Built. Just bar tape which is due in tomorrow.
Pics with Deda Zero 100 in black & Dark Metal Polish for comparison. Spacers will be ditched for UD carbon once height nailed and steerer trimmed. That is once I've sourced some unbranded ones that is. Any ideas?

Love the build and the 44mm head tube doesn't look too bulky.

Pearl white is the new white

Thanks.

The down tube diameter was upped to accommodate the 44mm head tube.

Riding home this evening I was taken aback at the way it felt. Super solid and planted but very very smooth. Have to wait for Sunday to give her a proper work out.

Love the build! I'd favour the black stem and perhaps try a black spacer too the see if it hangs together visually

Good luck keeping it clean though, as an owner of a pearl white Parlee I can tell you it's a full time job!

i really like the frameset !!! :thumbup: however, i would have attempted an all-silver build with ritchey classic components (bar, stem, seatpost), a silver crankset (my wife has an aluminium centaur on her bike, dura ace would be possible too) and a silver wheelset (silver CK hubs and spokes paired with a black rim with silver brake flanges). but this is just my taste and shouldn't bother you! :noidea:

anyway, enjoy your ride, that's what it is all about (after all the serious brainwork related with choosing the components and the build itself) !!! :beerchug:

I think the DMP Deda stem complements the pearl white, nicely.

^^^ that enigma is pure class - all ties together very well.
It's good to see an Enigma that fits - most seem to have a ton of spacers.
What hubs and rims are you using ?
