I'm with Cyfac but new to Weightweenies. I wanted to show off a Cyfac build similar to what our friends at Pez did. This has been updated with BB30 (we can do Shimano Press-Fit as well as a regular english-threaded one) and a tapered 1 1/2" x 1 1/8" fork. It's my own personal bike so I also have the pride of ownership that goes with it. I elected to have a two-tone French-flag inspired motif with a matte finish. At first I expected the matte finish to prove difficult to keep clean but it actually shows dirt and grime less than my other bikes with a brilliant clear-coat. And, some Armor-all style wipes work great for a quick cleaning!
It's shown here with some Lightweight Special Edition wheels and came in at 13.4 lbs (sans pedales). That's with Dura Ace 7900 with FSA BB30 crank, 3T Team Carbon Bar, 3T Team alloy stem, Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio saddle.
I hope you like it!
When you say you're with Cyfac, you mean you work at the shop, or you own a Cyfac bike ?
It's super to add another "artisan" to the members then... to the forum.
Any insights on the "stealth" Absolu Cyfac made for the Capo Cycling calendar (I saw that somewhere on some site) ? I'd like to see MORE PICTURES of that one, plus the detailed finishing steps!!!

I think an actual Cyfac representative, no?
Considering the username, the slips of French in the description, and exclusivity of production?

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
Better than mine
Does anyone know why sloping frames look more sloping from the NDS side ? It's weird but I keep noticing it on sloping bikes I had too. Optical illusion of some sort
