On the Masi Bicycles web site, it states that the Incanto body has “semi-internal cable routing with customized configurations for 1x, 2x, or dropper put up routing. The entire Campy EKAR group that’s spec’d on the whole bike runs a single 40t entrance chainring. However it’s outfitted to run a entrance double if wanted.

The entire Incanto comes with 40mm tires, and based on the web site, the Incanto body can match a 700c x 45mm tire max. It seemed prefer it might match an even bigger tire, so I spoke with the Product Supervisor for the Incanto, and he mentioned there may be truly room for an even bigger tire… he didn’t say how a lot larger, he simply mentioned “room for extra”. How a lot tire and dust clearance will seemingly differ based mostly on tire development and inside rim width.
