Columbus MAX frames are always sweeeeet! Cool to see you also choose to go with a steel fork, instead of a carbon one. +1 on the external headset.

Might I ask what you paid for the frame(set)?

Lovely bike, nice shade of blue too!
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

I love it! Already have a master x-light but I think I would like a second steel bike.

@Malik
superb built, love it!! :thumbup:
a mix of retro modern. modern with its internal headset (looks clean), retro with it seat lugs, and most important Max tubing.
i presume it's fillet brazed as well..

Very nice. And very interesting considering the price. But the homepage was kind of a mess for non english speaking.

WTF this can't be true????!!!!!!!!!

This is such a low price :|

Can't believe it.

2nd hand market is about 1k€ and that doesn't include well-known builders.

Agree on your 3 sentences :wink:
It's very interesting bike, and the Rychtarski's page is messy indeed,even for polish speaking person!
Heaving seen Malik's bike I decided to go the same route. Especially looking at well known steel frame builders and their prices. This one seems to be a real bargain.

:lol: It's true.
For me well-known builders have prices from out of space (pay close attention, i'll take your brain do another dimension :))
i'm glad that in Poland we've got builders like Mr. Rychtarski.

It seems like a great deal. But the entire thread smells a bit of advertisement as it's Maliks first post.

Anyone have more info about the framebuilder?
