Ian’s Rain Bike:

Ian came to me with  specific goals of having a training bike with the same contact points and fit as his road race bike.  However, because he’s located in Portland, OR he needs it to clear a 28c tire with full coverage fenders.  Something not commonly found on a race bike.  I selected a Columbus Life 31.8mm toptube and 38.1mm downtube.  A True Temper OX Platinum 31.8mm seattube and 24mm chainstays trimmed at the dropout end for less taper.  A pair of True Temper S3 seatstays and a Columbus headtube complete the pipes.  Ian is specing the bike with a long reach Wound Up fork and a pair of Grand Cru calipers.
