Oh, and welcome. :welcome:


Thank you very much. It was a long build but well worth it.

The custom decals are very nice as is the overall build. Just not much of a fan of those wheels.

Timo, thanks,

I have to admit at first I was not sure about the wheels, now after riding them and the price they are unbeatable.

I am in London and have been in and out of potholes already and come out ok. :roll:
unintentionally of course.

I don't know any wheels that are that strong and stiff at that 1080g weight for the same price or less.

Thinking that this is, in my opinion, build of the year so far.

This bike belongs to me and I'm originally from Hong Kong.
The Cherry Blossom has a strong significance in oriental culture. In Japan it's called the "Sakura" and signifies Bravery so was found on all kamikaze fighter. In Chinese it's the "Ying-fa". The Cherry Blossom has to suffer a harsh winter before it can bloom. So can signify a rough translation One requires to suffer before it can achieve greatness or "Glory through Suffering"! But it is also the logo for my Charity for Children's orphanage in Malaysia.

And that is what's going on..

Why did you choose the 3T fork ? Why not an Enve ? Or a Scapula ?

And that's why it's good there are different tastes, otherwise the world would be a dull place.

I personally love it :)

Hi theklm753, firstly it's a tapered head tube and Scapula are 1 1/8th only and it's an acquired tasted. Light but still.

Enve 2.0 is the only tapered option and the 3T is 10g lighter. plus warranty in Europe is a bit trickier.

Also 3T is more asthetically pleasing than the Enve on this frame.

For the frame finish I figured the Italian fork was better. Viner would otherwise their unbranded Deda Surf forks for this paticular frame which was not to my liking.
