That frame is beautiful!

I think black chain rings would suit it better though.

My rule of thumb, anything that can be silver should be silver.

Already liked the frame and I like the bike even more! Just don't like the chainrings. Don't the color is wrong, just think the looks are wrong.

Great bike, loving the white hoods!
Wondering how much a nice steel fork weighs these days, any chance you could put it on a scale? Or maybe just an estimation?

Hey that's cool, the fork looks fantastic with the svelte tubing and slight bend. Bet it rides superb.
I was just wondering, since I'm pondering a steel fork for my gravel bike build.

love this!! real classy with the file treads. I hope you plan on changing out those keo's :) The new looks would be a nice touch, or just get a pair of older xt or xtr. looks great. The fork is very interesting how the legs bow out to allow for enough pad clearance and the pull back in to that narrow road crown.
You should post this over at Velocipede Salon.

I'm still in big shock how good this fork is. Fu**ing amazing. Comfortable and really stiff in the same time.

I am seriously considering getting a Rychtarski frame built myself, but I can't seem to find any contact information or a website anywhere online :| .

Would you mind helping me out to get in contact with Rychtarski?
