Very cool bike and build! Definitely not typical and still really light.

Really liking the build, especially with the fork. Many English bikes seem to be equipped with Enve forks, but they often look a bit much for those thin tubes.

I read along with this build and wasn't too sure what the outcome would be, but the end result is stunning. Thanks for sharing the process.

The tiny seatstays don't usually do it for me, but I quite like the look of this bike. Only bit of criticism, and it's a personal pet peeve is that the bar tape is uneven. More bar showing on the left side.

I noticed that in the photos as well. If it doesn't hinder my hand position, I won't worry about it until it is time to replace the bar tape.
