That's amazingly beautiful, but why put the tire so close to the seattube?

we all have different appreciations for bicycles. Definitely very beautiful. I would have sourced a little bit more recent SLR brake levers to hide the cables. my taste not yours. As I said well done and enjoy! :beerchug:

Malik,

Were you present when the builder was constructing your frame?

Nothing wrong with cables out top. Wafer thin clearance for rear tyre is cool in my book as I have bike like that too. Lovely build.

Super bike! I like everything about it, including the cable routing. Nice job!

I like it too, except for the wafer thin rear tire clearance. I presume there's adjustment screws on the inner side of the dropouts that you could use to bring out the rear wheel a bit for some added clearance?

And great photos!

Perfection.....really nice. I'd like a geared version with downtube shifters.
