Hey...could you provide some guidance on size. I normally ride a 56cm top tube road frame...with a 25mm setback post and a shortish 70mm stem
Looks like I'm between sizes 55 vs 57 top tube...but i'm thinking the 57 would be more for me???

What would you like to know? I find the 175mm head tube on my 57 is a bit big, but the 155mm on the 55 would be too small for me.

You've probably seen the geometry chart on the web site.

Jee, they've been discounted again to 450 GBP!! Wow, that's cheap.
Take the VAT off, then add postage, it's still very cheap

Today I bought a nice pair of Campagnolo Hyperon Ultra Two for the bike. Weight will be around 7.3Kg now.

This looks fantastic, I have contemplating an orange one for a while but have never pulled the trigger, however after seeing this I may just do so!

Just a quick photo of the bike with Hyperon Ultra wheels ( Conti Competition Tubulars 25mm rear & 22mm front ) - now it's around 7,3Kg. The wheels look small compared to the Bora's I have also for this build, but in real life it's okay.


The day after , decided to take off the Continental Tubulars & to put on some Vittoria Grapheen+ 25mm.

What is the size of headset you used on this build? I am just starting a project with this frame. Looks great!
