I have one but I am also selling them:

Peregrine's have been ISP models but are transitioning to a traditional albeit proprietary seat-post model. I raced mine in the Georgia Grand Prix omnium and some local training races.

If you want to know more give me a buzz: Chris at Maggie Rose's Bicycle Shop 904-636-0544.

The bike is very good!

Hey, everyone, I have a Falco Peregrine HM version, I got in Oct. last year. I really love it. It's actually quite comfortable but also stiff enough for me. The frame has many clever design details that you can see only when you are close to the bike. Frame weigh 923 grams, which is not as light as Evo or R5CA, but I don't live in the mountain so it is fine. Built with some homemade G3 wheels, it was 6.7kg with pedals and Garmin 800 computer, and with Madfiber clinchers it's 6.5kg. Funny how the MF decals look purple in the sunlight.

When I built the bike, I tried a mix of Sram and Fulcrum/Campy group, with a Giant stem, which is really strong.

The short coming of the bike is the seatpost is quite difficult to set up. Also ISP is difficult to travel with. Another thing to be careful with is if you turn the fork too much, it will knock into the down tube and get a scratch.

My last bike was a Trek and a NEO. I like it much more than the NEO.

Here is a discussion I started in a Chinese bike discussion board.

When built with Madfibers, both frame and wheels have large checked pattern. I know many people dont' like this pattern but I do.

923g for an ISP frame... that isn't that bad is it? That would that standardize to around ~750g for the frame?

Also, couldn't help but to notice, that's a weird way to route a rd cable, is it supposed to be done like that?

Let me address that question -- we make these so we may be biased.

The ISP adds around 40 grams so without ISP it's more or less 880-ish.

The rear cable routing is intended that way and it saves roughly 100-120mm of cable and also results in less bend in the cable. The turn at the seat cluster is a less abrupt angle than under the BB for traditional routing, and the turn at the rear dropout is also less than traditional routing as it starts from 1 o'clock instead of 4 o'clock, turning counterclockwise. Works great. We have a couple hundred satisfied customers but I'd like to see more on ww, so pls excuse me for blowing our own horn a bit.

The following are some of our users' rides, in addition to Chris/Yashnoon's. But there are a lot more at http://www.falcobike.com/index.php/falc ... =gallery_c

@elviento, do you have yourself, or any costumer, assembled a frame with Di2 yet?
Any photo?

Hi guys, very interested in your saker frameset! just wondering what made you go with a bsc bottom bracket on this frame? i have hollowgrams on my cannondale and that is a big consideration when purchasing a new frame, i think many of your customers would be coming from bb30 frames.
