    It's collection only so at least you'll get some entertainment when picking up the bike.

    Very nice! Paint is lovely. You and @Thrasher could go on a new serotta owners ride and compare colordo to colorado iii.

    Paint work is lovely. Annoying as I was looking for a colorado iii for ages and I bought a tupelo glider built by serotta only a couple months ago. I'll watch in the wings.

    Here's a full carbon columbus muscle fork at 1 inch steerer. Bit too bulky for me.

    I have a rear tyre clearance issue that if anyone could advise on would be greatly appreciated.

    I bought a probably custom 90's tri frame recently and the tyre clearance to the seat tube is tiny. A 700x23c clincher around 100psi on 15/18mm diameter rims rubs on the seat tube. Due to the move away from skinny tyres, 18c or 20c clinchers are hard to find and most are race orientated so don't have much durability. The clearance to the seat tube is around 22mm at on a 700c wheel without tyre. I have only really used clinchers but wonder if tubeless may have a lower profile tyre as they are run at lower pressures, especially on a wider rim.

    The skinny tyre then leads to wheel width questions. The ETRTO recommendations seem to be on the high side. What would people recommend for wheel internal/external diameter for thin tyres as a real world low level limit?
