I love it. Keep us posted on the build... for some reason it has been a while since I saw a Crumpton in the intro section and I was beginning to suffer from withdrawal symptoms.

Always a beautiful frame...

Stunning! Like the new style graphics. :thumbup:

I really like how that looks, does it have the random carbon piece pattern his SL's are known for or is it a solid color.

It is a satin transparent coat, the blocks are painted of course.

You're going to have to get black and red matching jersey and bibs.

Fantastic job you've done there. Amused by the red logo on the forks (has someone been copying Prada?)

Enjoy; I'm sure you will. Cool looking bike.

Really nice Lionel. Especially like the saddle and bartape touches where you see a little red through the perforations. But, and this really sticks out to me.... the the cabling looks haphazard. Such a nice build with such attention to detail everywhere then the cabling gets all messed up. It may just be the camera angle but the front brake cable housing looks way too short. Also, the derailleur housings look to be of very unequal lengths, the front derailleur cable housing looks way too long and the rear dérailleur cable housing looks too short. I think at this point a redo of the cabling with the same attention to getting things right as was taken with the rest of the bike is in order. And that is a very easy fix. But excellent job overall.
