Absolutely nothing short of spectacular! Indy Fab's level of craftsmanship is wonderful! Combined with your parts group and wheel set, the build is really beautiful. Well done!

Absolutely beautiful!

Anybody else think that the old SRAM force group is really pretty because it's not covered it crappy graphics that sram favor now?

Beautiful! I think the seatclamp looks a bit bulky and out of place. That and the spacers, i guess. The workmanship is clear to see, however. Awesome build

Awesome bike, holy hell! :thumbup:

Just a word about those DT RWS (rachet-wheel system) skewers...
They are ok until the plastic ratchet mech starts to go,
then toss them.

If you don't, one day it'll strip entirely and you'll be standing at the side of the road unable to get your wheel off...
:doh:

Yes, nicely presented. Great photos. Re the skewers, I have a few sets of those skewers and while they look good and I've never stripped one, they kind of defeat the purpose of the whole "quick release" mechanism on most other skewers. Wouldn't get them again for that reason alone. Might as well go back to the old "wingnut" style if you have to turn them rather than just flip them open and drop the wheel out.

Gorgeous bike, I seriously want a Ti rig now 8) I think a deep carbon fibre conical spacer would suit the build better at the current stem height and the Enve stem just doesn't look quite right, I'm thinking a Thomson X2 would look right at home :?:
