Hmmm, what do those three tube-like things on the crank arms remind me of? And yeah, I know which came first.

I think they complement the white lugs rather nicely.

Beautiful bike.

But... (I can't stop myself), what does it weigh?

The cages are King...

The H Plus Son rims are slick. Much neater in person than when Madcow described them and sent a picture... They're low profile box looking, pretty oldschool. but the finish is VERY nice and they have a 23 width. Coupled with the 25c Vittopria evo's and I'm thinking the ride here is going to be insanely smooth (and would be very smooth on darn near any bike, not just this one...)

Fairwheel have em.

Very interesting project...
Don't like the crankset either but we need better pics anyway.

Agreed, some more pictures would be awesome. details and a profile for starters... looks so nice! and personally I really like the white, I saw the hubs first and did a double take then saw the lugwork and it was all good.

Hi,

I'd love to see a version of that steed with all the cream painted parts done in steel cold white (you know white with a drop of blue in it).

De gustibus et coloribus etc....

Awesome project though. :shock:

Ciao, ;)
