What a beautiful bike! Kudos!

(However I agree with kgt regarding the cages)

Wow, those new tires look good on this bike. They really make the frame pop!

Nice. What was custom about the frame? Was it custom geo?

Thanks for the feedback! I wish I chose carbon cages and black tyres to start with.

Yep, custom geometry.

Which tire clearance do you have and which tires do you have?

(I am thinking about having this Ti bike as my "rain/winter" bike but I need to accommodate some fenders (SKS or similar))

These are Vittoria Corsa Speed 23mm, i've also had Vittoria Corsa 23mm which both measure about 25mm on these wheels and Conti GP4000II 25mm which ballooned out to about 28mm. There is enough clearance in the fork and seat stays for ~30mm, the only thing that's limiting are the brakes calipers. I've found the Corsa Speeds to be a bit narrower than the Corsa tyres.

Congrats on your new bike and glad to hear you're addicted!

I dig the sleek transition between the head tube and fork. Very easy on the eyes.

(Me thinks your choice of SR11 and Boras belie your newness to the sport! You're older than your years.)
