WOW!

You need to flip the stem front clamp. Is upside down unless you meant to do that.

it's always a little difficult to build up a classic frame with modern parts. i like the idea of that classic look with up-to-date technology of the components. photography is well done, respect! :thumbup:

however there are several parts that do not quite fit the frame. first of all the stem is way too "fat". i would definitely go for a custom painted lugged steel stem with polished lugs, such as llewellyn (quite pricey though):

Image

the bottle cages and the whole groupset are quite plump too. it's the latest technology, i know, it looks great on a carbon fibre frame, but on this frame with slim steel tubes, it looks a little misplaced/overdressed.

please, do not get me wrong, it still is a fantastic bike. all its components are fantastic if you view them alone. but alltogether, i see room for making the whole build a little more harmonious (= heavier though).

anyway, enjoy your sweet ride and thanks for this great photography! and don't care too much about my personal opinion!

OH. MY. GOD.

It's not often I see a bike and just think "that is perfect", but... that is perfect. Awesome, simply awesome.

I also think it is very well done! I think that a master x-light with modern components is totally acceptable.
There is only 2-3 things I would change.

1. Chris king headset. It may be the best but a campagnolo record one would be the most appropriate.
2. Saddle. It looks too "modern" not that classy. A flite kit carbonio would be great (and lighter).
3. The stem has big and bold graphics. Something from 3ttt would be nicer maybe.
4. Not this bottlecage. Try a campy chorus or record.

A great bike nonetheless!
