Those are the most poorly wrapped bars I've seen in a while.

What wheels are you planning? Surely the rest of bike deserves better than “gifted junk”

I've no plan to change the wheels yet, since the bike merely used for holiday commuter. These creepy wheels somewhat limited the bike capabilities to go wild (it is astonishing fast and light, just like riding on air) with a secured alu rim for better control.

This build seems somewhat confused.
Superlight everything.
except heavy "aero" bars. agricultural wheelset. Horrible bar end acoutrements. And as mentioned that bartape job is woeful, there is a full 1 inch gap with clamp on view.
So much potential.

The bar is not that heavy, it simply shared another xxx integrated bar module. The bar arguments may a bit weighy, at least I found this bike is adequate light and very good for leisure ride...Image

Since you mentioned that AX was your commuter, picture taken on one of my commutes to Londn, sorry couldn't resist ;)

Shame as it is beautiful frame with lots of interesting stuff on it. But oh boy this bar tape is a huge put-off.

What are your plans for Swift frame?

This mix of super light, super expensive parts and even use of Titanium springs and such - together with such a $160,- wheelset that has 2kg! (https://www.bikewagon.com/oval-concepts ... e-take-off), and that handlebar that has this little gadgets, and than the already mentioned horrible horrible bartabe is a real shocker :shock: What a waste, such a pity :?
