:shock: PLEASE START SELLING THESE!!! :shock:

But seriously thats amazing looking; perfect mix of class, art and modern technologies. I especially like the look of the dropouts and the BB area!

Wish I wasnt so indecisive on saddle position or I would have ordered a combo a long time ago! If there is a list forming for frames put me on it :thumbup:

I agree and if I owned a business in said industry, I would offer to pay for his schooling and then snap him up after.

That would be for sure great, and of course I'm also working on my study, I only have one more grade to go, so hopefully in one year time I'll be a mechanical engineer if everything goes like till now.


Decided not to put on the bike the Ritchey Superlogic handlebar, but will use Ritchey Alu WCS, like all those years. Why? Because I'm used to it and I can better compare the ride (so the Ritchey Superlogic is for sale if anyone is interested). But although I didn't used the carbon bar, that would drop another 50g, the weight of the bike is lower than I thought.

It's exactly 5796g

Can't wait to test it!

Thanks to all!
Something interesting happened to me this weekend, a journalist called me yesterday because the bike and also came on a short visit. He made a few photos and it will be published in a Slovenian bike magazine :).
I'll ride it and see if there is anything I would change - I did managed to make a short ride, and really didn't noticed any difference compared to my previous bike. Well that's a good sign because the frame has around 100g less, but I only managed to do a one hour ride and then it started to rain...and it's like that in the past few days and also quite cold, so I can't wait that the weather gets a bit better.

On the last photo you can see the saddle shell that will be used for my carbon saddles with saddle rails, only that it will have a cutout. I'm of course still working on it, to do all the paper work etc.,.. On 1.1.2014 I'll move to a larger workshop and then I'll officially start with production, will write more about it a bit later, still a lot of work to do but I can't wait to start with it!

Yes the top pulley is smaller - it's 11T, and the second one is 13T. Forget to mention that, sorry. Otherwise I think it wouldn't work well if both would be 13T.
