Few people have been asking about the build for my bike. Simple enough, but solid, that was my aim. Comes in light enough, mainly, it rolls fast and can take a beating.

I’ve a lot of thanks to give to the folks at both Keep Pedalling and Bryan at Raleigh UK for sorting me out without destroying my bank balance. I was happy to have my Ti Salsa Fargo for the Divide….but there was no way I could turn down an opportunity for a Cutthroat – Believe the Hype.
