An east-coast, mud-friendly road bike. She'll take long-reach caliper brakes, up to about 30c tires comfortably, and fenders when needed. Perfect for those long New England dirt road rides, the office park crit this weekend, or anything in between.
The perlescent white is pretty cool looking, though it's hard to see it very well in this photo. And yes, that's a lugged crown road fork. Yes, I will make you one too if you want one (or a segmented crown, your call). Or, if you order soon, you can get one of the Edge forks I scored earlier this year instead... I've got 2 left.
