Very nice! I'd like to see some bigger/close up shots. This frame would definitely be on my shortlist if I ever replace my Supersix.

Looks great, but defiantly need some scales this is WW after all.
How do the tyres feel/ride, was looking at these myself, but would like to know what they weigh. !!

Cheers. Thats good to know as ive got the Corsa CX waiting to be mounted when my Contis need changing. Vittoria's always seem way over the stated weight though.!!!
