Shlomy’s all-road bike

Call it gravel, call it all-road, groad, the name doesn’t matter – Shlomy asked me to build him a fast bike with room for 35mm tires. Up front we have a US-made carbon fork from Allied, which plugs into a 44mm headtube via a Cane Creek headset. The toptube is custom ovalised and features internally brazed bosses for the Kaibab Customs framebag. The bottle cages were positioned low to allow room for two large bottles and the bag above. Additional water capacity is provided for with a third cage on the rear of the seattube, and a fourth set of bosses under the downtube.

The rear brake hose runs internally through the downtube and T47 BB shell, to exit just in front of the rear caliper. Shifting and braking is provided by SRAM AXS eTap. Chris King hubs are laced to Enve 3.4AR rims – these 25mm internal width rims will handle 28mm and up tires; shown here with 30mm tubeless tires installed.

Shlomy worked with Roger at Svelte Cycleworks to create the paint design, which features topo lines from his local landscape where the bike will be ridden. It was superbly executed by Colorworks. Final weight as shown with the bags is 17.9lbs.
