Very nice build, congrats!

How come you didn't decide for "di2 friendly" handlebar?
That junction box under the stem is the only piece, which IMHO destroys the perfection.

I know that but I liked a lot the feel and ergonomics of the 3t bar which I decided to sacrifice the looks for the practicallity

You can use a bar end junction box with wires outside, here an example: viewtopic.php?t=153191&start=30#p1424003

Took me 5 months to built it fully customized from top to bottom, It's not a factory it's a family who speciallized in building masterpieces and are behind the scenes of major bike brands. I add a price list what they send me from the beginning.
Mine cost me........ //cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5dbede29b25 ... %20Kit.pdf
Thanks & congrats on a beautiful build :beerchug:

Their price for Spirit Frame is good too.

Have you weighed your build?

My pleasure ! And if you do it, you can also use heatshrink gain to wrap wires together, here a pretty good example: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=158383&start=30#p1517115

This looks absolutely stunning, love the fact that it was built to your specs individually! If only I had the patience to wait 8 months for one, maybe in a few years!

Yeah; they are good folks.
The folks behind the Cinelli XCr, if I am not mistaken.

They sent me a polo shirt when they built my frameset a couple years ago. I had Blacksmith Cycle facilitate the build for me. Mine took about 8 months to get. Lots of holidays and the Max Columbus tubeset was in back order for a bit.

It was well worth the wait.
They do way more than that, and not only for Cinelli.
It's a little company very close to my place but what I love is that they are very open to try to new things and ideas from costumers.
