I prefer this version because I love the classic wheels and tires and the black and white bar tape is definitely not my cup of tea.

Yeah I don't think they look as nice as yours Timo, I don't have the funds or guts to paint mine like yours...maybe one day.

Burls Ti with the same geo as my old Canyon Ultimate CF.

Painted titanium looks so good.

Here's mine

About 52cm. Just got the shifting dialed in and I love it.

Yeah I know.. :oops:
I wanted a (very) granny gear on this build so it's a rival 11-32t & long cage deraillier with red levers and force everywhere else.

vv No, it's a bailout gear for exceptional circumstances.. like the third climb on day 4 of a tour in the Alpes, knees failing, can't get dropped exceptional. The bike feels so light I've not yet reached for the 32 even on some short 25% pitches. Love this bike :)

Light as that is already, there's a good amount of weight loss potential there. Nice work

Beautiful frame and build and loving the 44mm head tube.

Think I would have left it at the down tube decal. On such a small frame the seat tube decal looks really squashed, and the tubing decal looks better on the seat tube than on the down tube where you have it near the head tube. Maybe that's a bit subjective.

Why the severe angle on your brake levers? I like to run mine slightly further down than 45 degrees from the ground, but yours look about 90 degrees! In theory they should follow the line of your forearm as it approaches the bar, but these clearly don't. Must place a lot of strain on your wrists.

Why a 29er when you are clearly not a tall guy?

Myth #1: 29er's aren't only for tall people.

Awesome build, looks great!

Seven post looks a bit off, but other than that, looks really solid.

Are those decals or etched logos? Looks etched to me.

They do look etched, you are right. Shame - that seat tube logo will be harder to remove!
