Beautiful bike and excellent color choice! I've always thought having a Roberts would be cool to match my first name and town I live in. Tempting if I could liquidate some of my inventory.........

Sorry about the sale, did you have the rear stays dimpled for more tire clearance. Thinking about 650ing my Charlie Roberts touring bike, but it won’t take 42 w/o deeper dimples.
Best
