That is an exquisite bike.

Alex, you should consider starting a thread in "The Showcase" subforum: http://forums.thepaceline.net/forumdisplay.php?f=21. This subforum is mainly meant for customers, not builders.

Alex, very nice lugwork. What's the geometry and tube spec? Do you do your own paint? Did you make the rack, too? The bike looks great!

Thank you! Tubing is Columbus, OS. Geometry is specific to the customer based on his fit, handling and comfort criteria. Rack is purchased but slightly modified. Paintwork I cannot take credit for; I work with an excellent local painter.

Thanks again.

That looks beautiful.

Can I ask what is the rear light? I like the paint on it to match the bike.

Looks like the Boulder unit.

The lug and paint work on this bike are so nice. Interesting that the buyer spec'd such a narrow max tire with all the nice, fat rubber available today.

I'm curious about the fork crown. It looks like a segmented fork with faux lug overlays. Whatever it is it's cool.
