My dream bike that I would like to share with you all.

I'm considering to change small parts like the saddle, stem and seat post. Any weight weenies ideas?

Cool paint! I think the red bar on the stem clashes horribly with the frame color though. Try an all black or carbon stem.

It looks fantastic! I'd go with a thompson stem, or solid black. the red on the stem is a bit off.
I'd also go with a seatpost that's solid black. otherwise it is sensational.

Very nice. There's a chap that lives round the corner to me that has the same colour frame, I did a bit googling on it but couldn't find any info. How many of these were produced?

This colour, neon red which has a hint of salmon in it was a happy accident. They were supposed to be American Flyer red but something went awry on the mix and these came out, which of course look great, though loved and loathed in equal measure. I like it a lot.

Weight?

The actual weight is 6430g for a 56cm size frame. I can drop some weight down if I change the conti competition tubular for a vittoria or a tufo.

Devastatingly hot.

I agree about that red stripe though - doesn't look to be in place at all. But that's not a huge problem - takes 5 minutes to "wash" it out with a small bit of acetone and a soft cloth from that 3T stem.

Thank you all for the feed backs. I will look quickly for a all black stem and seatpost, than I post the pictures.
