Looks like disc and eTap or Di2, no?

I'm not a big red anodized guy, so I'd choose a black headset there to match the decals and such, but it's a stunning combo as-is -- excited to see how the whole thing comes together!

Looks good. That red headset brings out the red pinstripe.

Hey Dave,

Has Llewellyn developed stainless lugs that permit a more sloping top tube than a degree or two?

Asking for a friend

Yes - Dazza offers stainless lugsets to work with a level or sloped top tube and in oversized or XL sized tubing.

Stainless tubes and castings, silver filler, brass adjusters and white bronze head badge proving that dissimilar metals can play nice together.

That’s really nice Dave, great work but I’d prefer the absence of that weblike “fin” between the down tube and the seat tube.

That's the cool thing about having a guy build a bike just for you is that you have options. Here's a straight non-webbed fillet BB. This one happens to be stainless with silver fillets - no paint required.

Yup, that’s better . At least if I were buying it. I’d want paint, but it’s nice to see the filets before they get covered up.

Not even close to a stupid question.....a stupid question would be do I enjoy a dark beer after a ride....now that's dumb.

You nailed it....it's a vent hole to allow the air to expand when laying the fillets at the end of the bridge. Without the vent the fillet will "blow out" when you come close to sealing it up with the last bead or two. So a vent hole is drilled, the fillets are put down and then the vent hole is filled leaving the little brass dot.
