after being painted a second time and long wait, here is the new Panther.

seat post? ;)

The Panther

His gaze has grown so weary from the passing
Of bars that there is nothing it can hold.
There seem to be a thousand bars about him,
And, out beyond a thousand bars, no world.

The mellowed stride of sleekly powered footsteps
Revolving in the smallest ring of all
Is like a dance of strength about a center
Wherein a mighty will stands stunned in stall.

Only at times the pupil's soundless curtain
Is reeled away, letting an image start
Inward through the taut silence of his sinews
And come to nothing in the heart.

The UT crankset would look rather bulky, go for the very first generation Record Carbon

is this the frame you brought for your wife Stefan?
Or is it something which has been influenced with the Rapha Black/Pink/White in mind?
Looks like its going to be something quite individual and different :thumbup:

any frame builder out there who is able to build a perfect frame, I start to hate these "artists".

Ouch! 66mm?! Not even close.
I could build you one but I gave up steel for carbon years ago. I have had an urge to cut some tubes and bring out the torch again however. Would you trust me? I found this stem in the Mediterranean I've been dying to use on something.

Ok, joking aside, might a couple of shims solve the issue? Just a thought. As long as everything else is ok.

This is the same guy going on about purple cables on that Baum? With a pink headset and hubs and 66mm bottom bracket?

Nice!
