I asked for a gloss black with some of the silver glitter from the frame to tie it all together. Turned out great.
The Z on the fork crown was inspired by a Firefly fork that we liked.
makes sense. and looks great as is! going to wet for the color match is a $400 up-charge, so I get it.

excited for ya! and stoked to see her built up!

can't wait to see pictures of the whole frame outside in the sun where that color can really come out.

i hope you're taking the day off of work to get this done!

Let's see how it looks all built up.
I am not opposed to getting a different fork down the line.
Too soon to be splitting hairs on this.

Thanks!

Have to retract my previous comment about the fork.
It fits perfectly and looks great in the mock up ! Can't wait to see the complete !!

With proper wheels

Hey guys, thanks for the kind words.
Mike did an amazing job on this.

These are the wheels I plan on running.
I de-stickered the seat post.
Going to remove the logos from the stem next.
The Ciussi cages are not doing it for me, so I ordered a set of Arundel Mandible in matte carbon finish.
It's taking on a stealthy look that I am really digging.


Caballero - All good. This frame was built around that fork. I sent it to Make and asked to build a frame around it. So if he's good with it I am. I feel you though.
If I were buying a new fork I would have gotten one with the uber wide crown to mate up with the OS head tube. As it sits it's looking really good. Not sure it warrants a 500 dollar substitution.

Angry - Trust me, I would have this all done by now but I promised my buddy Rick that we would do it at his shop. He is in Napa right now so when he returns it's on! It's been rainy and overcast since the frame arrived so I haven't seen it in the direct sunlight.

Artie,

What's the frame geometry, if you don't mind posting it?
