Tom's XCR

This build started from the archives of our late departed ColinR. In amongst the treasure trove of bike parts we were tasked with selling off to generate some funds for Colin's son was this unused custom built XCR frame. The geometry is a bit unusual in that it needs someone with long legs relative to their body, and obviously they need to be tall. I managed to find a buyer close to home in my brother in law, for whom I completed the build with a new 10 speed Dura-Ace / Ultegra mix, some used Easton wheels and white Cinelli finishing kit. The result is a nice understated bling look that should be gracing the streets of London any week now. May the spirit live free.
