Jeff Lyon Lavecaise Custom All-Road In Progress

I have been working on a custom project for a few months with a local builder. Build is a steel all-road vibe with medium reach brakes for wide tire clearance (32-35ish). Steel fork. Light-weight simple components. Level top tube, skinny modern lightweight tubing. around 55cm square, but not quite. fit points provided by me, the rest to be decided by the builder.
Clear went on yesterday, its oh so close to being mine!

I was lucky enough to see it almost done:

The Color inspiration:

The bits:

More to follow as I get the frame and fork and start the build.
I'm excited for my first custom fit to me bike.

Noice! I love seeing a fun winter project come together like that. I hope you like it, but then quickly tire of it, because those dimensions look spot on for me, and I have always wanted a red bike:~)

No, seriously congrats and thanks for sharing a peek.

Im going to wait till there is more light and im less tired tomorrow to continue the build. Mockup was fun though, need to swap stems with The Waterford, this 3T is too bulky. length looks good, fit points look pretty spot on, brakes reach right, etc etc. finish a mockup tomorrow, take it to Jeff to cut the steerer, and ride the ship out of it
