Croix de Fer………rubbish. I’ve got a (insert name of random cross bike here) that I bought from a German mail order company/with my semi-pro team discount/the US without informing HMRC/a Chineese bloke on ebay (delete as appropriate) and it only cost me (insert cost of Croix de Fer less 40%).
There, is that a better STW answer.Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber
Great spec change IMO, makes the bike even more appealing! Although I also prefer it in white. Sounds like they’re finally admitting the CdF is actually a commuter/tourer rather than a CX bike, especially with that Fugio (which looks ace) just around the corner.Posted 4 years agoflipiddyMember
Thanks folks. I actually plumped for a 2013 model from my lbs as they had it in stock and in my size. They are hard to come by at the moment.
I’ve got some trips coming up that I don’t fancy being messed up by potential stock shortages come the new model.
Alb = Albert perchance? 😉
Edit – I like the older white, but I’m definitely coming around to the black too. Looks understated and classy.Posted 4 years ago
