Handmade in USA, fillet brazed Steelman. Classy gentleman's bike.Italian Dedacci tubing. 55cm seat tube, 57cm top tube measured to the centers. Beautiful deep blue paint. Super low miles! Check out Steelmancycles on the web.Shimano Alfine 8 speed internal geared hub means no derailleurs to take care of but with a wide range of gears to handle most any terrain. Shift under full power, coasting or sitting at a light. That means you can roll up to a stop in high gear and shift down to a starting gear without moving the cranks. The hub will not need service for at least 2 years and then it takes about half an hour. The shifter is a bar end unit also made in the U.S. Chain life is dramatically improved because it does not shift or run at an angle like derailleured bikes. The chain is phosphate coated to prevent rust making this a great all weather commuter.
Since the frame was designed for cyclocross, it has no eyelets for rack or fenders but a clever person could easily mount fenders. Mounting a rack would be more challenging.Rims are WTB Dual Duty 29ers with no noticeable brake wear. Schwalbe Kojak slicks mounted. Spokes are black DT Swiss Competition.
