It's beautiful and I love the white/black look. It's also quite clean. Too bad there's not through-axle (just joking).

It's a bit over-done with the front der pulley but if there's not top pull option you need this, it'll just catch much and mud. Why not see if there's a MTB option?

That is stunning. How much do the wheels weigh?

Does the angle of the front derailleur cable get in the way at all?

Frans,

The wheels weighed just over advertised weight, right around 1470 grams I believe. I have put around a 1000 miles on them (mostly dirt/gravel roads) running Bontrager CX0s, (38f/34r) and am thoroughly impressed.

The photo makes the front D cable look like it's way out there, but in actuality it's not. I wanted to take advantage of the capability of the Yaw feature, hence the road derailleur with the Umlenker installed (which is great, btw).

The bike is perfect for what I wanted; a ride that will predominantly be used for fast gravel/dirt road, have the ability to handle light trails, and be able to keep up on the occasional paved group ride. I still need to do some tweaking yet, but it is already my go to bike!

Back in the late 80s there was a craze among mountain bikers of running handlebars backwards and upside down to force a "more natural" elbows out position. I believe Peregrine was among the manufacturers that promoted this idea. I tried it... didn;t like it. But to each his own...


If Chris Froome did MTB...

Haha. We'll see how cobbles suit him this next tour.

Just drooled a bit and saw my perfect CX bike, except for the non-flat underside of the top tube. I'm a big girl and ovals hurt.

I bet there is something on the market that turns your round tubes to flat. You could even make some kind of ghetto thing with a inner tube.
