Some recent photos.

I got rid of the Enves as I wanted clinchers.

The Reynolds are very nice wheels.

Thanks. Yeah, long legs and (un proportionately) short torso.

I tried running some 28c tires on my H-Plus Sons wheels and found the clearance a bit tight in the front fork at around 1mm.

Any recommendations for a fork with more clearance?

The new whisky no.7 rd+ looks nice but is a bit pricy at $400US.

That blue is a huge improvement but why didn't you also have the fork sprayed that color?

Fork and stem of same color could be a great combo.

I guess the issue isn't aesthetic, as it is more functional because I want to run a 28mm tire for gravel roads. hoping to save a bit of weight too. Looking at Chinese carbon, but there isn't really much info on clearance.

Looks like Santa will be bringing an Enve fork!

Nice bike, but in original colour looks better.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of the ride once you've got those on – I too have an Acciaio and love it. Great handling bike. That blue looks smashing BTW …
