Hi everybody,

here's my new Pavo.
I had an opportunity on this new frameset.
The geo seemed to fit me well, I like the design (shape and colors) and heard lots of good things, so I gave it a try.

Wicked! Agree, Tricons suit it, stock up on spare spokes though, I've seen a few go...

I'm waiting for new silver skewers.
Also thought getting rid of the red decals on the Tricons.
What do you think?

I have always had a sweet spot for Simplons... and this is no exception.

Throw on a set of high profile carbon clinchers... and it will be rocking!

Congrats on your new Pavo! Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed my Pavos! It's is certainly one of the best frames out there.

Thanks all.

First impression is great.
Very stable bike, yet quick and responsive.
Stiff enough (for my enormous überpower) and comfortable.
