My current build is a one off special for Pip Adkins of Le Sportif. Pip rides a sportif pretty much every weekend, he has some nice carbon action but for the winter he wanted a fast steel bike with fitted mudguards that looks the part. Columbus spirit tubes to keep the weight down and to make for a nice magic carpet ride feeling. Taking Pips body dimensions and current bike geometry and tweaking it to make room for some mudguards. This is the final design.:
