Literally all the listing said was: The picture of the bike in the work stand is from the listing. The rest are just detailed pictures of the frameset itself.

Made by the legendary bike part manufacturer Chris King, this 60cm Cielo bicycle frame have a custom-built feel. Made with high quality steel, the frame provides a timeless aesthetic and classic ride quality.
Seller didn't provide lots of detail regarding what specifically it was, so it took a little internet sleuthing to make sure it was a Sportif based on Geo (HT length) and axle to brake hole measurement. It was a risk I was willing to take.

I know of a matching 60cm canti CX bike for sale in town if you need an offroad sibling! If it was a size smaller, I would probably have cracked, as I have a thing for Cielos.

The one in the shop is in excellent to most-excellent condition.

I understand why CK stoped making these but have seen one of these a lot since a friend has one, it is such a nice bike with more details than most custom bikes I have seen. I guess people did not want to spend that kind of money new when they could go custom but everything about these bikes is top notch. From the polished parts to the paint job.

Agreed. The head-tube detail is sweet. And that's why I have dibs if this one gets released

Please buy it so I'm not tempted to..

http://straightupcycles.ca/bike_prod...ng-cielo-61cm/

It has CK Classic 10spd hubs and CK BB. Note the fender mounts

The exchange rate is favorable. But there's shipping and potentially some import duties to consider.

Here's the size chart: https://www.elitecustom.sg/products/...ant=1287591939

I'd love to bring this one it, but no room right now I don't think.
