Michael’s Alfine Di2 commuter

Custom build, optimised for touring and commuting duties. The bike was built around the new Shimano Alfine Di2 11 speed groupset, which brings precise, low maintenance electric signal shifting to the bomb proof Alfine hub. Paragon machine works sliding drop outs were used to provide chain tension adjustment for the hub, whilst allowing the use of mudguards, without the need for removing them whenever the rear wheel is taken out, the bane of track-ended, mudguarded frames.
