I sent this bike off to Cyclocross Magazine for review. It’s designed for CX racing. Clifford already had a great position on his old bike, but I customized the geometry of the new frame to get rid of toe overlap and lower the BB a few mm.
We decked out the build with the new Shimano Dura Ace 9070 Di2 parts and HED Stinger 3 tubular wheels. Since the Stinger wheels are made in Minnesota, HED customized the layup for the impacts of cyclocross.
The logos are blue decals with ballistic grade Kevlar panels. The frame is drilled for both Di2 and internal routing for mechanical shifting. The internal routing uses are completely hidden, no-fish design. Topped off with an AppleStem integrated bar, this bike is 100% Appleman style!
