It'll be a custom PMP- per post 22, the seat tube is 38mm, necessitating this topper.

FYI, the 46/36 cranksets are not that hard to come by (and probably cheaper than RSC)

absolutely mind boggling.

the stay/dropout transition looks awesome!
You and me both. I had to look up "friction stir smooth welding" and honestly, I'm not at all sure how you apply it to a bicycle frame.

The plan is for me to give the 53/39 back to Craig when the cross cranks are available via the distro again- it's a loaner from his personal stash. If for some reason I decide to stick with 53/39 then Craig will just order himself a new crank I think.

Why is this not built and being ridden already? Only 45 days until Ronde2016, you gotta get the kinks out.

Is that Jeff Huckleberry? Is he back at RSC? If it is, he's as good as there is. Mr. Meticulous.

Nice looking frame. The bike nerd in me says the panel on the downtube needs to be bigger or higher (toward the head tube), and the logo rotated up a little. Maybe its the pic, but the finish design just looks a little saggy or something, and it ain't coming from the actual frame.

As you might guess from my posts on this thread I am getting antsy not having the bike in my possession yet but it should be built soon and I'm really excited to get out there with it.
