I love this bike, just enough red, and not overdoing it with the anodised parts.

Stunning bike, love the subtle touches. Nice saddle, a Busyman?

I screwed up the front brake cable housing, I was jetlagged and did this at 3am. The rest are fine. Right now I will go ride it and worry about it later :shock:

Amused by the red logo on the forks (has someone been copying Prada?)


i'd love to see the prada graphics that this looks like.

this design was actually born out of seeing one of my frames with a paint mask applied for standard graphics. the painter had cut the mask(stencil) very symmetrical and to me it looked fantastic as a contrasting block under the logo/lettering. was purely accidental. maybe i do have an eye?

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.

Nice bike Lionel!

IS that a BB30 bottom bracket with a campy adapter, or was this made with a Ital or English threaded BB?

It is a PF30 BB with the campy PF30 cups. I hesitated a long time on that but Nick swore that it won't creak :D
