Dear All, now that I have retired the bike that I've used for the last 18 months to commute into work is no longer required and likely to gather dust. Encouraged by Mrs S I have decided, reluctantly, to offer this lovely bike up for sale; it'll be a great commuter, do cyclocross with ease, and it is up to the latest gravel/adventure bike trend capable of taking up to 40c tyres.
My daily commute, about 3 times a week, was a 36 mile round trip, and I used a SQR mounted Carradice Pendle bag, full SKS guards etc. It was an absolute joy, whatever the weather - I've used Schwalbe Marathon Winter Road 35c spiked tyres very comfortably with the guards. I had it set up as a triple, I've changed that to a double, and have replaced some of the worn/marked items (seatpost, tyres and mudguards). The frame and forks have some superficial scuff marks on the left side, presumably from the Sheffield Stand that I secured it to at work - the photos show these. I've not included any pedals.
