ur on the money, there is 28 mm difference in axle to crown measurement between an enve cross and a enve road fork. you can pretty much stick that to the head tube (-:

A few changes/updates, namely ENVE stem, seatpost and tubular wheels.

I like your style, man. With all the different set-ups...I'm continually impressed with how good this bike looks. AND, I'm majorly picky about what type of bikes really like slick to me. Nice work!

I just picked up a new cross frameset. I might go with with either disc front/v rear (if I decide to spring for a new fork) or maybe I'll go your set-up route, as it does have a nice rear hanger.

Oh and...sorry if I missed it, but when you have this set-up at a 1x...is that a proper 1x crankset/ring or just a double set up as a single?

I'm thinking of going 1x10 on my new cross build (which I'll use for bad weather/commuting/locking up, do-it-all; I already have a nice cross race bike)

Cheers man! This bike has definitely gone through some iterations.....in fact, I have some new wheels on the way from Jones Precision Wheelworks, CK Mango laced to Easton R90SL rims.

The 1x was a Wolf Tooth narrow wide chainring for Shimano. I have a 46 tooth that has never been used if you want it.

Yeah, a bit of an odd setup, but since I will be doing some road riding on it I wanted a bit of better braking that you get with the mini-v, but the rear has a pretty trick cable stop for the rear brake so used a canti in the back. Works pretty well as the front mini is more powerful than a canti.

I never was able to get Paul Mini Moto to work will ST-6700 levers. They have the same cable pull as your 5800 (super SLR) levers.

Even when I adjusted them to 1-2mm away from the rim I ran out lever travel before I got excellent braking.

Hmmm.....I don't have an issue, I get what I consider excellent power/modulation. I now have them mated to SRAM Force 22 levers, but I would expect them to have similar pull to the Shimano levers. Per Paul's website the Mini Moto is designed for short-pull brakes.

The latest bar tape looks great. What brand is it please?

It's Cinelli for Manual For Speed....sold out unfortunately. I think they still might have a few in Blue or Pink left.

This iteration of the bike looks so much better. The stem does it. :thumbup:

That ENVE was an eyesore (it is always an eyesore.) Nice swap.
