Yeah - regular changes like this are fairly typical for me.

Not having a dig. It's a beautiful machine, and like seeing all the iterations.

To me looks best with campy/hed wheels.

What's the next frame gonna be ?

All good :beerchug:

If I can sell this, the next frame will be a Ti Eriksen disc. It’s ready and waiting (it’s a cancelled customer order that happens to fit me perfectly), but I need to sell this to raise the funds.

Great looking bike. I'm in the market for a new one myself.....whats your verdict on the Altum?!? (i'm basically after an all-round 3 season bike that can do a bit of everything - club runs, sportives, the odd euro mountain trip). Any views appreciated!

Perfect bike for your needs I reckon - it's one of the most well-mannered bikes I've ridden (I've ridden a lot of bikes); and it'll serve all of the applications you mention with aplomb.

Saw your bike on CycleExif too - such a ridiculously good looking machine.

Many thanks. Where did you get yours from? I’m after an Altum-R - a bit cheaper but I’m not sure they do it anymore.

They haven’t done the R for 2yrs now. I got mine direct from Parlee.

Would be interested to know if there is any $ diff between ordering direct vs. using shop for purchase.
