Here's a Cyfac Absolu that was recently built up by a customer in Paris.
It's a custom version, with minimal paint and some very subtle finish details. The build kit is obviously a very light one, with the Clavicula cranks and LW wheels. It's the client's 4th Cyfac. He has one at 7kgs (15.4lbs), another at 6.1 kgs (13.4lbs), and this one at 5.7 kgs (12.5 lbs).

(In the Gallery section) I would like to see that one in matt or semi gloss, to see all the shapes of the tubes, and details better. Maybe it's your photographer's skills that have to improve ;)...
I also would like to see the Cyfac signature, even in a stealth look...but still a super bike ... :beerchug:

What is the size? What is the frame and fork weight?

Beauty! :thumbup: A bit of a shame not to see the cyfac signature a bit more prominent tho, could be done w/ very little weight added.

Great! (That deserves better pics). The only thing I do not like is the chainrings.

Yup - definitely needs black chainrings, and the black version of the rear mech.

Could get that tub rolled up much smaller too...

i disagree, i like the Silver Mech and chain rings. Adds flair and matches the branding on the TT

Great Build, IMO

I don't get it. It's a custom frame yet there's a huge spacer tower :noidea:
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Cyfacteam probably meant custom paint. Stock frame.

That would explain it, yet in my opinion the spacer tower completely ruins the appearance of this bike :(

Because I've lusted after a Cyfac for a few years now, I have to agree I wish the name was on there more prominently. Maybe just a panel on the downtube? Ghost lettering?

Not that I would turn this one away, mind you!
