3t stem would match it nicely. Very nice frame

Stylish frame.

Are you choosing between those wheels or you have them at your disposal?

How have you found your neutrons?

I have Fulcrum Zero's already and am looking at getting either a set of open pros built up exactly like your with record hubs and probably dt spokes or the neutron ultras as a tough reliable training wheel that I can use for years.

The neutrons are great.
I had Open Pro's before (non ceramic ones), built on Powertap hubs with heavy duty spokes. They rode nicely. If you have the fulcrums, a set of 32 spoked box rims might be a nice addition. The record hubs are sweet. I'll post some pics of them when I finish building them up. I am using CX-rays black with black nipples. so.. all black, black tires too.

Koen,

I envy you ... :x ... :beerchug: !!! Got the last one at PBK, or elsewhere (same paint scheme) ?

Make shure you provide plenty of pics, and ride report.


If you're looking for parallel stem/top tube angle, you'll have to go with a 10 degrees stem (8 degrees might look fine too). I have a Pro vibe and it's nice with the (same geometry) alu frame (kind of triangular shaped tubes).

Louis :)

Koen, again proving you're a man of great taste when it comes to bikes.\

This is going to be a ripper!

:D
I think I should get it in a couple days.

@Louis: thanks for the stem tip! not from PBK, it was a showroom model at cyfac france. The people from cyfac belgium and france have been great to communicate with. They even went as far as to setup a frame of the same size with the saddle and measurements I use on my current bike to see what it looks like!

Some day, I will get a Cyfac! I came close to one last season from an unnamed rider on an unnamed French Team who rode custom Cyfac frames disguised as a bike from the Team manufacturer. Super stealth. One of the great manufacturers...

Got news from Cyfac it will be shipped early next week so.. another week to clean parts and finish my wheels.
I'll post pics as soon as it comes in. The paint scheme is standard #7, but inversed.

I am thinking to go no-logo black on the rest of the build, Means I'd put the Record brakes on instead of the TRP's and a black SLR instead of the white one (got both). Black stem (alloy, not glossy).

What do you guys think ?

Louis, do you have a pic of your Cyfac with 10 degree stem ? What size is your frame ?
