Tom’s Road/disc/Di2

Road disc brakes are definitely on their way – I’ve done several bikes with mechanical calipers, but this is my first road disc build with hydraulic brakes. Full internal hose routing combined with the internal Di2 wiring makes for a very clean build. Tom is a tall chap so this is also one of the largest road frames I have done. We had to wait a while for Chris King to release the 24h versions of their R45 disc hubs – which match up with the Enve 3.4 disc clincher rims, shod with 28C tires. A custom stem matches the toptube angle and includes a mount for the Di2 control box. Weight as shown is 18lbs. Fabulous paint in EC team colors (including the rims) by Eric at Colorworks, captured as always by ace photographer Tina Buescher.
