This has been my main bike for a couple of years. Relatively short top-tube (64x58) which combined with the Technomic stem gives an incredibly comfortable riding position. With a bit of fettling I've managed to squeeze 28c tyres and SKS full mudguards on using P-Clips (shame it didn't come with eyelets from the factory). Rides nicely on the road and the 28c tyres also handle towpaths and dirt paths fairly well (although I would prefer a similar frame that'll take 33.3c Jack Brown tyres). No rack eyelets but I've got some bikepacking bags which would be fine for light hostel-touring anyway. Annoyingly the BB spindle was too short to fit the granny ring... perhaps I'll sort it out, it's fairly low-geared anyway.
Future plans - I've got some Shimano Santé 36h hubs (converted to hyperglide) so I'd like to get some new wheels built. I've measured and calculated that if I run 650b rims, that 38c tyres will fit with 2mm clearance on the chainstays, and 47-57mm drop brakes will fit fine too. I could also get a framebuilder to add some mudguard eyelets. I appreciate this is an expensive way of making an audax/light-tour bike, but I've been searching for a 64x58 (or 62x56) light touring frame for 2-3 years and haven't found one yet!
Apologies for crap post-ride photo. Has a whiff of Grant Petersen about it.
