    For the kind of riding I do, and the kind of rider I am now, I can not think of a more complete bike. Setup, balance, aesthetics, all perfect. Congratulatons Steve!

    Minor tweak.

    Replaced the DA Pontiac hubcaps with XTR discs, apparently unobtanium in the US at the moment.

    It's the little things...

    Ongoing tinkering....

    Demo wheels with 700x40. I might dial it back to 700x38 and call it perfect.

    TTX1, I thought of you the other day swapping 650 to 700c on my Seven. The new wheels have Shimano RT86 rotors, which are doing quite a bit less pinging and deforming under hard braking than their Ultegra counterparts. Something to consider if you're still in rotor trouble.

    Viva the current do-all paradigm!

    Hey, thanks.

    I had good luck with those in the past, but I don’t think they were ever produced in 140 or Centerlock.

    Presently taking a long hard look at RT81... although the DA rotors on the demo wheels were fine (the shop’s rotors, not mine). Probably bedded in properly... and I had the luxury of using them in dry conditions.

    The 40s look awfully tight on that seat tube!

    I should stop looking at this bike. It's the one that's going to send me over the edge to throwing a deposit towards the Boston area.

    Do it!

    The wait went by quickly - think of it as a gift to your future self.

    Also, the 40s had a few mm in there, hard to see from the pic, but definitely tightish.

    Enough room for a short/clean demo ride, not a setup I'd ride regularly.

    FWIW, the bike was spec'd for 700x38. The seattube / FD turns out to be the critical point, as the stays are relatively shortish for a bike that takes 38s... I mainly ride 35s, zero clearance issues... Could probably go bigger with longer stays if that's your priority.

    I have intentions of Marie Kondo-ing a few bikes in the near future so I might have to jump in the queue before that process starts. Might be a good 30th birthday present for myself.

    38mm is plenty big in a 700c. Was yours designed to go 650b as well?

    Yup, 650x53. Have not ventured past 42.

    I might try to see how large I can go with studded 26ers or 650b if such tires exist, next winter.

    The stays are 420mm, so handling/climbing is great for a bike that can run fat tires.

    Discontinuation of 5e midreach fork inspired a replacement from Chris Igleheart to keep New England theme. This time added rack mounts, connectorless dropouts for Son hub, a touch more rake at 55 mm in segmented design.

    Brief ride - feels nice in a solid with a bit of spring type of way if that makes sense
