Nice looking bike. I prefer the straight-bar version, although I like the orange colour. Not sure about the v-brakes though. I though cyclo-cross bikes traditionally had centre-pull brakes. I wonder how white looking that bar tape would be after your first cyclo-cross.
Yep, that's my N+1 on my shopping list, the brakes are mini v's but with mid length arms which allow the greater clearance but still use of standard pull levers....they would work with STI/Ergo as well.
I love the orange and think the bike looks great, finally saw one in the flesh last week and wasn't disappointed.
Collected the bike today and went out for my first proper ride.
Very impressed. Although never having a single-speed bike before I've not got much to compare it against.
Seems pretty stable, nice and comfy. Conti Speed King tyres were fine in the dry, suspect they may not be so good in the wet.
Might be a wee bit overgeared for hilly off-road stuff but that would be easily sorted.
