Occasionally, i will get some shudder, but it's not bad and has proven manageable.

Thanks!

The trailer was all DIY attempt, I have learned a thing or two from building it and travelling quite a bit with it now. If and when I'm ready to go for V2, there will be some tweaks, but as it stands, it's a very capable, comfortable home on wheels!

still on the quest to find just the right "goldilocks" tires for this bike. testing out some new schwalbe's. didnt realize these were not tubeless ready, so i'm back to tubes for now. so far, tires feel good for my purposes. fwiw, these are labeled as a 33c tire and measure out to 35mm on my wideish rims.

Can you have a rack there of some kind? I love this bike but a cross bike means carrying a few things in my plans. A camera. I could do it w/a bag strapped on the bars though which could even protect it better. Have you tried it?

Cool bike. How does it compare to the Breakaway?

sure, there is a world of bikepacking gear out there these days that doesnt require any braze ons to carry light-ish loads. i've done some very light credit card touring with this bike and it performs just fine.

Angry, will this fit any of the Yummy tire line from Sim-Works? Those tires look interesting to me but at present I don’t have a 700c bike that goes larger than 35c.

If there is a single non-boutique bike that I could have, it’d be a Ritchey.

I sold one like this with Plexus stays and it sits in my friends garage as part of a Ritchey collection. Kinda want it back

Such a good looking bike and sounds like a nice ride.

I don't know if there's any difference in clearance with the straight Swiss Cross (would like to know), but the breakaway reviewed in the following shows relatively tight clearance for 40mm.

good question. it would definitely be dependent on what rims they were mounted on, but it would be tight, for sure. i wish they made those sweet green homage tires in a 33c
