Paint looks great. Your full bike picture isn't working for me, but I'm sure it is awesome.
Looks like you're ready to get out in the Oakland hills, consider me jealous :P

Awesome!!...somewhere i think you mentioned that after a detailed discussion with Parlee you opted for the integrated seatpost...
I am intrigued, why is the ISP preferable according to Parlee? cheers

Looks amazing! I agree with your choice of ENVE and gumwalls but agree with others, where are the full bike shots??

It appears that Flickr was having a little too much "enriched 'nog" yesterday, so the full-bike pic didn't get replicated to the right places. I've hopefully fixed the links. Here it is again, just for completeness. (Please note that this picture is not "to the regs" on a profile shot. I'm in the design process of a garage with a white door so I can submit a truly canonical profile picture).

With the weather we're getting now, I think you have every right to be jealous. 67 degrees today.

Actually, I wanted the ISP for purely aesthetic reasons. Whereas ISPs have gone somewhat out of style due to the difficulty in resale and the challenges in initial sizing, I wanted the seattube to run all the way to the saddle in an uninterrupted red.

If Parlee were making the choice, I'm *absolutely* sure they'd suggest a standard frame. Getting the sizing right with an ISP is terribly difficult (especially if you're like me and you want the saddle at 743mm when the topper is absolutely flush with the ISP, showing no unpainted carbon). I ended up shipping them my saddle so they could use it when mocking the tubes.

From a ride-quality perspective, I'll just have to get some miles on it and see what it feels like. I do, however, like the look.

More pictures to come. Holidays with families and kids are a busy time. I feel lucky to have gotten it built and photographed at all.
