I need to get a new camera! It's a Gothica with Ultegra (CK BB), Tune on DT, Ltd Doric & Ergonova, Pro Arx:

WOW!!! Nice stable !!! :beerchug:

The new Gothica doesn't have a tube to tube construction now ? Looks like an Absolu without the ISP...

Still tube to tube, just less overtly lugged now. Basically an Absolu with added comfort (you can order the Gothica with an ISP as well).

+1 for a nice stable. Much better pics!
Louis all Cyfac carbons are tube to tube regardless of the model

Love the detail of the gold, not 100% with the iLinks gold/white/gold I think one or other would be better but just my personal style
No complaints with the original wheels Tune hubs, eyelet rims, looks like butted spokes and swish nips
...OK I admit there are no complaints with the LW's either 8)
What is the weight?

I love the look of the grey Ultegra with the grey frame, well done!

Still got the Baum, still not (properly) fixed, still not ridden the Baum yet! I can manage about 4hrs now before the shoulder gives way, the Baum is now my incentive to repair myself!

Have to say that the Baum is going to have to ride very well indeed - the Cyfac is only marginally heavier and has a fantastic ride feel, so 'solid' and 'all-of-a-piece' but supple and smooth; its a real pleasure to ride (makes the BMC feel like poo to ride!).

And the winner is:

Revl the Hive (pretty much by default as I don't like the feel or power of the Neg G's and I can't get enough clearance on the M5's!).

Lovely brakes, and lovely bike!
