That's one funky frame, but your pics make it look good! How does it ride? The seatpost itself looks crazy uncomfortable.

This is actually new build, except for the saddle and wheelset.
The same frame that I rode during the year just got sold and I can tell you, that the ride was surprisingly comfortable, even on a long or steep climbs. Got used to it in no time.
Only one thing... :smartass: ... with this 80mm wheelset, flat frame, at high speeds over the 50,60 km/h you have a big problem, when you encounter strong crosswinds. :shock:

I have the same problem on my TT bike with 88mm deep rims. Last year was windy which was one reason I didn't use it much it was a bit hairy.

Love Look's.

Thanks.
Just wanted to give some life into "old" 2008 frame design, with some extra, "over the top" bling-bling accessories. :lol:

I'll also comment on the spectacular photography; it does the bike serious justice.

I'm a fan of the bars wrapped to the stem - not a fan of the gold tidbits.

Personally, I never liked the design of the frame, when it came out and it still feels like ugly duckling. :hmm:
Usually, over the years I went for more straight forward builds and complying with the "unwritten" rules, regarding color and components combination.
I try to give it a different spin with this build.
I'm glad you like it, it's slowly growing on me too. :thanx:
