I'm going to update the first post with the build list soon and will take some decent pictures this weekend.

Michel: I've been riding bikes of a small dutch bicycle brand for the last 2 years, so my opinion is probably not of much use to you.

Toffie: I had exactly the same concern as you. I really liked the look of the 54cm frame, but with my 180cm it probably wouldn't fit me well (it probably would though, but I did not want to take any unnecessary risk). Therefore I went with the 56cm frame. The BB to saddle height (Romin evo pro saddle) is 748mm. It's looking just fine, but I would have prefered to see a little more of the seatpost.

I am 183cm tall and my bb to saddle rail distance is 73cm-74cm.

We are almost the same on saddle height.
But I have longer arms. Now with 17cm head tube I have -17 degree stem. So I need lower front end.

Since your bike looks cool, my bike can be 56 I guess. 120mm stem, no spacers and -6 degrees. But I will wait for "sunlight" photos of yours for my final decision.

Update us on the paint pens when you get a chance to try them out. I've been using a normal black sharpie and it doesn't work that well on aluminum and some paint.
