Malik - great looking frame. Especially like the fork. It gives the frame a classic flow to it.

Lovely frame that Rytcharski! Nice touch on the rear dropouts. Isn't Columbus Spirit a bit too light for serious CX use though?


Rear dropouts are from xcr. 8)

Well i'm not a serious CX rider.. so i think this will be fine ;-)

I'm not pretty sure this is a 100% spirit :shock: Seat tube is 31,7

Frame weight - 2,050kg.
Fork - uncut - 900g

First, my Cielo Racer SE, it's KVA Stainless, but still steel! Currently wearing some King R45 wheels with Vittoria EVO SC instead of the Mavic R-SYS SLR's and the headset has been switched to a King Ti unit.

Here's my old commuter, IF Club Racer SSR. Again, stainless.

And then there's this Independent Steel Club Racer that belongs to a friend.

if you're wondering why all the proportions seem off with the chainrings and space between seat tube and wheel...

Its because its a 1992 bike based on 26" wheels! Road Geometry on 26" wheels

This is a build for my wife who's 5'4" and wanted a traditional looking road bike. But this is actually an "all around-er" bike. There is enough clearance for MTB tires, and its currently on 28c slicks.

I was riding my Steel Pinarello Opera until a few years ago when a car turned the frame into a pretzel....sad day

Your Cielo is stunning! How big are those Challenge tires? 27? 30? I know they make some pretty big clinchers, and clearance looks very generous on your bike. Super cool!

@ GASer
a. I don't think the saddle color is successful. I would prefer white or black. Something more classy also like a regal or rolls or...
b. Deda makes polished alu handlebars. Why choose carbon?
c. I am not a fan of the medium profile wheels for this bike. They will make the ride harsher for no reason. A pair of Ambrosio F20 or some NOS tubular rims would be better IMHO.
