Hello!

After half a year of waiting finally i got the last and most important piece of puzzle - frame weighting 723grams(size 55 with hanger) is really good considering stiffness. I can't say anything about durabilty so far but after other frames i had from Simplon i doubt that there will be some issues. Complete bike is about 5.2kg, i don't know the exact weight yet but lightness wasn't priority however it's quite lightweight. First of all i wanted it rigid and realiable after two weeks and few hundred kilometers i can say i made it - so far so good, everything works perfectly - even front derailleur. Wheels seen in pics are built with tune mig45/mag150 hubs - reynolds 32 rims and sapim cxray - competition spokes, that weight 966gram aren't as stiff as Mavic CCU i usually use for racing but they do their job really wellunder my 74kg i love their agility on ascends and comfort provide. Whole makes nice mix of lightweight, comfort and stifness especially with Mavic CCU wheel - something i was looking for a long time.

Pics are located https://plus.google.com/photos/112265187285892954182/albums/5895971450669596289?authkey=CKbh2IDntLnizwE not too many so far but will be more in next fe days

Beautiful. There's a special place in my heart for Simplon...

I only wish their geometry worked for me. :(

Your bike is outstanding in its field.
