In which case I'll go second dibs if hypothetically postable.
It's beautiful. I stopped myself from buying it as I couldn't justify owning it on an A) basis which, imo, is the best thing for it.
Completely understand the excitement, of course :)
Thanks very much. I've had a chance to take it out properly a couple of times now and it rides beautifully. The only complaint I have is that it gets a bit squirrelly on the descents, which may be fork trail (better with a front load?) or it may just be that I'm just not quite used to it yet!
Decided to build up a 531c audax / light tourer frame I picked up last year for a song. Had been meaning to get it repainted but it's still structurally sound, despite the slightly grotty paintwork. Excuse the threadless adapter - 31.8 bars...
New seller expertly added the word 'Gravel' to the title.
Insert Drake meme about 'touring/cx' vs 'gravel' here
That is lovely.
Tentative second dibs on the first one if @crossedthread changes their mind!
Got all my gear this week. Went for the pro-fit which is snug but fits well enough. Hopefully it'll fit the post-winter version of me even better!
Will be representing in my new rural Scottish ends.
Huge thanks to @lowbrows and @6pt
You can get a 13-26 on happily with 52/42 front rings. You might manage a 28t on the rear if you move the wheel right back in the dropouts OR you could fit a 52/39 chainring combo with the 13-26.
Your mileage may vary, but it starts to get very sketchy beyond that.
He seems to be pretty reasonable thankfully. Few grumbles but I know these things are a hassle as a seller.
Thanks for the advice all.
