don't see too many of these on the forum so i am happy to share these images. the frame arrived today in the post. it is a stock 56 size, weight is around 1850gms.
first impression is the absolutely perfect quality and precision of the metal and how thin it is. the welds disappear and all the cuts are smooth and perfectly shaped, like it couldn't be made with someones hands
i really hope you like the pics. not sure how this is going to be built-up. probably campag 11 speed. definitely tubs - probably FMB to start with. i am really going to take my time with this build as there is no rush since the weather is crap in the UK.
I really like parlee and crumpton hand builds so maybe one day i will own one of those but for now, this should be the ticket, along with a restoration trek 5200 i posted in november http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=78187&start=15.
ideas for builds appreciated. its no weightweenie though.

Still, looking forward to see it built up, perhaps I'll change my opinion Somehow I think this will look good with deep carbon rims (or am I really applying for the guillotine now?)
Personally, I think an all alloy Athena groupset would look awesome with it. I would play up the theme of classic materials and modern technology. Although, it might be difficult to put a lower tier group on such an incredible frame.

Once this is built up, please consider having a semi- or full professional photographer document it. Really.
Only then will these fools be convinced.
