Redline Conquest Pro

Frame Redline Conquest Pro – Aluminum
Size 60 cm
Fork Redline – Aluminum
  • Avid mechanical disc brakes (essential for wet weather riding)
  • 180 mm Suntour XC Pro cranks
  • Phil Wood BB
  • cobbled together Shimano drivetrain
Gears 36/50
Weight 25 lb.

This is my rain bike.

Also known as the 'winter' bike or the 'dedicated fender' bike or the 'randonneuring' bike. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time on this than my nice road bike... probably true as we have our share of damp weather in Seattle.

Up until December 2010 my rain bike was an old Bianchi Volpe but it died a quiet death.
