Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Big off road tires with carbon aero wheels... made me scratch my head. The 1'' of cable routing through the stem doesn't do much for me either. Seems kinda silly and really doesn't clean up the cockpit any.

It's an internal cable stop for the cantilever brake cable. Without it you'd need an external one hanging under the bars or mounted to the front of the fork crown.

Ah, I see. That makes sense then.

Deep section wheels are a popular choice for CX racers on muddy or sandy courses. It's significantly harder to pedal if your rim is submerged in mud or sand so often riders will choose a deep rim, again depending on the race course.

I agree they look out of place on that bike. Also it doesn't take a lot of sand to go over the top of a box section rim

I wouldn't mind one for my new-to-me cross bike, either. I can't slam that stem with the steerer-mounted guide.

Maybe I'll try a fork mount. Maybe I'll take a drill to one of my parts bin stems and do something stupid.

i have one of those internally routed enve/vanilla stems too. i didnt think they were still doing it. i kind of like how that one routes through the side rather than in the middle of the faceplate like mine. it feels like the bend in the housing would be less severe that way.

Love it as well. The fork is the only thing I question. It doesn't look bad, but on such a beautiful frame the fork seems lacking... but then again I have no idea what or if there is something that would look better aesthetically.

Which is fine, of course. As long as you're cool with being wrong and having bad taste.
