This may not fit with the chrome and vintage inspiration of this particular forum... But it's well appointed with intent for a special appreciation of beauty.

Enjoy,
Greg

I ordered the frame from China. The buying process was easier than developing a TT bike with my local Trek dealer.

All-inclusive, it probably cost about the same as a stock Trek 9.5. the Trek would have needed expensive mods to make it look as desired (paint, extensions, cassette, saddle, wheels, crank). Also, the ETA on the Trek frame and parts was longer than the Chinese counterpart...

Performance is great. Although, the cable routing for the back brake is difficult and the brake pad may rub if it's not set up with precision.

Is there no better option for the speed sensor? Looks so out of place on such a sleek/stealth bike.

At least get some black zip ties?

Or something that's GPS speed. Also Schwinn branded computer makes me think of Kmart.

Great looking bike. I was considering giving the OP flack for the speed sensor too, but you guys have covered it. :o

Haha, apt comments guys. I have a sleek VDO sensor, but the battery was dead at the time of this picture so I threw on the Shwinn computer... It's pretty good, the screen is huge, but it does look cheap!

Really nice set up. The tyres look too wide though; some narrower ones would gain you a bit more speed.

Nice job!

Which front brakes are you using? Did they come with the frame or did you do the integration work?

+1 on this or silicone it in place and ditch the zipp ties.
