Firefly 861 All road, build pics up!

My first foray into disc territory. This frameset morphed quote a bit in design and intent. Will be built with 12 Speed Super Record EPS and Bora One Tubulars.

Enjoy and watch for build picks.

Wow. I continue to be impressed by the work out there in Boston.

I can't wait to see it fully built!

Nice combination of paint and titanium. Can't wait to see it in completed form. Great start of a Firefly.

Nice Stephen. Very clean and crisp and spelling out TITANIUM in the paint is a neat old-school touch imho. Should be a sharp, direct ride with those big tubes all the way around, yet I imagine it will take fat enough tires to mellow it out some.

Glad you picked up on the old school Titanium graphic. It should be plenty stiff for me, yet still ride like ti.

That is great looking, and matches your Zanc's very well.

Terrible Photo

Here is a very poor photo of the frame with fork.

Nice color choice and wonderfully tasteful graphics. Very eager to see the full build! Congrats.

edit: just caught the inside of the fork blades. Subtle and cool! I'm a sucker for that; I had it on my radar screen but kinda let it slip off when we did the graphic design for my Alliance disc ti allroad.
