usually I ride wheels ive built myself, but these were really pretty cheap and im sure a little faster than my old race wheels.

normal wheels for this bike are some H+Son archtype's in hard grey ano' with some white industries t11s in black with black spokes, but its race day tomorrow :)

Beautiful bike! :thumbup:
Just a question: why repainted? because the removed logos were underneath clearcoat?

Very nice! I've been eyeing these up on CRC. See the signature
yes, but how much does it weigh?

Personal preference but I think deep looks better imo.

Why did Principia stop making these frames? They look great! They're right up there with Klein. Good-looking bike, especially for a tall rider. I approve!! :thumbup:
