Loving it!

Tan sidewalls would split the look of high wheels. Dont know if it would go well with the rest of the bike.

Gorgeous frame with a perfectly suited build. Well done!

Some 303s would look nice on there, but the MFs are not bad at all.

You've changed the bars as well. What ones are they, they look nice.

Good spot - I realised too late that I'd ordered the wrong size Enve Compacts but I managed to find the super-short reach Zipp Service Corse that I use on my Corretto in my LBS.

Thanks. Like I said, they look like a nice shape. Not feeling the silver tape so much but that is a personal preference. That said, I've never seen it look as good as what it does here so it's probably worth keeping. :beerchug:

Yeah I'm still not sure about the silver tape either, but it looks alright until I find some Lizard Skins DSP in black!

Baum's are still my all time favourite frames for looks, paints, and finish.... :thumbup:

The Madfibers are growing on me. Not quite "sexy Lightweights" but they're starting to carry their own.
Either way, I appreciate your attention to detail in colour matching. Too few people bother lately. :?

That SRAM customisation is great, how did you manage that mate?

Love it. Looks great. Though I gotta say, even though the red touch up helped a lot, I just think SRAM looks unkempt compared to campy. With such a tidy frame SRAM sticks out - either way, great build.

I like the whole package. It does have a very military or industrial look that is excellent.
