How will you set up your Romax Ti?
Race ‘Cross ?
Absolutely. Build it light, with 700x33c tires of your choice, like the Challenge Baby Limus, or Grifo Pro. A 1x setup using SRAM is easy, or customize your setup using Shimano Di2 with an XT rear derailleur, or Mechanical with the new Ultegra clutched rear derailleur. (No dedicated left brake lever only from Shimano (yet)). Another option, use TRP Hylex hydraulic brakes with Shimano Di2, using climbing buttons, or their HylexDi2 Adapter kit.
Road Plus ?
Sure, (Road+ could swap with the ‘Gravel’ moniker) WTB now has 4 versions of their awesome Road Plus tires in 650x47c sizes that fit the Romax Ti frame, and because the overall diameter is similar to a 700x33 tire, the handling and BB height are not affected. Get the HorizonTCS and run them tubeless, between 32-42PSI depending on the surface you’re riding. For more aggressive treads on the same awesome casing as the Horizon, check out the Byway,Venture, or Sendero.
For gearing suggestions, I like the new ‘Adventure cranks’ (30/46T), but using AbsoluteBlack oval rings on a Shimano Ultegra R8000 crank.
What a dumb moniker for a style of bike! But we have to differentiate it from a ‘Cross bike, so ‘Gravel’ it is. Build it 1x with a 42T ring and a 11-46T cassette, or 2x, like the Road+ setup described above. On the Romax Ti frame, you can fit 700 x 42c tires. My feeling is that if you want to go much bigger than that, there would be compromises on the other end of tires sizes, and you’d be better off on a 29’er mountain bike, or a Brodie Elan, or Elan Vital
Sure. The Romax has fender and rack mounts and is comfortable for long distance riding. It is plenty strong enough to carry all year gear, but for a long self sufficient tour, the chainstays are probably a bit short, and one of the Brodie Elans would be better suited.
Of course. You can build it light, with standard road gearing and road tires and stick to the pavement without compromise. I like a compact crank, 34/50T with an 11-28T cassette, and Michelin Endurance Pro-4 28c tires.
