A fellow Field disc road owner!

Not that it’d befit a ‘Bely build,’ but I have CK R45 laced to LightBicycle 35mm deep x 25mm wide. They aren’t in the weight ballpark of those quoted above, but are really solid and plenty quick (see below).

Thank you for the recommendation! Thinking about the AX vs LSE. Also rim depth! Any suggestions and advice would be great!

Beautiful Field... can’t wait to be part of the Cool kids Club again!

If only I was young and/or cool enough to be part of such a club! This bike, as I’m sure was evident from your last Field, will take you everywhere in comfort and at a decent lick.

@leicaman and I rode across Japan (370km in 17 hours, inclusive of stops) and I was on the Field. Didn’t put a foot wrong and wasn’t sore in any way after (just sleep-deprived). The disc brakes will be a revelation too, I’m sure.

Partially depends on what you want to see, but Bonsai Cycle Works is a good one (also has a little cafe space). Above Bike Store is good, but for me CX-type stuff than road bike.

I noticed your frame and bits on John’s Instagram. Very nice.

I agree that Bonsai is worth a visit. Have you been to the Cherubim shop in Tokyo?

Ha ha. Fair enough. Did you bring a bike with you? Guess not if you were picking up a frame from cherubim. NalsimaFrend is nearby but not an amazing shop. Crown Gears is in Kita Sando (near Bonsai) and Rapha Tokyo is also in Kita Sando.

How long are you in Japan for?

Absolutely stunning, I saw it on Instagram earlier. Can’t wait to see it built up to your usual standard!

Blimey, thank goodness it's arrived! There hasn't been this much anticipation since Godzuki's wifes first bike! Can't wait to see it finished and hear what you think of the ride :)
