance on the 2013-ish 29er High Latitudes?

    Going to check one out locally as a cheap MTB runabout & already wondering how I can tart it up a bit

  • Picked me up a Tour De Fer. Fantastic ride. Swapped the fenders over for some VO hammered ones, swift Paloma on the front for day trips. Such a smooth ride.

    Quite tempted to get some tan walls though, maybe in the spring.

  • I want this frameset... If only I had the monies

  • Current iteration of my CdF - winter gravel mode, with successful coke bottle tubeless inflator to get the gravel kings on.

  • Looking good. Gravelkings are a bugger to get on tubeless, have struggled with several pairs, but do love em once they're on.

  • What a day it was - definitely investing in an air shot for next time

  • Last time I fitted a pair it took about 3hrs, 1 1/2hr to get em on, another 1 1/2hr to inflate em with a track pump. Still, some of my favourite tyres.
