I like this build a lot, especially with the shallow profile wheels :thumbup:

The only thing that looks out of place IMO is the Stronglight crankset; a Fulcrum RS would look a lot better (and keep the red/black theme going).

I agree, once I planned to replace to Racing Torq RRS, but I think it's much heavier than Helion2, and too expensive.

Nice ride, I like the classic wheels too. Your garage door in photo 1 looks really heavy.

steel is real. it is here. love it, and Spirit's a very nice tubeset. would take off the enve decals, but that detracts little from an extremely nice build.

SWEET!! Got the rare feeling of immediately thinking "I'd buy that if he was ever selling it" which is always a good sign. Well done, lovely bike.

I'm planning to change this crankset. Buget is around $400 incl. BB and about <750g for a crankset.

Do you have any ideas? I think Sram Red maight be nice.

Lovely.

Also nice to know Enigma can do stuff like this - they're reasonably local(ish), and I can get hold of them at the shop (for customers or myself!).

This could change my winter bike plans... :shock:

sram red would be nice, yes. fulcrum rs , as said, too. i would appreciate rotor agilis-crankset-adds best to the slim-looking frame.
i really love the bike with the reflex/dura ace wheelset.

Standard SRAM Red or SRAM Red black would ROCK on this build.

Don't go Fulcrum - I reckon it'd ruin it.

I changed the headset and painted chainrings black.

@Rich, Thanks for your article, but can you replace the picture to other one? You can use all pictures in my Flickr :D

Anyway, I thought steel frame was more flexible than carbon frame, but now I can't say it is correct; this frame has great stiffness than I had expected. However, there's no unplesant viberation, the ride is smoothness. I'm satisfied with this frame indeed.
