When I spec'd this frame I wanted enough room for fenders and I knew this would give me enough room to fit CX tyres. The road geometry isn't ideal and there isn't much mud clearance on the fork but it works :-) This frame hasn't had much use the past couple of years so it's nice to get it built back up and into the rotation.

This is the third groupset this frame has worn - a R685 hydro disc / mechanical shifting with DuraAce derailleurs. Cranks are Campag Record because finding 177.5mm cranks isn't easy or cheap. I much prefer mechanical shifting to Di2.
