Dream Construct: Masi Incanto Ti Allroad/Gravel

Nicely, right here we’re, the Masi Bicycles Incanto Ti dream construct is completed and able to experience. Unsure when you keep in mind, however again in late September, I had an concept to start out a dream-build venture. As a Model Ambassador for Masi Bicycles, I reached out and requested the brand new Incanto Ti frameset to make use of because the platform for this construct.

The Incanto Ti is Masi’s titanium gravel/allroad providing. The bike comes full with a full Campy Ekar groupset, or as a frameset with a carbon Brunello gravel fork, headset, seat collar, and titanium seat submit. The frameset proved to be the right canvas to “paint” my masterpiece of a “dream construct”. And fortunate you, you get to examine it right here on Bikerumor.

The concept for the dream construct was to make use of some componentry which may not be thought of by most when doing a construct like this…like, say mechanical brakes and a mullet drive practice. After which experience it and overview the components on this software.

For the final couple o’ months, I reached out to manufacturers to take part within the construct and gathered some superior components from some nice manufacturers. I believe it turned out wonderful!

The construct has been completed for a number of days, and I’ve already squeaked out roughly 55+ miles on it thus far… it rides nice!

The Plan

I had a plan. And a few standards I wished to fulfill. I wished to:

  1. Attempt to preserve the entire bike (with pedals) below 20 lbs.
  2. Have the ability to use my favourite mechanical disc brakes.
  3. Construct utilizing zero carbon fiber components (aside from the fork).
  4. Use 700c wheels.
  5. Be snug for lengthy days within the saddle.
  6. Construct a gravel bike with a mullet drive practice (drop bar shifters = enterprise up entrance, and mountain bike gearing = social gathering within the rear).
  7. Run (at the very least) a entrance dynamo gentle.

Nicely, I nailed primary! I weighed it… with pedals, the empty high tube bag, and the pc mount and it weighed in at 19.2 kilos. I used to be actually happy with that, contemplating it’s a 58cm body, however I then realized that I left the device roll on the bike once I weighed it, so now I’m actually stoked!

The device roll had a CO2 cartridge, the Spurcycle Ti device equipment, A DynaPlug, and Wolf Tooth Pack Pliers. I haven’t weighed the bike once more, however I’m certain with out the device roll mounted, it’ll drop barely under the 19 kilos mark, I couldn’t ask for extra because the completed weight exceeds any/all of my expectations.

Let’s go over the components listing.

The Components

I made a decision that I’m simply going to be concerning the components used for the construct right here, exhibiting you the way they appear on the completed product. I might be doing a deep dive into all of those parts as I experience and overview all of them.

OK, let’s get began!

The Crankset

5DEV Prototype gravel crank and spindle.

Positioned in San Diego, 5DEV was solely an hour or so away from the place I’m positioned. So, after speaking to Will Talbott we determined it will be cool to drive down and watch these prototype Gravel Cranks get lower on the CNC machine for me whereas I waited. These cranks use the SRAM 8-bolt mounting and weigh in at 20-30 grams lighter than their Path/Enduro cranks.


Shimano XTR PD9000 pedals.

I selected the Shimano XTR pedals as a result of, for my part, they’re the very best pedals on the market. I nonetheless use the Shimano PD747 on my mountain bike and they’re 20 years outdated with zero signal of quitting. The brand new XTR pedals have good mud clearance, are light-weight and look to be simply as bombproof as they’ve all the time been.

To me, there was just one pedal selection for this construct.

Put in

The BBInfinate BB86-PF-RD backside bracket is a one-piece aluminum-bodied backside bracket. I had by no means put in a press match BB86 backside bracket earlier than. Press becoming the aluminum right into a titanium shell was a bit daunting, however they despatched alongside their Grasp Instrument Set. That, with nice directions, made it fairly straightforward. And the cranks spin like buttah!

The Rear Cassette

In preserving in step with aim quantity 6 of this construct,  I selected to run full mountain bike gearing for this construct, and in my expertise (I’ve been working these on my mountain bikes for a number of years), there isn’t a beating the great ol’ Shimano 11-46 XT M8000 cassette.

I’ll say, that for some motive, I’m not liking the 9-tooth bounce from the 37t to the 46t. It’s a non-issue on my mountain bike. However, it is perhaps an excessive amount of for this bike. I would swap to an equal cassette that has a extra even step to the bailout gear. I would even simply run the 11-42 XT M8000 cassette, and name it a day.

The Rear Derailleur

Nonetheless staying with aim quantity 6, I selected the long-lasting Shimano XTR M9000, medium cage, rear derailleur.

I received’t be racing the bike, however preserving in step with aim number one, I used to be pinching grams, and at 222 grams, the XTR matches the invoice and was notably feathery in my hand.

The Brake rotors

Including an extra splash of blue highlights down on the hub space, I selected to make use of the Hope Expertise Highway 6-Bolt floating rotors. 160mm on each entrance and rear. I used to be somewhat anxious as I had heard clearance on the Klampers is perhaps a problem with the rivets contacting the brake’s physique. However, Travis at Paul mentioned which will’ve been a problem with tremendous early iterations of the Paul Klampers, however they’ve remedied that some time again.

They appear nice!

The Dynamo Gentle

The Instrument Roll

The Instrument Saddle Roll was offered by Roadrunner Luggage out of Los Angeles. I might be protecting what’s going into this device roll within the overview. I’m figuring out some titles for the overview:

  1. “What’s in my Roll?”

  3. “Rollio, Pollio”
  4. “That is How I Roll”

It’s a vital a part of your cockpit, particularly when you experience multi-user trails. It’s higher than yelling “LEFT” at everybody. It’s not obnoxious, however as a substitute, nice to the ears and loud sufficient to penetrate most headphones. I don’t experience my bike with out one, I’ve one on each single certainly one of my bikes.

It’s made within the USA and has a assure for all times.

The Deal with Bar Bag

The handlebar bag is the Burrito Supreme Handlebar Bag by Roadrunner Luggage. I’ve but to make use of it, but it surely certain seems good on the bike, plus it’s matchy-matchy with the Instrument Saddle Roll.

The Tires

I might be reviewing and evaluating two units of tires on this bike. The Ultradynamico Rosé Race within the 700×42?? would be the first one up and mounted. To this point it rides fairly properly. The second is the Rene Herse Hurricane Ridge Endurance casing in 700×42. I might be swapping these in after placing a number of hundy on the Ultras.
