Fedaia

After going through multiple color options, this owner decided on RAL5022/5012. Being a Monk, he wanted something that reminded him of the sky.

This steel beauty in a classic design.

Nice looking frame set. So much for the vow of poverty.

Thank you!

While I'm not privy to what determines that vow, his level of poverty is definitely different than mine, as he was a former CEO and member at Augusta National.

I'm late to post, but the white frame with dots is a stunner!

Thank you for sharing.

I love and miss the beauty/art in the lugs of old steel bikes. You've really brought that back in a new way!

Thanks for looking!

The steel Fedaia turned out nice with Chorus. Just waiting on a Zonda wheelset before final delivery.

Customer opted for a 172.5/34-50 crank with an 11-32
Cockpit is from 3T- Apto stem, Superergo bars, and Zero 25 post.
Supacaz bar tape
Zonda's will sport Pirelli tyres and Vittoria tubes.

Great build and I think you need to do a video on how to do a tape job. Perfect!

Very kind of you to say!

I've had plenty of practice, but this Supacaz tape is next level and easy to wrap bars with. Admitting using for the first time, I'm a believer, and will be using again for sure.

One thing of note.....this tape is grippy/sticky, however, I like

The grippy/sticky does wear off with use...but it's fine broken in too. BTW, the bike looks stunning.
