Well, I have some options I'm considering, but I'm waffling on a number of things. It's going to be a slower build than normal for me. I guess I'm leaning toward building it very similar to my BMC MC though - mix of modern and older stuff.. We'll see.

Initial build done. Reach is a bit long for this style of bike, so I'll need to change up the stem and bars (forgot the stem I had was -17).

Those are 42c Challenge tires on Mavic Allroad Elite wheels. Centaur 11 group. 11-36 SunRace w WolfTooth. Nitto bars/stem/post. Cheap Deore LX brakes because the Avid Ultimates didn't want to work on these posts for some reason.

EDIT: the 42c tires do not fit in the back on these rims when fully inflated - side knobs rub.. I'm a bit bummed by this since I wanted (and asked for) clearance for 43mm BG Rock n Road tires. It could be that the Challenges are oversized a bit, or pouff out on these rims. I'll have to do some measuring with calipers I guess. My whole point with this one was to have gobs of clearance front/rear for riding it in the rough - and being limited to 38s means it's got what my other gravel rig has. There is plenty of room up front though.

EDIT II: the bike probably will fit BG RnRs, just not on these oversized rims, and I didn't think about that when discussing desired clearances - that's on me. But it is a lesson to learn - can't take tire size literally or think it's a standard. I'll probably get the flotation I need out of the next size down given the rim width anyway.

I think you are crazy for not going disc on this one, however I love this thing. Best color, fork looks amazing. Digging the build. Another banger

whoa! the bike looks awesome. Glad its come together. Really curious to hear what you feel is similar to and different from your Kirk in ride and also curious about your thoughts on the BMC after riding this. The build is excellent.

1st, I want to commend you Dan on NOT going disc. 2nd, I want to commend you on going Campy and 3rd, I have always, always, always had a love affair with SeaFoam Lobsters. So Good!
