Here is my custom KVA MS2 stainless steel beauty built by Alchemy for Blacksmith Cycle...
Frame: KVA MS2 stainless, graphics designed by me
Fork: Enve 2.0 - simple, stiff and light
Group: Shimano Di2 with Icarus hidden battery and Mini-USD charger plug
Wheels: Tune Schwarzbrenner Tubular wheels
Bar and Stem: 3T Rotundo LTD with Tune 4-bolt
Saddle: Tune Kom Vor full carbon
ISP capper: Tune Cappy
Cages: Arundle Dave-O
Weight: 14.1 lbs in a very tall size
This bike was actually t-boned by a d1ck-head on a commuter, and I'm lucky to be in one piece. Even luckier that Alchemy was able to replace the top-tube for me, which was taco'd, and get me back on the road. I've since switched to a Pro Vibe carbon front end, since the 3T was destroyed, but otherwise she remains pretty much as is. Great thing about stainless is you can ride all winter - Toronto winter is the real deal - without any worry about the finish getting ruined.
I am seriously impressed by the stiffness and ride quality...much snappier than any steel bike I had ever ridden previously. Geometry was my own design, so I basically looked at all the bikes I've enjoyed in the past and came up with my ideal numbers. All in, I have been very pleased. Given that we sell these framesets for under $3-k with custom geometry in my shop, our customers have had good things to say about the overall package. As you can see, I am really the ideal custom geometry candidate...this bike has a 55 cm top-tube with a seat-tube and head-tube befitting a 61 cm bike. I am weird, but this bike fits me to a T.
