Very nice but why ultegra? At least sram force would look better.

Hey :beerchug: looks good. :thumbup:
How do you like the ride? Comparable to other frames?

I hope you are getting some miles in with that saddle and you aren't still scared of breaking it :wink:

To mr. Jeff aka Mr.Gum

It's actually my first carbon frame. I heard from there's who owns this frame, it's a stiff one. :thumbup:

And that saddle has been getting abused for at least 100mls/week commute , hahaha...
Some of my buddies were jealous with its weight. :mrgreen:

Looks very nice. Very short stem though... how is the handling?

I just noticed the stem...hmmm... that length equals wrong frame size IMHO.
