This is my new daily disc brake road commuter/trainer (25 mile round trip). I was riding a Litespeed Firenze for about four years. I got tired of losing braking power in the rain, so I started building this.

I am really happy with it, but it was a lot more expensive and time consuming than I expected.

Winwood Dualist Carbon Disc fork
Chris King headset (mango)
Honjo fenders (stripped and anodized)
Old Man Mountain Sherpa Rack (stripped and anodized)
Quarq power meter

Avid BB7s
DT Swiss Onix rear hub with Mavic CXP33/Chris King front hub with Mavic CXP33
