Tim's Tom Stevens Cross Bike
is my newest bike. I sold my RB-1 (see Current Classic #75) this
spring and had Tom Stevens build a cross bike for me. Tom was great
fielding all my questions, taking measurements and being patient
while I sorted out the details. The frame measures 59cm C-C and
was comfortable from the first ride. I bought a second cross bike
from the local shop and took all the parts off that bike to put
on this bike thus the painted black theme.
stem, Tiagra shifters, Oryx cantis and 105 ders work great. I changed
out the crank for a FSA compact and will never ride a 130 crank
again. The Alex wheels are very wide (25mm) and when matched with
PanaracerÔs 32s are very plush.
ride this bike mostly on dirt roads and look forward to entering
my first cross races this fall. I cannot recommend Tom Stevens more
highly as his cost is very reasonable and his delivery time was
very short. Thanks for letting me post.
