Firefly 805

I'm too excited not to share this!

It was inspired by Jan's FF. I should have this by this week and I'm already scheming of places to take this bike.

The build parts:

Firefly frame, stem, post obviously
Fork is made by Eric from Winter Bicycles - flat mount, internal cable and internal dynamo wiring. I might get a rack somewhere down the line so I had him put some mounts as well as mounts for water bottle cage or those King anything cage.
Rims are 26" by Stans (forget which model).
Front hub is SON delux and rear is White Industries.
Tires are Compass Rat Trap Pass.
Fenders are Honjo Flat 65 - they're made for 650b, unfortunately, so the fender line is a work in progress. I think re-radiusing them is impossible since they are flat.
Handlebars are Easton gravel bars - cheap aluminum ones. I like they have a very subtle flair.
Saddle and handlebar tape are Rapha because they look nice and I got them for free =)
Shifters, RD, cassette (10-42) are SRAM
Crankset (42t), headset are White Industries as well. I got black because originally I was going to be boring like my previous Firefly 189 and Firefly 612, but last minute I decided to go all out and add some color.
