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?)

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:
