cross/allroad frames

I’m about to do a run of lugged cyclocross/all-road frames and have some capacity to run a few extra of each size to be generally available.

  • Columbus Zona tubing*
  • S-bend stays
  • Oversize tubeset

    • 1 1/8 steerer
    • 31.8 toptube
    • 35mm downtube
    • 31.8mm seattube
  • Paragon disk dropouts (disk between stays, see pic below), inc spare hanger.
  • 68mm BB shell
  • 135mm rear spacing
  • Designed for ~400mm fork**
  • rack and mudguard mounts
  • 2 sets h20 bosses
  • crud guard bosses
  • internal cable routing on top tube for brake
  • downtube gear cable routing
  • single colour ‘wet’ paint***

* Upgrade to Columbus Life for extra £100
** No fork included but I’ll build one for £125
*** Fancydancy paint available at extra cost

Cost £595. Delivery September. I don’t have many slots available for these so let me know ASAP if you’re interested by sending an email to: allroad@shandcycles.com.

All these will be handbuilt by me. Same attention to detail but building in batches allows me to run through my setup processes much faster to get frames out quicker. The lack of communication on sizing and geometry also frees up loads of time. This makes a cheaper frame. That’s good.

And yes I know cross bikes don’t need rack, bottle or mudguard mounts but this isn’t supposed to be a ‘pure’ cross bike. If you don’t want these, I’ll leave them off. For free.

And please don’t get your knickers all in a twist about disk brakes on a cross bike.

Here’s the geometry for the medium size, I’ve still to finalize the small and large. (pdf)

Here’s the dropouts, note the replaceable hanger.
