Was this a total custom? A build list would be great too! I'm not sure I would personally do the King inset but it does look good! :thumbup:

Awsome bike, beautiful. But.... don't really like the cages bit to bulky in my opinion. But the rest, classic.

Those cages look like Arundels and I can't imagine those being considered bulky.
They are an excellent fit to the bike both form and function wise.
Nice build.

Awesome.

That's the best looking Ti frame with internal HS that I've seen.

That's my opinion. Ti Kings might be a slight bit better, but that's really splitting hairs.

Really nice. Something about Fireflys that makes the Flite saddle looks absolutely perfect on them.

Awesome. I'd be speaking to them right now if I didn't already have my Baums.
