Thought i would share my new Steel Road frame with you guys n girls , i had been trying to decide between an Engima , Van Nicholas and Condor for some time and travelled upto the NEC Bike in the UK show last fall to see and talk to the brands in question to help make my final decsion .

Standard sizing but went with a custom paint finish , really pleased with how its turned out and before i forget 2,41 kgs is total weight as pictured .

Hope you like .

Lovely frame. I think it will result to a fine bike.

Ahhhh!!! So dope! Love Condors, hate that they're totally absent in the US (except the awful knockoffshttp://www.bikesdirect.com/products/condor/sb_s6d-ultegra-6800-roadbikes.htm).

Sweet. The tubing is so oversized it is hard to tell it is steel.

Looks great! What type of clearances does the frame have? Do you think you could get 28c tires on it?

Open Pave 27 will fit but 28 Continentals may be a little tight.
