it looks beatiful! (only critic would be the spacer above the stem :D )

i would love to see the veloflex on the enve 24 too! i think it looks best with the 24 but the brown colour from the 42´s tires looks just right.
nice bike (and i really mean that! ;) )

I had a spacer above the stem, but i felt better with it slammed. I don't think it'll be a problem. I hope not :wink:

Thanks for the compliments though. It took forever to be built, but I'm really happy with it. Coming from my 15+ lb Time, it's amazing how much you can feel the drop in weight. I can't wait to see what the Crumpton feels like.

+1 on that the brown colour looks great on it. It's a really beautiful bike, enjoy it!

That's awesome! Worth the wait! Can't wait to see how the Crumpton looks now, will have to go some way to beat this...

Another vote for the Enve 45s w/brown Veloflex: tres classy and functional. They add just a bit of eye-catching pazazz IMO. I can also image switching to a KCNC cobweb set of chainrings and perhaps adding some color to a tuned RD, QR and chainring bolts...

I like it; looks purpose built with the slack STA to facilitate the use of a zero-setback seatpost and still achieve an appropriate amount of saddle setback, and the taller headtube to put the handlebar where it needs to be without resorting to a spacer tower.

The weight is not too shabby either :thumbup:

Niice Jeff!!

I notice the front wheel is slightly higher than the rear in the pic, so slope is slightly less than ot appears (the reverse for drop), non?

Did Mattias's bearings work out for you? How do you like the SiSls, they should be about twice as stiff as your Ax cranks :D?

The bearings from Mattias are on eBay because I didn't need them since I went with a true bb30 crank. The bearings were designed to take the AX BSA and adapt them to a bb30.

The cranks feel stiff, but I'm having some issues with the narrow stance (low q-factor). I have to play a little with my cleat position. Im getting a little pain on the outside of my ankles. I think I need to slide my cleats inwards a little to increase the q-factor. I haven't had too much I've to play with things yet.

Very nice. I am wondering why the shifters are higher than the saddle or is that due to the pictures?
