Awesome. They only thing I would like is a tapered HT. Is that possible?
Most "innovations" in cycling are solutions for non-existing problems.

Hi Mick. Thanks for the kind words.
It's a 56cm frame weighing 950g.
The tubes are custom rolled to my spec by a dedicated tube company in the UK using unidirectional high strength fibre prepreg.
The BB shell is PF30 format made in-house to the correct spec for zero creaks. The BB shell is a complete tube with a good wall thickness rather than the thin partial flanges that I see on some frames.
Press fit done correctly is reliable and quiet.

The calliper mount is flat mount format and I'm using a 12mm thru-axle. The rear hose enters at the top of the down tube and is internal all the way to the chain stay but doesn't go through the BB shell. It's also fully guided and sealed internally for quick assembly and to avoid water ingress.

Cheers!
