It looks very clean. I would like to see the cable solution to battery and fd.
What size is the frame?

Wow, that CSLM colour way is beautiful, in the top two colour schemes in my opinion

Love it. Having trouble with the cages though. They don't really go with anything. Betting for some (matte?) black Arudel Mandibles.

Very interesting and impressive build!
How did you manage to convert a non-electric C59 to electric? Specifically, how did you mount the battery? Did you drill the holes yourself, and how safe is that, vs did the frameset have to go back to the factory?

Isn't the fairing on the bottom of the bottom bracket shell supposed to be where the batteries are mounted on a C59?

You drilled yourself the down tube and probably the seat tube as well?
I don`t have the eggs for that...
Do any cable rattle inside the frame?

LOL...well...where do I start? The bottle cages are actually KING titanium cages and they've replaced already with Arundel carbons. The holes were drilled at a local bike shop but before we did we spoke to CALFEE DESIGNS about how to do it without messing anything up. Its actually pretty simple. I never planned on doing EPS groupo so i bought the frame as a traditional cable pull bike. When i started on the build my friend who owns the bike shop asked if i wanted to do EPS, since we were doing a slow build and buying only the best goodies i decided on doing EPS. We only drilled 3 holes (down tube, seat tube, and chain stay) it was very simple and strait forward. We ran all the cables inside the tubes and it was fine. I weight 220lbs (100kilos) and i ride as hard. No issues whatsoever and it now has around 1200miles on it.

I've updated the bike...i'll post up new pics.
