Set up for cross.
Beefy tires. My studded tire fits easily.
Road bike configuration
On the left is the stock Oval wheelset with deep rim and cross tire. On the right is my Ksyrium Elite wheel and road tire.
Lots of clearance around the seat stay allows for a fender and easy cleaning.
From below...no cables in sight!
Derailleur cables and rear brake cable run across the top tube, which keeps them gunk-free. Great news for winter cycling.
Plenty of clearance near the bottom bracket.
