“Allaban”- Gaelic for “wandering”.
This Winter randonee style frame was built for longer rides and general adventuring ranging from daily commutes to unloaded sporting rides, audax events and weekend tours.
The Allaban is made from a builder select tube set joined with smooth and seamless fillet brazed joinery. The classic construction is paired with a modern SRAM Force mechanical set up, Cane Creek headset, Thomson post and Paul Racer brakes. The H Plus Son Archtype rims are laced to White Industry T11 hubs and Challenge rubber. The custom Winter stem features an integrated cable hanger and bell mount. Both the stem and fenders were powder coated a satin black by Custom Powder works that beautifully accents the component colors and plays off the rich racing green wet paint by Keith Anderson. The gold frame accents are also set off by the brass Crane bell. The Winter front and rear racks are finished in a soft brushed chrome.
