  • Cheers i was getting a bit of flack for that fork. It's so smooth now. I just need to change the tyres for something less flimsy

  • Definitely finished with this now. Fresh 105 cassette, kmc sl chain and praxis cx chainrings. The chainrings are massive upgrade on the soft fsa ones that came on it. Also just picked up some conti terra trail 40's on here. This is the 2016 model which is only meant to be able to take a 35mm in the rear but these squeezed in fine.

  • Too cool. I just picked up a canti focus mares carbon, thinking about similar light gravel vibes

  • Nice is it black with blue and pink? Those ones looked nice. What needs doing to gravel it up?

  • White with red and blue graphics. Just a frameset at the moment, i am gathering parts. Looks like i will do it up in 1x with ultegra rx and 6800 shifters, trp cx brakes. Having bitex/kinlin xr31 wheels built up at the moment

  • Nice half my wheels are on Bitex including these and they are as good as anything twice the price that I've had before. Are you sticking it up on here?

  • Hopefully i will document it. I need to check that no issues with the frame get in the way first, but it should end up pretty light so that should be interesting

  • Yeah should make 8 kg no problems. I'll look forward to it

  • Is it this one? And you mocked my white Guerciotti for being too garish 😉 i like this but would say gumwalls are a must.

    The guerciotti is still an insalata tricolore
