Was urged to create my own thread so here goes.

Build as follows:
- Custom Geometry Titanium Frame
- Praxis Bottom Bracket (PF30 to 24mm)
- 3t ARX Stem (110mm to 120mm depending on how I feel)
- 3t Funda Fork
- Specialized Aerofly Bars (40cm)
- 3t Ionic Stealth Post
- Lizard Skin Tape
- Duraace 9000 Groupset
- Alligator iLink Shift and Brake Kit - Gold
- KMC 11 Speed Gold Chain
- Bontrager RXL Cages
- Roval CLX40 Wheels
- Continental GP4000 Tyres

Rivet is a local Australian brand run by a guy called Anthony out of Velofix, Rozelle. The great thing about this relationship is that Anthony at Velofix is a respected Specialized BG bike fitter who can take your specific data and custom design a frame around that data. He also has a wealth of racing and riding experience to draw upon.

This is actually my second Rivet frame. Since I had my last frame designed I lost about 20 kilos and did a bunch of core work, so I craved something a little more aggressive.

The frame was designed around racing, so very stiff with tight geometry. Having said that it's very easy to live with and I find myself riding it almost every other day when I'm not racing. When I ride it I feel like I'm riding a bmx.

The PF30 bottom bracket will eventually be tapped for a T47 Ceramic Bottom Bracket that I have on order.

Total Weight for the build pictured is 7.5 kilos. I am not sure how much the custom purple flip paint to the bars, stem, and forks adds.

I have since fitted Roval CL64 wheels. They are a little heavier than the CLX40s but hold speed better. In addition, they are outrageously wide, and with the turbo 24mm tyres fitted they handle brilliantly.

Over time I might mix up and change a few bits and pieces, but for now I am enjoying the ride :)

Unconventional and stunning. Probably the first good looking bike with gold cables and things that I've seen. Great work.

@thedonnydino: do you know the regular price of the frame ? There is nothing on the website.
