Amazing builds Mr. Danger!

Thank you for sharing with us. Another great example of Nao's fine work!

Very nice Tomii FS!



William

PS: You might want to go a little lighter on the helium the next time you pump up those tires.

Yup. Nao uses only the lightest steels and brass/silver!

Actually, its the Ciamillo Zero-G brake calipers that really help with the buoyancy. I also have a set of Negative-G calipers on my Litespeed which of course means that I have to tie that down when I get off.

In all seriousness, I had fun with this photoshoot.

I've looked over this thread too many times to count. Someday I'll have Nao build me a frame.

For now though, I'm starting with a custom stem. I've been nothing but impressed with Nao and his work. He's been excellent to work with.

As much as I love looking at it in the metal, the next step is paint

Photos of the finished custom stem

The stem is 110mm long with a 31.8mm handlebar clamp and sized for a 25.4mm steerer tube, and incorporates 20mm worth of spacers into the stem. Thus no more shim and no more spacers.
