    How Will You Be Using Your Rob Roy? (Group Buy)

    I know there's some overlap but what's going to be the primary function of your Rob Roy?

    I ordered two frames... one for light offroad use and for commuting in bad weather, and one for road-style riding (centuries, group rides; etc).

    I plan to use mine for SSCX, as well are general riding and commuting. I ride everywhere, so I change bikes depending on my mood.

    I thought about it but in the course of the frame's life it'll probably do everything under the sun.

    Thus, "primary".

    Hahaha, nice! I'm moving all my components from my 54cm Rob Roy to the new 56cm Rob Roy GB frame. It's currently set up with a 44/40 compact double up front and a 17/21 dingle cog fixed / 17/19 dos eno freewheel in the rear, so I've got several gears to play with. It's my main commuter and getting around town bike.
