Yes, it's the same MAX frame I've had for several years - a keeper, as it were. In the summer this bike generally wears 27mm (30mm, really) Challenge Parigi-Roubaix tires but the skinny Paves and fenders suit it well in our drearier Seattle months. This bike has a nice bomb-proof feel to it without feeling heavy - it seems to shrug off the all the crappy pot-holed roads I can aim it down. If I was actually racing a MAX frame with Enve fork would likely be my pick. The bars have since been rotated down in the interests of good taste.
