November 17.13 – Robbs Gravel Grinder

Robb needed a bike that would go everywhere and deal with all his cycling needs. It was to be his commuter, his tourer, his bridle way bike, all that and still be his Sunday best too.

We went with a 853 front end and 931 rear, polished the stays and custom Donhou rear disc post mount and led the frame out with a Wound Up fork. Full Sram Red Wifli group set gives a nice wide spread of gears for when the going gets a little tougher and BB7 SL’s giving great predictable all weather loaded and unloaded braking. Other components include Hope, Thomson and Brooks and the frame is finished with a subtle “have to look twice” fade in the paint from deep red through to a dark plum across the frame.

Lots of tire clearance for those wide Jack Browns and mudguards when Robb wants to fit them, this bike is ready to tackle whatever Robb wants to through at it.
