Affinity 212: My "Casual" Road Bike

I have been itching for a new roadbike ever since I saw the Affinity 212 at Interbike last year. My goal was to put something together that was clean and classic yet simple, a go anywhere roadie. I have had some goodies stockpiled away, so while it may seem a bit chaotic, it is all very intentional. Here it is...

Drop Bars, Classic Regal saddle (Ti Rails), MKS pedals/clips/straps (atacs for longer rides)

The drivetrain is where it gets weird (awesome). Suntour XC Expert rear derailleur, 8 speed 11-30 cassette with a Campagnolo Centaur UT compact crankset. A nice versatile widerange double.

And yes, downtube friction shifters! Dia Compe/Rivendell with nice wratcheting action. Got the Velo-Orange Grand Cru sealed bearing chrome headset, very smooth.

Cockpit is Nitto Noodle bar, Cinelli stem and SRAM levers.

The sparkle in the paint is amazing in the sunlight. Nice work on this one Jason.

Looking forward to 70f weather tomorrow and a nice spin, who knows where I will end up, really doesnt matter. See you there.
