A short while back, I re-read Elviento's thread on building his own bicycle. I was fascinated and contacted him. Here is his carbon fiber bike, the Peregrine.

I ordered two; one BB30 and one standard BSA. The BB30 frame was 1050; the BSA 970; forks were both 350 (frames & forks uncut).

The cable guides built into the frame are very trick.

My build is a Chorus/Record mix with a 52/36 crank.

14.1 lbs with Falco Procella tubular rims.

I dig it. I'm really happy to see how El Viento's interests and dreams have developed into this. Beautiful stuff!

I'm not a fan of integrated seatposts, but I really like this bike. it looks right. Nice to see that stem slammed as well. Cool, well done.

I like it. The seatpost topper is well executed and blends in well.
