This rider wanted an all-around road race bike built up with specific sizing that could take them on local and worldwide road rides and races. For the specific geometry sizing, we utilized the riders Bike Fit numbers so that the frame would fit perfectly. We basically created a frame with a reach of a typical small road frame size and a stack of a large. The rider also wanted a light and responsive frame so we went with a premium chromoly Columbus Spirit tubeset.
