You need the black sotto voce (IIRC) King headset.

I guess you are slowly hurrying to finish this off. I think the finished result will be worthwhile.

That paintwork is amazing! Enough said really....

Could we get a side on shot with your low profile rime and lightweights...

fizik arione carbon CX saddle (apologies damjan :wink: )
3T doric limited seatpost 27.2 (using shim to bring up to 29.6 - we'll see how that works!)

Pegoretti never fails to impress me! :) I'm digging the "vintage" LWs :thumbup:

All a matter of personal preference, i guess. Still don't like the paintwork at all and LWs? On a frame like that?

It's gorgeous, truly. Even still - there are some details grating on me. The platinum King headset is just plain wrong - it needs a black one, and the brake and shift cables have been cut way too long. Not the housing, but the cables themselves.

I love the paintwork.

Absolutely fantastic build. Looking forward to a full ride report.
