Damn, that is cool!! Crazy light. Love the straight lines of the frame, before Moots went all Pinarello on their tube shaping. I know the curved downtube serves its purpose but this version looks way better. Love it.

+1 to this. This bike looks sick with the straight lines. Nice build!!! This satisfies so many of the simple pleasures of nicely designed frames for me. Straight tubes (no curved DT or TT), sliders, TT routed cables to non-chain stay mounted brake....even clocked head tube badge fasteners!

Watch out for that Raceface BB. I have heard they are not good, and just installed one a parts build bike because I didn't want to spend the cash—first thought after installing it was that I will most likely regret it, but we will see.

Dang that's sharp! I'll say same - the straight lines make that one clean machine. Enjoy the ride!

Nice though I wish your ride report were a little less wordy and pedantic

Sooooo good!
I just mailed out the Cielo SS yesterday and this gives me bad ideas....

Love the beefy seat stays and simple lines.

Now sporting the proper rear thru axle from Paragon Machine Works rather than the DT RWS version that stuck out a bit too much for my liking.

Also, snagged a nice deal on a Kogel BSA30 BB to replace the RaceFace Cinch. Feels good to have all 3 bikes running Kogel BBs again.

PICS!

Top cap touch, likely next up some SRAM Level Stealth brakes with the stem clips.

Great build. I wish I was flexible enough for something so racy.

Love this bike. For some buffed out, non-climby single track, nothing finer.
