Early this year I took delivery of my very own Stinner steel road bike, I enjoyed the whole experience dealing with Aaron, Gary and the guys there I decided I needed another! I had been riding a bmc cx01, which was an amazing bike, but just didn’t fit me well enough.
So here we are, my custom Stinner Ti thru axle disc cx bike! I knew what I wanted in terms of geo and sizing but this time round I had the hardest time deciding on colour! I didnt wan’t all raw Ti, so ended up going with a half raw half painted orange and blue ( a la gulf porsche colours).
It’s pouring rain here so I’ve only ridden it around the driveway and it looks like I’m going to love this one as much if not more than my road bike!
Specs and stuff
Stinner Ti thru axle disc cross frame
enve cross fork
Sram Force CX1 groupset
BB7 SL calipers with swissstop pads
Wolf Tooth 40T direct mount chanring
Paul chain guide thingy
Zipp course 30 disc wheels with maxxis overdrive tyres for commuting
Prologo scratch2 seat
Total banger. Paint is a success.
I see that you have a Paul chain guide thingy even though you have a NW chainring. I use a NW chainring too but without a chain guide, and have never dropped a chain until yesterday. It came as a bit of a surprise, now I think I might try and get one of those chain guides. Any good alternatives to dear Paul?
