It's not so much a tank due to the frame - 1970g isn't too bad for a 58'ish frame size...

Image

But the fork certainly carries that mantle...

Image

Still, you've got to love those lugs...

Image

Image

And the pictures don't capture the depth of the paint...

Will be slapping on a Sram Red groupset, my 1,000g tubulars and some lightweight finishing kit to compensate for the frameset weight.

I've settled on white bar tape and saddle, but struggling with bottle cages. I have Blackburn camber on my other bikes but don't know whether to go black or white on this build?

Frames away having 1/4" machined off the top of the headtube. Once back I'll be mounting 32mm Carbon tubulars on, so yes, low profile (and with 26mm Schwalbe Ones super comfy too hopefully!).

Bit upset that I've nicked the Z on the headtube logo...

Remove the decals from crankset and shifters and you have one perfect outcome.

Get one of those gold paint pens or some gold nail polish - touch up should work and no one will notice the area when you are moving fast.

Only done a quick shakedown ride - big one tomorrow - but all I can say so far is... Mike is the MAN!
