Like this one quite a bit - Firefly top-shelf product that is a change of pace from the steady stream of anno. Also psyched to see a flat bar + fat tire Firefly no matter how fat the tires!

Looks inspired by “Ironman” Stewart’s Toyota race truck!

Also, does 1x Ekar make for a good mech road group? Seems I'm seeing this a fair amount on your IG feed. If I'm not mistaken.

Where is the upper shift cable stop on the non-drive side?...on the head tube or downtube? Would love to see that side....

Incredible bike build, the anodizing and Ekar/Shamal combo looks great!

If you want a top tube bag on there we will make it happen. Haven't had a request for one on a Ti-Carbon bike so we haven't developed an elegant solution yet, but when/if the time comes we will do it.

EKAR seems great! The brakes are amazing. The shifting is classic campy.
