What do you use the bike for- group rides, tri, etc?

I'm all for deep wheels but those are a bit crazy depending on the use. Some of the more aero frame look odd with low profile but this may be too much...

Hey, somebody did steel your cassette and chain. Not a big fan of loud decals on wheels but it works with the rest of your bike.

The bold wheel decals work brilliantly with that frame. The colours and font match amazingly well. The overall effect is strangely harmonious. A superb build. Very well done.

No chance of people asking what brand the wheels and frame are!! :wink:

Loud and proud with those big F9s!

Nice colour co-ordination and with the F4s I think a very nice looking rig.

How do you find the F4s vs the F9s? Are they both tubs?

I had two TCRs and always found them too wooden but sounds like you enjoy this machine.

Nice work

The f9's is not original,they are Diabolic,a small company from Italy,but they are more light(110gr/set) then FFWD.
When ride them,on a flat road,I feel like.....................this is all you can? Keep pushing!
Great wheels.
The f4's is only for mountain.

Whats custom about your bike?
Looks awesome with the F4's, and weird with the F9's IMO. If you could get the computer out on front, the chain on the big ring, the driveside of the crank to follow the chainstays and the bike outside infront of a wall, it would look so much better.

I think by 'custom' he means he built it, didn't buy it spec'd from the LBS.

Nice ride!
