At Podia there has been a sombre mood after we were unable to attend this year’s Crosstoberfest, organised by Ken Bloomer of Crema Cycles. To cheer us up we decided to post some images of his very own Crema Road.
A blend of True Temper and Columbus steel tubing this frame has a very refined and modern look. A gentle slope in the top tube as well as the oversized head tube keep it up to date along with the Chartreuse paintwork with only the subtlest of Crema branding.
The understated and sleek black on black ENVE cockpit and Fabric ALM saddle keep it low-key yet rich. The surprise for us is that the frame has enough clearance to mount the Challenge Parix-Roubaix 28mm tires on the ENVE SES 4.5’s.
Apologies to Ken for shooting his bike with chain in the little ring, the paint on the bike must have distracted us from the job in hand!
