Warranty replacement frame for my original that snapped around the BB shell. Polished to a mirror finish and built up with new parts ready for next winter. This is my winter bike, but will stay as is until the bad weather starts when it'll get more appropriate winter tyres and mudguards, most probably from PDW as well as a set of Exposure Flase/Flare lights.

Way Too Nice

This is way too nice for a foul weather bike. If that's what you mean when you say winter bike.

True, but it's hard to go

True, but it's hard to go back from nice. Isn't it? Bike geeks who are used to the best will know what I mean. Plus ti and carbon won't rust, so there's that.

Does not

disappoint :)

One hell of a winter bike,

One hell of a winter bike, for sure. Hope the calipers work for ya, although for your size I imagine you'll want something grabbier like Sram Red. I tried these once and, at 5'10" 145lbs, it was like trying to stop a bullet train with a handful of Jello. Needless to say they came right off. That's one place you don't need to skimp on grams.

That's what I'm talkin'

That's what I'm talkin' about. Hell yeah.
