I've been riding this bike now for one year - and I still love it. It's a totally different bike than the Scott Foil, but it's so comfy on the cobblestone rides. With the Hyperon Ultra Two wheels it rides like a dream, and I use them when riding hard is not an option - just cruising witht the wife or some friends in Flandres or near the coastal area where we live.

There has been a few changes since the initial build:

* 3T ergonova LTD bar
* Deda Superleggera seatpost now with Berk Lupina Innegra ( picture with UD carbon Lupina )
* Campagnolo SRM 50/39 works great with Stronglight outer ring
* Riesel design topcap carbon

These look amazing for the money, is that a Medium?

I'm waiting on a disc brake version of this frame, so I can fit some spare parts I pulled from my CX bike on it. I absolutely love it!

Great build! What size headset does it take?
I only train on days that end with "y".

@ Monkeyfudger - It's a size Medium.
@ AttacknowAttackoften - Headset is a Cane Creek 40 series.


Now it has the Berk Composites Lupina Innegra saddle

This thread has convinced me to pick this frame up. I'll be a little less trick than this, running Athena and the Deda parts I have around already, but could turn into a project bike.

One question: Which specific Cane Creel headset are you using? I'm having touble finding the correct size for the frame which I think is 1 1/8 to 1.5 tapered?

You can find all the info on the Planet x website for that fame if you're struggling.

FSA headset for it is £25 just look at customers also bought.........

I’m tempted by these again but the geometry seems “off” somewhere in the chart, if you get a chance could you do me a favour and measure the reach from the centre BB to centre of top of headset and axle to top of headset height? Cheers!!

What size would you most likely get? Mine is a large (57), if measuring it helps

I don't understand the second measurement. Do you mean the front wheel axle?

Probs a small looking at the two chart but the medium doesn’t seem to look as tall as it would suggest.

Second measurement is from front axle to top of headset to give an indication of stack in an easier less *f##k* up able measurement.

Cheers.
