Some photos of Power’s new cross bike. It’s going to be her training, ‘credit-card’ touring bike, and general all-rounder to ride into the ground when she’s not racing. She wanted to run mustache bars so i shortened the top tube a bit to account for the increased reach of those bars. Pretty standard geometry for what I like but with a bit lower BB (65mm BB drop). She will ride trail with this in the Rockies so i didn’t want to make it too low. Other than that it’s got 72/73 angles, 610 front center, a 6 degree sloped top tube, 424mm chainstays. It fits 40’s but may need 35’s in conjunction with fenders.
It’s really an old school cross build. Cantilever brakes only, no room for a tapered steerer, and a lugged crown fork. I used True Temper OX Platnium for the front triangle (8/5/8 both top and down tubes), Dedacaai s-bendy chainstays, True Temper 16mm x 0.7 seastays with custom s-bends, Paragon dropouts. I added stainless fender eyelets to front and rear of the bike so she can run fenders. Frame weight 4.2lbs, fork weight 2lbs with uncut steerer. Hope you like it!
