This newest run of cross frames were ready to ship in January, which meant that owners had to wait about 4 weeks for the frames to arrive. However, a couple of new owners live in Taiwan and they got their frames before I even had a chance to see them. Lucky. Here's one from Jack who lives in Daliao in the southern part of Taiwan. I'm sure the opportunities for dirt road riding in Taiwan are abundant as the eastern half of the island is dominated by an impressive mountain range with peaks in the 3,000+ meter range (286 mountain peaks over 3,000 meters with the highest being 3,952 meters). And out of the cities, there is plenty of lowland country with criss-crossed roads - dirt and paved. Perfect terrain for a cross bike.
Jack built his bike with Sachs drivetrain, TRP brakes, and Kinlin/105 wheels. Thanks Jack. I hope you have many miles of fun riding on your new bike.
