Rob Knows what he likes.. Classic style, comfort and speed.
The Velo Orange Passhunter frame ticked the boxes, geometry that would suit fast paced, long distance road rides, clearance for tyres that would be capable of blasting gravel all day long too.
We decided to go for a 650b wheel set on the build, allowing more tyre clearance and a snappier feel. The BB dropped a touch, which would only aid road handling.
Rob blasted straight down to Cornwall with ‘Clementine’ and put in about 200 miles as a ‘shakedown ride’ and we hear she performed beautifully!
