A "cyclocross/adventure/road/gravel/touring" bike with Shimano hydraulic brakes and 105 all round. Well specced and very well made. In just under the cycle-to-work scheme limit. This is the top spec they do in steel.

Not a light bike, but well made and it doesn't feel heavy on the road. Mine turned up yesterday, and I'm very pleased.

Only available in Medium, Small and XS, so if you're 6 foot you're out of luck.

"Reduced from £1700", but the 2017 model is only £1500 RRP with near identical spec.

Put some SKS longboard mudguards on this and you've got a winter road bike that'll take anything thrown at it

absolute quality bike

I have the tiagra version, same frame. Actually it is my second... it's a superb go-anywhere, do anything bike. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Well worth £1500, for a grand you're stealing it.

Great price for a fantastic bike

What colour is root beer?

Its kind of a dark matt brown, with light blue highlights.

Just bought the De Fer 10 and some SKS raceblades, but they don't fit. Do the longboard mudguards fit without any alterations? Thanks in advance

You don't say exactly why the raceblades won't fit. Nor which tyres you have on. I am the OP, and on the 2016 CDF30 the crud products roadracer mk3 fit without issues with the original 35mm tyres. They are roughly the limit for those mudguards, and the person behind you will still get a little sidespray from the wideness of the tyres, otherwise they're pretty good with careful fitment (and super easy to remove later). I got mine from Merlin just before Christmas at 31 pounds something.

All you need is a longer 35mm bolt and a 20mm spacer so the front stays can clear the disk brake caliper

Thank you for taking the time to come back to me. I am very new to this biking lark, so please excuse my ignorance. No change to set up, so still have 35 mm tyres on bike. The raceblades are sks raceblade 700c 18-23.

I presume I have bought to small. What size do I need?

Looks like CardboardCutout has an answer for you. Does it? My friend has some raceblades, and I couldn't see why they wouldn't fit. Is it the front or back. All mudguards seem to be a pain in some way or other.
I think 18-23 means for skinnier tyres I thing, but should "fit" even if not covering the tyres completely.

Just bought one of these, can't believe theyre still in stock at this price. The groupset with brakes and rotors alone is nearly £600 on the best deal.
