Chris is a man that values comfort, but didn’t want to be left behind on our group road rides..
The straggler fits the bill!
This is a 700c Straggler frame built with 27.5 wheels and 47c tyres, giving us a rolling diameter equal to a 700x 28c.
Adding the extra volume of rubber means this bike feels like floating on a cloud, while eating potholes for breakfast.
The WTB Horizon tyres work amazingly well on gravel too! until the winter, when a little more tread will help and a move to the WTB ‘Byway’ would make sense.
My Favourite touch is the stem stacker bottle opener, a feature taken from Chris’s previous bikes, that see’s a fair bit of use.
