    Commuter Bike -Velo Orange Polyvalent Frame Build

    Just finished the last bits on my personal daily commuter, based on the 60cm Velo Orange Polyvalent MK2 Frameset.

    I know that this is typically a 650B wheel frame that takes up to 55c tires; but my 700c wheels w/ 35c tires are the same circumference, so that is how I decided to go. Paul Comp's Motolite brakes span the difference between 650B and 700C canti posts easily. Other than those I used my favorite 9sp Campagnolo Ergo parts, and 180mm Dura-Ace crankset. "Fred" height Nitto Techtronic stem give me the upright riding position with drop bars that I prefer for commuting.
