The new pictures do the bike justice. Looks like a great bike, light and purpose built. Very cool.

I agree. It's a beautiful execution of what the rider wants. I like it a lot. Bravo!

Lovely bike.

Bizarre that I've just got EE brakes and am planning to swap to a Clavicula M3 on my black English too!

Great minds think alike, etc...

Great bike! Though the saddle position seems a bit awkward, that's more aesthetically disturbing to me than the understandably tall head tube.
Why didn't you go for a somewhat steeper seat tube, giving you slightly longer and potentially more confortable seat stays?

I absolutely love this bike. :thumbup:

Purpose built. What more can be said?

Oh, and what frame pump is that (long or short rides, moving from frame pumps to minis was one of the stupidest things we cyclists have ever done)?

Looks great, if I were riding 600kms this is the sort of bike I'd want. The integrated Exposure Flare light is good and works well too.

Can't believe I missed the built bike till now. Looks really cool.

A purposeful, thoughtful and unique build from a true master. You can't beat that.
