Hi guys,
here is the bike I just assembled for a customer. Olivier loves bikes with a "different" look, this is why we opted for a road disc frame, Bike Ahead Composites wheels, and Rotor Uno Hydraulic derailleurs. The wheels were painted by Olivier from Deco-bike.com to match the frame design. The Pinarello seapost has been modified to save some weight. The result is a "different" bike, I guess this special look won' t please everybody. Personally I love it, rarely I have been so proud of a bike I just assembled.

Personally I love it and its a very integrated look in what are some pretty eclectic pieces. The only concern Id have is youd have to be a bloody good rider to back up such a "statement" bike.

Visually, one of the most coherent bikes (not talking about boring full black bikes) seen in a long time, fantastic work on the wheels! This being said, a bit surprised by the weight, probably "disc effect".
Curious on the biturbo, do they make the same noise the other trispokes, 3Gs and older full carbon wheels?

Edit: initially missed the stem... It's really odd (I don't comment on the saddle, if it fits the owner that's the good one)

Wow! You really nailed this build. No one is going to walk past that bike without having to stop and take it all in for awhile. Nice job!
One thing, nothing to do with the build... but the photos... A couple good shots with the chain on the big ring/smallest cog would do wonders.

I'll just say that it's quite polarizing. :?

First time I do like a disc bike. Well done. What's the total price including custom paint if not confidential?

Terrible. Seriously. For now #1 on the list "worse looking Pina ever" .

Wheels, saddle & stem doesn't fit completely, to not say ruin the look. it looks like ...this:

It is different looking bike.

But still I don't get why someone wants "brand" their wheels same as a frame. Tbh that makes them look cheap and not stylish.

"different looking bike" ... fully agree. But only if you meant "ugly"

BTW it sounds like " different kind of intelligence" :mrgreen:

Ugly is probably too harsh but just not my thing. Without paint on wheels and normal looking stem would do alot. And never liked those saddles but I understand if it works for rider.

I like....more to the point, I admire those who have the courage (and $$$) to do something like this. If this was an off the shelf F8 with say 404's, most comments here would be 'boring', or 'just a standard F8'......if the owner wanted to 'tone down' the look a bit, simply changing the wheels would do this......but I say 'well done'.....'buy what you like, build what you like'....and also 'well done' to the OP for the build.....not a straight forward assembly.
