Daphne’s Disc Allroad:

Daphne came to me looking to upgrade her 10 year old road bike.  She was recently hit by a car, which damaged tendons/nerves in her left hand.  She noticed that she was having a hard time shifting the front derailleur and using the front brake.  I built her new bike using the Hope v twin hydraulic disc system to reduce the amount of pressure needed at the levers to slow down.  A Sram compact double crankset was used to reduce the amount of shifting she would have to do .  I paired the compact double with an 11-36 cassette, so that she wouldn’t have to give up any gearing over her previous triple.  Other part substitutions from my normal Sram Force kit include, Thomson stem and seatpost, a Cane Creek 110 headset, and a Notubes Iron Cross disc wheelset with a pair of Continental 4 season 28c tires.  A handmade steel unicrown and a beautiful three color paint job complete the build.  The graphic on the chainstays is Daphne’s own hand writing of her name in Arabic.  Spectrum then scans the image and paints it on the frame.  Her husband Pat also rides one of my bikes.
