I dig the bike, though.
I'm building it with 47-57mm long reach calipers which should allow for 32s but we'll see. If the brake bridges aren't high enough it won't matter how much clearance the brakes have.

I don't think it'll be the bridge or fork crown. It'll be inside the caliper opening, at the top, on the front wheel. The clearance gets tighter, as the tire comes through the fork and caliper. Their site pic shows it really well. And, that's with a 28mm tire. You may try some stuff, at your LBS, before ordering/buying.

Hmmm...if you want vintage, why not just get the real deal? This one might just be worth shipping. Spend a little on a tune-up and some detail parts and off ya' go.

I saw that, Sunday. I'd love to have it, for a resto project.

Don't you laugh! But, I was looking at Ricardo's MB-1 and thinking about how that could be an uber-cool gravel bike. I went so far as to look for resto decals.

Here's mine:



another neato steel bike in my shed: Colnago Master Light



and our GT Peace 9r SS



Hey Mutt - at the bike shop where I work there's a GT Peace Tour that keeps getting marked down and I may snag it since SWMBO is inheriting my Marin beater tourer (via adverse possession). The GT Peace Tour is a neat little Reynolds bike--not a whole lot to it, just a straightforward Surly-esque bike. They seem to be around for not much coin. $699 clearance priced at our shop. It's not flashy but it keeps winking at me.

I'd rock that, in a heartbeat.

It keeps bugging me. Lots of flashy bikes at the shop, and that one just languishes with zero interest from customers. Every time I look at that GT, I know in my heart if I bought it I'd probably love it like a good friend.



Bar end shifters. Cool.

There's so much goodness there, but, 4 things hurt it:
1. Bar-end shifters
2. Fenders
3. Steel
4. Reasonable tires

Unfortunately, people (or the unkowing) go where the marketers tell them. It took me a while, too, to figure out that the above are all good things.

I think you should snag it. It'd probably be the best bicycling money you've spent.

I've been looking for an RB-1 for eons. Seems that when I have $$ I can't find em and when I can find em, I don't have $$

That's a cool practical bike! I'm not crazy about the blue wrap & seat. The seat reminds me of an 80s BMX! :cool
