Nada

I got this frameset for a steal from the LBS I work at, I took all my old components off the Specialized Allez I have been riding and put the on the Kestrel. Unfortunately it takes a braze on FD, so I settled for the nicest one we had in stock in the store which was Tiagra... I will get around to replacing it one day.

Oh, and Veggie if I can get

Oh, and Veggie if I can get a spare couple hours to ride this weekend youre free to ride it. Unfortunately with the PITA internal cable routing, I set the limits in the rear such that its a single speed. Hopefully will get a chance to route cables in the next few days.

Eh, not going for a weight

Eh, not going for a weight saving build, just one of those little things that bothers me (Tiagra FD). I have a Lynskey coming in 5 weeks now that will be a super light build. This bike took my daily rider roadbike from 20 lbs down to 18 with the frameset swap. Sweet potato fries really are an awesome easy healthier substitue for regular fries BTW.

FD

There's really no gain in paying so much more for a nicer FD. Tiagra is definitely good enough! I mean, FD use brute force anyway. What will a Dur-Ace one give you more? A loss of a few grams? For true weight loss, take a bottle cage off. Oh, and don't eat those fries!
Whatever, beautiful bike, beautiful build! Love it!

Sweet potato fries!?!

You need to let me ride

You need to let me ride this. I'll get the de bernardi rolling and you can ride that.
