It's an OEM item that I source from TW. Thanks for the compliment.

A dark metallic green with matt lacuqer, black graphics and silver details. It's subtle and has a shimmering deep green in sunlight.
Built for disc brakes and eTap.

I don't think I showed this one yet. It's my own bike that I've been riding since the spring.
This used a new tube set and has internal mechanical gear cables.

That paint is unbelievable. Reminds me of some of my favorite Pegoretti's.

The frames have a full guide tube for simple installation of internal cables.

Here's a tube set cut and mitred to size. The BB shell has holes for the electronic shift wires.

A final dry fit in the fixture before the first bond is made.

What kind of tubing do you use?

The internal guide tube is a polymer material.

Jean-Claude Van Damme I like that colour!

I didn't get a photo of the clamp before it left, it's a wedge inside the top tube.
