That is beautiful! I'd buy it just for kicks if it would fit the wife or I! Trying to think of someone I know who I can push it on...

As an aside...it looks like you've run your EPS with different wheels. Did you find one set that seemed to bring out the best in the frame? I ask because I have an EPS too and I'm trying to decide on a build for it. Nice to know it fits bigger tires. GLWS!

Hmm. That's an interesting question. The Zipp 303s are stupid fast and versatile race wheels, so they're great for go-fast days. The Shimano c24s are also versatile and quite light, and maybe a better choice for expedition days where clinchers are helpful.

If I had my druthers, I'd have a mid-depth carbon tubular set and something lower depth. Best of both?

And yes, I've put 32mm file treads on the c24 wheels and they fit!

Thanks! It's funny, 303 tubs and c24s are two wheels at the top of my list.

Here's a bump for a great frame someone should grab.

Dammit...my size and a great price, especially with that paint!
Would you trade for an original watercolor by yours truly?
