I do rather have an external low cup and no ring under my stem. The Inset 1 is an internal headset ;-)
I also wanted to keep my actual straight fork, and not have to change the headset if I get a tapered fork in the future.

Plus, the CK headsets are so beautiful that I wanted it to be visible.

Do you have a weight for just the frame?

I have not seen anything from new Litespeed in titanium for a while but your bike looks excellent!

Right, there's almost no information, test, reviews on the internet about these new frames since 2013 (T1, T3, T5,...).
I don't know why!

I haven't ridden this bike so much, but all I can say is that it's stiff, efficient, sharp,...The welds are beautiful, i love this "handmade" finish. (Ok, not as beautiful as Moots, Eriksen, Firefly,...).

The frame, size ML, is 1363gr without seat clamp.

Very satisfied with this build, which is 6,6kg with the Enve Classic 25. Some changes to come, stay tuned ;-)

Nice looking sticker upgrade.

Have you gotten some miles on the bike? How does it ride?

Do you have your build?

Masterpiou your bike is amazing!

I own Ghisallo few years ago but it was too flexy(only 800 g frame).

Amd3rd, super frame but too much red colour(chainring & seat clamp), but bike is yours.

Nice ride to both!

Like The frame
I would choose a Tapered fork, would look more Fluid With the 44 ht.

Like the frame

It is really nice. Is it possible to remove the enve stickers or replace them with black?
