Looks lovely, well done :thumbup:

How about some frame protectors so that the cables don't rub off the lovely paint job on the headtube? And of course a second bottle cage :)

fantastic!!
I love the way the seat stays have been left black to complement the forks.
Out of interest what does the bike weigh in a kg style?

That's right, Dario has black and white Falz forks and not paintinf the seat stays makes it look balanced.

I have not weighted it yet. In this config it should be around 7.7kg or so.

Lovely ride. Quite like the tall head tube, gives it the custom look.

Would you consider a smaller offset post so your saddle sits more in the centre of the rails?

I think you'd call this build 'cool'. The everyday choice of components make it all the more so.

Nice job!

Love it!

(you might want to get some armourfend type clear film to stick over the paint in vulnerable arears like the underside of the downtube and chainstays to keep the paint looking fresh , I have it on mine)
