Oldham rides for the Hope Factory Racing team, so it’s no surprise to see the company’s products adorn his machine.
Most notable is the hydraulic disc brake set-up, which uses Hope levers on the tops as well as SRAM hydraulic brake levers. Stopping power is provided by Hope’s RX4 calipers.
The wheels spin on Hope hubs, with Schwalbe G-One cyclocross tyres on the rims. The rubber is an interesting choice, as Schwalbe originally designed the G-One for dry, gravel conditions and so they lack the deeper tread of what is perceived as a traditional ‘cross tyre.
The single chainring set-up is based on SRAM Force CX1 with a Hope RX crankset, which uses an 11-speed wide-range cassette.
The frame and fork are stock Addict CX models, which are constructed out of carbon-fibre and have a reputation as being one of the lightest disc-brake specific framesets on the market.
Shimano XTR SPD pedals, Hope seat post, Deda stem and Ritchey bars complete the race-winning package.
Oldham has taped on a CO2 tube inflator to the back of the seatpost, with a spare CO2 cartridge wrapped in lagging and taped to the underside of the stem.
The bike’s top tube features a sticker bearing the legend “In loving memory. #RideForCharlie” to remember Charlie Craig, the promising young cyclocross star who died in January.
