Titanium Allroads:

What can I say? I love them…….

First up is a long reach brake version. I was going for classic from start to finish on this one. Nothing fancy here; threaded bb, standard headtube, 27.2mm seatpost, long reach brakes, fastback chain and seatstays, and the smooth ride of titanium in medium sized diameters.

I finished it off with¬†Campagnolo’s¬†beautifully revised Athena kit, Grand Cru brakes, Wound Up fork, Cane Creek 110 headset, and a pair of titanium King cages. I was also able to track down the older black logo Ritchey classic stem/post as it matches the Athena parts perfectly. A pair of DT 350/Velocity A23 wheels setup tubeless with Huchinson cross tires keeps this thing rolling. The cherry on top is a sterling silver head badge set against a hand brushed finish.

Next is a design that uses a cyclocross fork and mini-v brakes. This style has the potential for more tire clearance if you need it.

I also make this style of bike using disc brakes. This is becoming the more popular route, but I still love the rim brake version. Heck, I’ll take one of each!
