Really happy with how this one turned out. Definitely the coolest frame I have ever had, the tubing is awesome, the welds are amazing, the custom topper is crazy. Aero tubing on DT and ST. I love the color as well.

Still have not taken it out for a long ride, I just received the pedals and feeling a bit sick this week but its warming up and I will have plenty of time. So far, couple rides round the block and it rides pretty amazing.


16.9 lbs which is not too shabby for a steel bike.

- Campagnolo Chorus 2015
- Reynolds Attack Wheelset
- EE brakes
- Richey WCS Carbon Curve bars
- Richey WCS 4Axis 110mm stem
- Specialized Power Expert
- Chris King Headset
- Dura Ace 9100 Pedals
- Arundel Mandible Cages
- Vittoria Rubino Pro Speed 25mm Tires
- Ultegra 11-28 Cassette

Really sharp!

- The rear brake routing
- The beefy chain stays juxtaposed against the delicate wishbone seat stays
- The custom topper

Cool bike. Enjoy the ride.

Wow! The dancing banana I wanted to post would not fit on the page. Putting the hammer down on this one has to be a riot. Congrats!

thanks guys. The brake routing is cool for sure, however you have to use nokon cables, took a while to figure out the optimal amount of links but now it works great.

So good!

He started on my frame yesterday... After my 29er, I'm thinking of asking for an All Road style build.

Now this is a bike that you own and ride the ****e out of, but you keep prominently displayed in your house. Love it. As much as say a Weigle? maybe....just maybe.
