For this round of Stanyans we went with a threaded 1"steerer fork, not just because "that's what vintage road bike used" but it just looks better with lugged frames. Lugs limit how angled your top tube can be, so if we used a 1-1/8 threadless set up most of us would need to run a tall headset spacer stack. The original Stanyan we launched in 2008 was threadless.
We ditched the polished lugs for color schemes that fit right into the scene of vintage jerseys and dusty roads. The main thing that's not period correct is the 130mm rear hub spacing, since it is hard to find quality freewheels these days. You can run an 11-speed cassette, if you want.
The Stanyan '18 is available now. ...More than enough time for you to source those old parts and build your perfect "heroic bike" for next year's event.
