This was made for nobody at all. it was a display frame at Mellow Johnnys or some such. it is stock 54.5 sizing according to their geo charts. so yeah, what were we talking about again? tires. lets talk about tires

There is something mystical about this bike - it is so finely made and minimalist and monotone. It has an architectural quality about it with the 'oddly' sculpted lugs and fittings and muted finish.

I cant get over how sleek it is and I bet it rides beautifully. I am not into mixed material bikes for some reason, but this one seems perfect. It doesn't hurt that its drenched in Campy!

Oooh, those Chorus 4-arm cranks. I forgot about them - must look away!!

those new campy cranks looked great on this bike but I think 5 arm wins on this one.

Its not just the bike but MZ knows how to build em well.

I agree, the 5 arm in the last picture with the Hell of the North tires looks better than the 4-arm from early on. They both look good, but the most recent setup is more svelte in appearance.

It’s so easy to want to bling out a neutrally colored bike with anodized hubs or some flashy bar tape, but avoiding that here lets the shapes speak for themselves. Architectural is an apt description.

Chapeau, nice bike.

Mavic RSys SLR with Sworks Hell of the North 28mm tubulars. these things are grippy. Talk about confidence in the wet, Exalith and mad grip, im set! If they made this same tire in 30-38mm tubeless or clincher sizes they would rule the gravel market tomorrow. I like them that much.
My MO when I stumble into new pics Matt's posted...

Every time I think it can't get any better, you go and find some little change to raise it one more notch...well done sir!

The bike accolades are definitely deserved but nobody has mentioned on how you
are killing it with these background choices.
