Dang,
That is a beaut!

Every time I see a new Zank that's one more closer to my turn in the que!

Seriously tho, that's going to be killer. Color and build?

The pronto will be pried from my cold dead fingers, likely the same to be said of the attack. I need to sell my caad9 (to fund a track bike?) but otherwise this purchase should make “N” as far as Road bikes are concerned.

It'll be the enve 2.0 carried over from the bedford, then the corsa, then the moots...

Oh, I suppose I should reveal my favorite part (and only design input) of this frame I've always had a thing for hourglass stays -- whether they be on a speedvagen, or a caad9, or whatever.. so this whole thing started with an email to Mike about whether or not he'd ever done swoopy stays, and whether or not he'd consider it. He built a new bending die and I think did a wonderful job

Nice. I had the S-bend seatstays on mine... those look sexier though. I wonder if the different shape actually affects ride quality or it just purely aesthetics.

So far I've only been out for a shake down and a ride after getting off a red-eye (resulting in a flat, a bad spare tube, a walk, a pickup, and still suffering from tubes that aren't holding after installation..... ugh!)

but I wanted to share some pictures! You guys know I struggled with color for so long, trying to use some pale pink CK bits, but in the end, I figured I'd just let it rip and go balls to the wall...

Ghosted decals are way cool. Not sure about the pepto color...

Most likely my size though!

i wanted "obnoxiously pink" -- if zank's guys would have gone brighter/more fluorescent I would have gone with it, but I'm very happy how it turned out.

The matte clear decals may stay or may go -- due to the fact that they're a clear decal, the adhesive kind of shows through giving it a bit of an un-polished look. I still like it, but find myself rubbing the decals down to smooth out the appearance.
