the proportions on that frame look perfect, definitely a keeper if it fits.

Thx, yeah i agree about the proportions, spot on!

Its bit weird cause imo it looks smaller than most of the bikes ive had. But its more or less identical with my Moots. 1cm lower stack height than the Merlin. Reach is within 2mm or so between the Merlin and this when built. Optical illusion i guess.

TT: i measure 58 but sheet said 57.5
HT: 17.2 or similar
ST: 58 ctc.
Angels 73st 73.5 ht.

The Z5 just doesn't do it for me, for some reason. The lugs and the level top tube on this one are just sexy

Number 3 in line. Love it and would break from my disc brake dogma for this one.

Ha - no I mean my dogma (aka rhetoric) about how disc brakes are better. For a road bike, it's irrelevant performance wise. I just like them.

All I meant is that if I got the chance to own a bike this beautiful, I would be fine with the rim-brakes.

Can I be number 4 in line? This would match my Z1 CX perfectly and is the same size.

Love how the tape, saddle, Campy group and frame detailing all have a swoopy, swirling ominous look like some sort of Kraken. Gorgeous build.

Coming back from vacation is never all positives.. But when your office looks like this its not all bad! My form is very poor from sitting in a car all summer but hopefully that will pick up in a week or 2.

This bike is superb btw, simply superb!
