2nd on the Boras, -17 stem, R12, blackwalls . Looks super fast, makes the frame color pop.

Thanks! After going down an initial path for a build and then deciding to change it up significantly, I'm really happy with the way everything turned out.

From today's ride over in Portola. Of all the road bikes I've had, this is my favorite. It just rides so well.

Start off with mine. Make everything better but keep the color. You get yours.

Not quite sure I follow. I do have a soft spot for Cannondale though, especially the big round tube road bikes (I've owned 3).

That said, your Vanilla is stunning I had not seen that bike before tonight. Just super lovely. Everything so well done.

New custom stem is in the works from Tomii Cycles. I've been nothing but impressed with Nao and his work. He's been excellent to work with.

As much as I love looking at it in the metal, the next step is paint

Black w the Tomii in red to match the frame?

That's so beautiful....just nothing like it and totally matches the aesthetic and level of quality of the frameset.

Your bike is always facing to the right in the pics.

Just an observation.

I considered Black with the Tomii logo text in red, but ultimately decided to stick with black as the only color.

I've been trying to find a stem solution I was happy with and not finding it. Thus, going custom and I've admired Nao's work for a while.
