Selling my all-around favorite bike of the 50 or so I've owned over the last 15 years. I've tried them all and this was my best all around pavement machine. Selling only due to being forced into electronic shifting by f-ing aging thumb joints. Custom designed for me in collaboration with Davis Carver at Carver Bikes. This was designed somewhat in the spirit of Rivendell Rambouillets I had owned. Not too upright, just long enough, and with a longer headtube for all-day comfort for my style of riding. Davis built this with my 185 lbs. in mind and me telling him about my love to stand-to-climb riding style. Chainstays are bit bigger than smaller and we butted the downtube. I specified flat rear dropouts cuz I'm not fond of the hooded ones. I am particularly fond of the cosmetics of the weld quality and how the chaninstays are finished where they meet the rear dropouts.

59.5 center to center top tube
58.5 seat tube
72.25 seat tube angle
73 headtube angle
226mm headtube
310mm fork steer tube
102.5 wheelbase
80mm bb drop

Drivetrain is all brand new except for the bottom bracket. Frame is ti and care is easy with a couple of included Scotch Brite pads. Wheels, tight, true, smooth. Fork a couple of nicks but still pretty.

Fork is Enve 2.0 with blacked out logos. Steerer length is 310mm and the fork works fine with a real 28mm tire. The rear works fine with a 28mm Conti 4000 that measures 30mm on these A23 rims.

Wheels were built for me by a friend and they are Bike Hub Store hubs, A23 rims, and Sapim Race spokes, 28 holes front and rear.
