Forgot how rad the Obermeyers on Veloflex carbons were. Also brings the system weight down to 6.68kg. Not bad for a non weight focussed steel build.

Finish is flawless- construction, paint, everything. I would say one of the best steel bike builders in the world.

Love it! Especially the wheels, something about slim tubes and shallow carbon rims is just awesome :thumbup:

The handlebar set up and the grey bits on the forks/stays though...
