Aluminum single speed CX frame for bay area shop owner
I was lucky to have one pair of Ahrens slider dropout bodies in stock to build this frame. The weight is not bad- 3 lb. 8 oz. for a frame with some hefty hardware in the rear triangle. This frame will be raced quite a bit.
The top tube is my very last NOS US made Easton elite 34.8 diameter tube. I used to have boxes of these tubes but they are now totally extinct, at least in this size. The rest of the frame is Dedaccai 7000 series.
The seat stays are some s-bend Nova ones that I am using for the first time. The are pretty nicely bent and are stout enough for the hard use this frame will see.
