Guilty as charged (I was wondering how long it would be until someone busted me). :lol:

I'm using the Italian Road Bike Mirror on my right bar-end. I started using one over a year ago for my commute on my old bike, and I found that for all-round riding it was brilliant (especially for descending) . So it went straight on the Baum.

I bought it here.

I'll never ride without one ever again.

I love that your "budget" Baum employs all the same cost maneuvers as my "budget" Firefly. 3T aluminum cockpit, HED Belgiums, SRAM Force build.

Baum does make one beautiful frame.

I must admit, it's pretty subtle. Nice find and good on you for caring more about safety, than some asinine rule :beerchug:

I don´t like the painting scheme usually seen on Baum but this one is awesome.

LOVE the frame, but really feel the 3T Pro stem draws the eye away from it ...
(probably only in photos - bet it doesn't happen in the flesh!)

Some options which would not break the bank:
3T Stealth
Syntace Force 109

Or black out an Enve for 2-3x the price.
