I'm confused.
External cables like an SL3 but there is no seat post collar like on the new Tarmac.
Did you modify the frame?

Thanks..

Yes the frame is modified. But nothing crazy. Someone had broken the seatpost collar area, by over tightening. So i just cut it, and glued in the seatpost. And just like that a broken frame became my new summer bike

Yeah I dig it, photos are in a bit harsh daylight which isn't helping to be fair

Brilliant work on the gluing. What did you use to hold it?

Thanks :beerchug:
I have just used some regular carbon epoxy resin, to glue in the post. I also used another small piece of seatpost, so that the whole thing could be resting on top of the bottle cage bolt. And it seems to be very strong, no problems at all.
Only problem is saddle height, if i should ever want another saddle type :lol:

I Will try to make some better pictures with the Racing wheels on

Ace!

How'd you do the top tube? Masked off the lines and then sprayed a general stroke of one colour, then moved to the next etc?
