OOF. You did a great job on that build. I'll holler if I see you around.

I would love to try that bicycle for a weekend.

Really, that's a very practical build.

Congrats, yet another builder I now have interest in.

Insanely good looking build! I've had to have looked at this post at least ten times today! haha... not kidding though....

Just a great combo of parts, very well thought out and a stunning frame (WHAT A COLOR TOO!).

Thanks for sharing!

That frame is perfect. Mind if I ask ST & TT dimensions? Gorgeous.

thanks fellers.
The horizontal TT is 56 cm, it's just slightly sloping. ST is 567 mm to the top of the seat tube so around 56 cm as well.
Chainstays are 425 mm. I did not want a touring bike so they aren't touring bike long. If and when I put panniers on they will be on the front, and the rear will just be a rack with the tent bungeed on the top. I'm not sure if panniers will clear my feet or not. I wanted a road bike that I can put racks on and load for a bike trip once or twice a year.

The reason I asked about the chainstay length I have a Waterford kinda like your bike, but I requested 430 mm chainstays. I ask my self often did I make the right choice instead of 425 mm. At 430 the bkke doesn't feel slow.

White Industries 50/34 crankset with 8 speed era m950 XTR derailleurs and Dura Ace 7800 downtube shifters surprisingly play very nicely together (once I changed the high limit screw on the front derailleur). I'm tempted to use a long cage RD to make up for the 16 tooth difference but I'll probably leave it as is. I'd never had a bike with canti brakes before so had to learn how to do that today but they work great once I got them set up. Tires are Challenge Paris-Roubaix 27c which feel great and look even better. I eventually want to relace the White Ind. hubs to some A23 rims but these will do for now. Only thing that bugs me is the mismatch between the soft matte ano finish on the Paul components and the polished White Ind. bits/couplers/CK headset.
Weighs in just over 20 lbs as pictured.
