Yes beautiful but that bulbous Enve stem ruins it for me.

Nah, you're crazy! Painted up to match, it fits fine in my eyes.

Maybe something different might have been better, but the matching paint makes it all good.

I actually like the Enve stem. I know a lot of people don't , but it's super pretty to look down at the gold leaf mountain ridge tracing its way up the centre when grinding up a long climb.

Decided to give my mini pump a lick of paint the other day to match the bike. Loser I know, but I like things to match ;)

Just a lovely bike all round. Nicely done. it's one of those bikes that you like more each time you look at it, as you appreciate the subtle slightly abstract lines of the mountain ridges and know the story behind them. But yeah, I too have a strong dislike for those ENVE stems. I really think a Deda Zero 100 lends itself perfectly to these types of builds... just paint it to match so you have that "pretty view" on it just like your ENVE.
The pump is not "Loser"... it's fantastic. But it's gotta take a lot of effort to get a road tire pumped up proper with that thing. I ride with the Lezyne Road Drives as well, but the longer version.

I'm more of "it is sensational". The pleasure I get from looking at this bike is serene. Thank you for sharing this with us OP!

Thanks for sharing the mountain photos (missed the updates :oops: ), stunning just like the bike that was inspired by them.
Seems there's a lot of creative paint jobs out there at the moment, but sometimes it feels like folks are just trying to out do each other in levels of good bad taste. This on the other hand is subtle and genuine, a real standout.

Not only do I like the bicycle but I like the stem too. Maybe because I ride a 3T ARX LTD which is similar.

Any reason you stuck with a Lezyne pocket pump instead of having a full-sized frame pump like the Silca Impero or Topeak Road Master Blaster painted to match?

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

@kmai18 I already had the Lezyne and hadn't originally planned to paint it. Once I got the bike and put the black pump on it, I thought it would be fun to paint it. I'm not a huge fan of those full sized frame pumps to be honest. It makes the bike look like it has two top tubes. Of course, I have a track pump at home for pumping up the tyres so the Lezyne only gets used when I get a puncture which is (kncok on wood) not very often.
