I was lurking this forum for some time now.
I get a lot of valuable info here-thanks guys!

No true leady reveal her age, or weight :oops: , so all I can tell right now is that I am a professional working in pharma industry. Riding bikes is something that I do from my young age.
Till now I have been riding mostly mtb and trekknig, but as I want to ride with my man now, I needed a road bike.

My first contact with Berk was when I got their saddle as a gift. I was impressed with the quaility and level of comfort.
So when I've started looking for my road bike, they were one of my favourite option.

And now- here it is. My very first custom road bike.

Since pictures tell more than words...here we go

Welcome to the forum! I'm looking forward to seeing more pics of the frame and to see the build come together. What groupset and wheels are you using?

Here are some more photos of my beautiful frameset.

Fsa orbit carbon headset was sanded and got matte clear coat. Weight 70 g.
Procraft seatpost clamp 10 g
Custom painted Berk saddle made to match frameset is 67 g

I didn't buy group set, I am going to use combination of various components.
Wheelset Mavic ksyrium superlight premium. I bought them used but in mint condition.
Tires are Conti GP4000 II 25 mm.

I'd say the seat would be perfect for a woman with the cut out in the middle. No pressure on soft tissue

I have the same saddle (with leather covering) and my wife wanted to try it out so we did a saddle swap for a ride...... now she want one of her own. She normally rides a Specialized Romin Pro, but like the Berk even more.
