I'm really excited about this bike, this is my first custom frame. I took it out for it's first ride this morning to dial everything in and just decided to keep going. I ended up riding a little over 70km. I'm running a 44t up front and an 11-32 in the rear which gives me a top speed of about 50kph.

Also I have a Selle San Marco Concor saddle coming and a tubis Airy rack. This is just a spare saddle until that one arrives.

What is the purpose of this bike, besides it looking gorgeous? (apart from the lights)

Can't seem to figure out why some would ride carbon wheels with mudgaurds :-)

If supposed to keep you dry, you could add the extension to the frond mudguard, which is most likely the origin of half of the rain/mud on your shoes.
Bike looks great by the way!

I cut it there, lots of toe overlap on the fender.

I love it...great choice of color too.
I personally would have sloped the TT for a bit of standover height, but I dig the classic look too.
Wish more of my customers wanted I.F.'s as we have only done a few and they've all been great!

Best,
Mike

i have to carry so much stuff with me in the winter. that i de ided my normal street bike just wasnt fitting the bill. I do have a set of clinchers i can put on it but i really love riding tubulars all the time and i'm willing to pay the price to do it. i used to spend $50 a week on gas so an extra tire here and there is getting off cheap.

Cool bike. Not really sold on those Tune cranks though, not with those chainrings anyway. I think it looks much better with a single subtle chainring.

Whence comes your wheels? Is it that they are Chinese rims? If so what manufacturer?

Wheels are Chinese Farsport 24mm with Ed hub ceramic hubs. This is the first set I've bought complete and I've got to say they are good at building a inexpensive wheel.

Wrap the tubes with inner tube or something before you mount those fenders. The rubber brackets will wear through your paint.
