Love it. I could imagine God (EM) riding that in his Faema days. I think it looks good as it is. A nice mix and well bling.

I would change the brakes to a set of M5. Similar weight to FRM, same golden color but heavily increased performance.

nice build ...

Hi Bruno,

It's a really nice bike, since you work at Merckx, can't get the stem and seatpost powdercoated in the same gold color as on the frame? :?:
Perhaps you could also get a custom painted pair of bottle cages (in carbon?)

How do you think the easton rearend compares to the standard scandium one in terms of weight, stiffness, comfort etc ? have you ridden both ?

great bike!

Thank you guys for the good comment.
Mr Merckx comment was nice too.
Regarding the carbon rear, this is not available on the market but I like the looks. I've never ridden a normal Premium.
Regarding the brakes, I bought myself a pair of Record black ones.

One problem, it's not really a weightweenie. It rides fantastic but with the Hyperon wheels it's just nog light enough for my weightweenie-heart.It must be around 7.5kg.
Where can I lighten it up? But don't forget a certain budget.

The bike is indeed a big bling but I do miss the lightness of my Cervélo R3.
Nobody who wanna do an exchange??? :lol:
