Firefly All-Road (FF739)
 
Just joined the forum - thanks for the add!

Took delivery of this in March - so much love for it so far. Built up with eTap (which has been great, despite the abuses I've put it through so far) and two wheelsets (650b Belgium+ and 700c ENVE SES AR). Can't say enough good things about the team at Firefly - they were patient with my questions, anno ideas and last-minute request to add top-tube bosses. Super-happy with the bike. A few pics below - full gallery here and my Instagram has some more pics of it in action (and some other bikes!).

Direct mount top tube bags. Hate Velcro straps rubbing the inside of my chunky legs!

Amazing machine, every Firefly is a work of art, but this one is special.

I dig the Stanton hardtail too.

So great. Definitely one of the more complex and cool ano jobs on a Firefly.

The ano is crazy looking, definitely need more close ups.

Incredible. Firefly really pushes the boundary of finishing details. It looks like an ice-blue topographic map. What was the inspiration/whose idea was it?

The finish details are incredible. What cassette are you using?

Ultimately my direction - we went back and forth on what might work. Settled on the concept below. Ellen used a technique they hadn't tried before where she used nail varnish to mask the areas instead of strips of nylon. Lots of work on her part that really paid off IMO.

Just a SRAM 1070 11-32 on both wheelsets.

Interesting.

The whole look seemed very Leni Fried inspired to me.

Really cool stuff. Great bike. Enjoy!
