For this frame, geometry is the star of the show. The rider is positioned over the rear wheel, giving stability and rewarding steering from the hips. The tight wheelbase preserves snappy maneuverability. This combo really sings while descending. The large chainstays give torsional stiffness under acceleration, without compromising vertical compliance. The result is lively and bright handling, with punchy acceleration.
Finally, the groupo: Campagnolo Super Record, Rim Brake. Normally these svelte carbon components pull focus, especially the “battleaxe” crank. On this build, they provide depth layer on more sophistication to the build.
Tires are Rene Herse Chinook Pass 700 x 28c Extralight.
