Hey WWs,

Curious to see what's out there for options on a racey-road geo type frame for all-road conditions in aluminum. Basically, I'd love to get hands on a Low LK Allroad or something, but Andrew isn't taking any new orders for the foreseeable future. Do similar fabricators exist? Mass-produced options? Any input is appreciated!

Maybe the Mason Definition?
Clearance for 35mm tires without mudguards

Kinesis?

The RTD can take up to 34mm oficially but I'm sure 35mm gravel tyres would fit fine. The 55.5cm RTD is very similar to the 55cm LK Allroad in terms of stack and reach.
They also do the GX Race but that's more a proper gravel bike and not a all road one.

I'd be hard pressed to look past the Allez Sprint.... Specialized is really conservative in their tire clearances, and having ridden 33mm tires on my Aethos, and mocked them up in my SL7 build, I'd have no problems running them or even a true 35mm in dry conditions. The Allez states the same clearance as the other two.

Maybe? Not really sure what's considered high-end aluminum...

Can apparently be done in a gravel/all-road? option.

There was a recent similar question asked at LFGSS. A few euro fabricators mentioned with decent pricing.
Could be worth looking into tubing options.
Curve Grovel ti.

Tommasini will do an aluminum Fire Gravel bike. Custom geometry and paint at no extra charge.

"Perfect roads exist, but at some point they end. The fun shouldn’t. The Poggio PR21 AllRoad is our quintessential do-it-all bike. With clearance for 32mm tires, thru axles, and disc brakes, our aim isn’t bulky excess, but capable speed. "

32mm tires are so 2018.

I'll second the suggestion of a Mason Definition. I really like mine. The only downside is that (according to their website) they won't have more stock until November.

How large tyres would you be comfortable riding with it? 33 mm is official without mudguards but that could be conservative.

Here's the clearance at the seatstay bridge with Continental Taraxagum 700x35, which actually measure 35mm wide by 32mm high on the 22mm internal width Light Bicycle AR28 rims I'm using. Vertical clearance at the chainstay bridge and form crown is pretty much the same, side-to-side clearance at those locations slightly less than here (but still sufficient for 35mm width tyre).
