Was urged to create my own thread so here goes.

Build as follows:
- Custom Geometry Titanium Frame
- Praxis Bottom Bracket (PF30 to 24mm)
- 3t ARX Stem (110mm to 120mm depending on how I feel)
- 3t Funda Fork
- Specialized Aerofly Bars (40cm)
- 3t Ionic Stealth Post
- Lizard Skin Tape
- Duraace 9000 Groupset
- Alligator iLink Shift and Brake Kit - Gold
- KMC 11 Speed Gold Chain
- Bontrager RXL Cages
- Roval CLX40 Wheels
- Continental GP4000 Tyres

Rivet is a local Australian brand run by a guy called Anthony out of Velofix, Rozelle. The great thing about this relationship is that Anthony at Velofix is a respected Specialized BG bike fitter who can take your specific data and custom design a frame around that data. He also has a wealth of racing and riding experience to draw upon.

This is actually my second Rivet frame. Since I had my last frame designed I lost about 20 kilos and did a bunch of core work, so I craved something a little more aggressive.

The frame was designed around racing, so very stiff with tight geometry. Having said that it's very easy to live with and I find myself riding it almost every other day when I'm not racing. When I ride it I feel like I'm riding a bmx.

The PF30 bottom bracket will eventually be tapped for a T47 Ceramic Bottom Bracket that I have on order.

Total Weight for the build pictured is 7.5 kilos. I am not sure how much the custom purple flip paint to the bars, stem, and forks adds.

I have since fitted Roval CL64 wheels. They are a little heavier than the CLX40s but hold speed better. In addition, they are outrageously wide, and with the turbo 24mm tyres fitted they handle brilliantly.

Over time I might mix up and change a few bits and pieces, but for now I am enjoying the ride :)

Unconventional and stunning. Probably the first good looking bike with gold cables and things that I've seen. Great work.

Very well done. The colors don't work for me but its not my bike. A painted ARX LTD would look great on your bike too.

Very well put together. As others have said, that front end is pretty. I've been curious how purple would go with titanium.
