This is a sick build we did for our friend Mimis. The brief given to us by the customer included road bike training rides, light touring, CX races and adventure bike packing for the summer.
Can all of these things fit in one bike choice? Ofcourse!
These frames we have been going on here at 48×17 are so versatile they can be transformed into anything. This build is our own proposal for a geared bicycle that can take advantage of most fun bike use Greece has to offer without spending a fortune on.
Brother Keppler is the ideal frame (good price too!) for such a thing and using the new Brother carbon disc fork makes the bike lighter and more prone to training rides and CX racing. The frame offers bosses for rear racks and classic geometry for frame bags etc.
We build it up with Gevenalle shifting on Shimano 105 rear d. and Avid mechanical disc brakes. Mechanical is always preferred for adventure type bike since they can be fixed easier by the rider himself. Wheelset is Mavic Aksyum dressed on Scwalbe CX Comp 30s. Our favorite detail is the Salsa Cowbell handlebars.
Totally dialed gravel grinder for Mimis.
