I rode it last summer at D2R2. Not sure if you were there, but here it is:

I missed D2R2 last year, but wow that bike looks the business! Very unique and creative.

My 2004 aluminum/carbon Wilier Alpe D’Huez with Record/Chorus 10 and Zipp 303’s. They sporting a new set of Vittoria Open Pavés from Campyguy and handled very nicely on a gravel ride yesterday.

Man that's cool! I've considered throwing my spare lefty on my TwinSix titanium Rando just for grins, but haven't yet. Your Firefly looks awesome.

Not mine, no affiliation, etc., etc., but the details on this Cyfac Titanium/Carbon frame look really nice.

That does look quite unique. It'd probably fit too, but I'm at the 1 in 1 out stage minimum.

One-off mixed-material Cyfac...really unique, I think. And it performs superbly, I bet.

Unreal. I bet one could have a 1000 other photographers stand in that spot, knowing nothing, and not one of them could have that image result. I have no idea how he did it, and so often. Wizardry?

Thanks Matt. I have to find a black campy brake with a longer bolt for the rear and set the front derailleur up differently, but it is an amazingly smooth ride and still very responsive to input.
