Nic - I love the frame and graphics. I have some Prada glasses in black with the logo on the side almost the same as yours. It wasn't a criticism.

It's lovely. Really lovely...

BUT.

That delicious (and expensive) bar tape really needs a MUCH better job doing on it - both sides are wrapped the same way for one thing! Please watch a YouTube video and re-wrap it, or read this and re-do it. :shock:

Very classy and beautiful build. The Boras compliment it oh so well. I know this isn't a WW build but do you know overall weight?

My guess around 6.5kg.

I have not weighted it but yes with the Boras it should be around 6.5kg.

Amazing build!! Well exectuted color scheme and complimentary parts. Would agree with the other comments that a bike of this quality deserves to have the details like cabling and bar tape done correctly.
