My everyday, do-it-all bike. I work delivery on it ~250mi a week. I love it to death, it's incredibly smooth and quick. It's a 1x10 geared to fit Chicago's flat roads, the 42x14-18 cluster is where I spend the majority of the time. Comes in at 22lbs flat, which I think is pretty solid for an all steel bike. Weight could drop to mid-20lbs with a carbon disc fork (690g) as opposed to steel (1040g), and a Selle saddle (~250g) as opposed to the Serfas (430g). Upgrades coming when the weather improves: Wheelset: Kinlin XR-31T O/C to DT Hugi-Hayes 32H front, Velocity A23 O/C to DT Onyx 32H rear Saddle: Brooks B17 Imperial Stem: Thomson X4 (80mm, 10deg, 31.8) Seatpost: Thomson Elite (setback, 27.2, 330mm) Tires: Schwalbe Marathon Supreme (700x32c)
