Here's my Stinner Gibraltar Steel for 2018.
It has custom geometry, approximately size 52 stack and size 54 reach.
Paint is a custom Pearled Turquoise with Oil Slick logos. The pearl brings out a bright green in the paint under direct light.
Bike is done, but might be switching to 120mm stem and King Cages, either Ti or SS.

Here's a full list of the build:

- Stinner Gibraltar Steel Custom Frame
- ENVE Road Fork
- Chris King i7 Headset
- S-Works Shallow Bend Handlebar 42cm
- S-Works Stem 110mm
- S-Works Carbon 20mm Offset Seatpost
- S-Works Romin Evo Saddle 155mm
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 Di2 Groupset
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 11-28T Cassette
- Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 172.5 Crankset 52/36
- LOOK Keo 2 Blade Pedals
- 2017 ENVE SES 4.5 Clinchers
- Chris King R45 Hubs
- Continental GP4000S II 25mm Tires
- Supacaz Bar Tape
- S-Works Carbon Rib Cages
- Shimano Dura Ace 9100 BB
- F3 FormMount Garmin Mount
- Garmin Edge 520

Weight - 7.48kg or 16.5lb w/ pedals, cages, Garmin mount

Been going back and forth on the cockpit, ENVE, PRO, Deda, S-Works. Settled on S-Works (for now) because its light, looks great in gloss finish, and amazing value. I would prefer a -12° stem but they're not available in Canada :( let me know what you think.

Thanks

Looks great. S-Works components are a good choice, not too bulky like an Enve stem would be on this build and very subtle branding.

Beautiful bike! Just not a fan of the bottle cages, since they call too much attention (maybe Mandibles?), but it's only personal taste.
All the rest is very clean. ;)

That looks really good, it reminds me of my Speedvagen but looks better in some ways !

You might want to try an S-Works Multi Stem that you can adjust the degree angle on, I used one to match my TT , I found -14 degree to be a perfect match.

I don't disagree, they definitely draw attention, but I actually like the look. Mandibles are great and usually my go to carbon cage, but they almost grip too well and destroy bottles. I also just took everything off my S-Works Tarmac :P

Yea I considered a few other stem options but I honestly don't NEED to get that much lower. I also love the gloss black finish of this generation S-Works stem.

Also, did you get Speedvagen recently from another forum? Gonna get a Speedvagen one day! Your's looks great !

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.

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!

Yes I got my Speedvagen not long ago from another forum.

I also had my eye on a used Stinner that Stinner was selling, Jeremy over there was a great guy to deal with. In the end the Stinner was a bit to big for me.
