Very nice ride! The Spec kit looks great on the frame....skinny and shiny to match the steel tubes. Looking forward to hearing more about the ride feel and the build, including: bare frame weight? tubing? Wishing u nicer weather so u can enjoy ur new ride?

Wow. Beautiful color. Is this steel or Ti?

Now I wish I had painted my custom Ti frame. I was worried about the weight of the paint but the paint sure makes the entire bike pop. My bike looks boring in comparison to yours.
This ones steel. The pearled turquoise so looks even better in person IMO. Direct light on the pearl finish brings out a really cool bright green tint.

I love raw Ti with black ENVE fork and debated doing that myself for my Mosaic, but decided to get that one painted as well. I'll be posting that one shortly too!

Stunning Stinner!! Love the subtle paint scheme.
However I would prefer slim steel bottle cages.
S-Works cockpit looks fine but you could also have considered Fizik cockpits as they are also very subtle and not too expensive.

16.5lb = 7.4kg metric? Not too bad for a modern steel bike.

Please more detailled shots!
I'm debating ordering another set of King Cages. I have a set of the Ti cages on my Mosaic and I love them.
Considered Fizik, but the logos are a little much for me and I wanted to avoid any squared off stems on bike with all round tubing.

More to come !

Looking forward too more pics.
Unfortunately I've never seen a Stinner in the flesh as I live in continental Europe.

About the cockpit choice: a painted stem and bar in the same color (as the frame as you see on most Speedvagens, Stinner, ....) would also be nice.

Nice ! Raw ti is sweet but I love painted metal frames. What frame are you painting?

do you have any more pictures ? it could give me a really good idea for my stinner.

I'm still debating between wheel depth ! I really like this size but not sure if it's to big !

I have a set of ENVE SES 3.4 clinchers on my Mosaic. Anything smaller than a medium-ish frame I would recommend something like a 3.4 depth. But I really like how my 4.5 look on this Stinner.
