Alex's Recovery Gift - A New Albion Bicycle

Vanessa won a New Albion Starling mixte frame in our contest with Momentum Magazine. She had it built up (by Seven Stars Cycles) for her wife Alex as a gift. Alex was diagnosed with thyroid cancer back in May. She had her thyroid removed in June and is recovering. We wish them both well.

New Albion Privateer Matching Forks

Optional matching forks are now available. While it is not hard at all to find black CX fork these days, we wanted to create a fork that best suits the original sport touring concept we had in mind when dreaming up the Privateer.
Cureved CrMo blades and 1-1/8" steerer. Lugged sloping crown. Fits 700c tires up to 41mm wide, cantis or V-brakes. Double eyelets at the dropouts. Mid-blade low rider pannier bosses. 50mm rake. 390mm axle to crown.
