I don't usually name my bikes but my daughter has been calling this bike Jack since it came in. I told her it was the Australian Flag, not the UK, but she didn't understand that. In fairness, the only difference between the two paint schemes is the Southern Cross below the seatmast on the 695.

Record 11, Caimillo GSL Micro brakes, Cinelli Neo Morphe bars, X-2 pedals, SLR saddle.

The frame is stunning. What is the total weight? That has to be one of the strangest shaped bars I've ever seen...

It really needs understated bars, bartape, debadged rims and black tires.

Color on the frameset is more than enough!

I'd go all black except the frame too. Which is absolutely stunning btw. :)

Groovy!
I agree on black everything, debadged wheels etc. (and cut these handlebar ends please)

I like it for the most part as is. Debadged wheels would definitely be a plus.
