Hi Dale, and list:

I like the looks of that Holdsworth a lot, but I am partial to Holdsworths, as their importer (Rick Kanter at Security Bicycle Accessories) gave me one back in 1984 as my first sponsored bike (for an SF to LA cycling record).

Other than the carbon fork, and the 11-speed drivetrain, what don't you like about it? Not enough tire clearance? I am crazily tempted to get one, but I shouldn't say that's crazy as I am sure my collection of 17 bikes is meager in size and scope compared to my esteemed CR brethren.

BTW, there's a shot of me with my 1984 Holdsworth in this Rough Riding report:
