Looks great! I'm after a similar look :) How wide are the fenders?

Thanks. Not sure on the width. Whatever width that accommodates up to 35c tires. I think they're the 45mm wide fenders.

Gotta go custom man! I bought the bare frameset, and pieced it all together. Final cost was not much more than the complete, but with higher quality components that I hand picked.

Yeah I got one of the Sora complete builds, but wish I had waited for the frame sets to go on sale. $300 shipped was an insane deal!

This is insanely nice build, love the raw finish of the frame! If they sold these frames in Europe I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Do the DA levers work well with disc brakes, or are you using some sort of adapter to adjust the pull?

Just to add a little: they appear to be the road version of the BB7's so they should work fine as is.

Thanks! Yeah, utility was the prime motivation for this. So I'm glad the practicality is evident.

Definitely a handsome machine you've got! If I didn't have to leave my commuter outside at work, I would totally build something killer up like this.

The silver looks hot. There's a guy with a silver that has full sram force on reddit that is also hot!

I'm angling for an older Red group as we speak.
