Beautiful!!!!!! Hows the ride? How much extra did enigma charge to do the intergrated seatpost and custom paint?

Thats the nicest thing I've seen come out of their factory!

Very special frame indeed!
I would prefer it with normal CT2 chainrings. I would remove the enve decals also.

Never buying another enigma again after 'warranty issues'.

Paint job is stunning, and like the build. Was this custom built buy Mark?
Can you ever have to many bikes?

Thanks for comments and advices. I ordered black Q-Rings, but I can't install normal Q-Rings without OCP3.

I think this frame is stiffer than other steel frames becase of oversized tubes. In fact, around BB is as stiff as my previous Ridely Noah.
Optional extended seattube adds 125GBP and paint of 3 colours add 80GBP. I designed myself, so I paid for only one additional colour.

What's happened? This frame was build by Mark.

Beautiful build. I love the paint job - you did good there!

What are the box section rims you're running?
