A couple pics from a Southern California vintage ride this morning courtesy Klasse.

A few build changes, notably the wheels and tires.

Yet another round of updates.... I wanna get this thing onto page three so it doesn't load so slowly. But oh well--I certainly can't resist photos.

Build update!
Took this bird on a 4,000ft of climbing, 26 mile jaunt in the hills above Cupertino, CA last weekend and it performed flawlessly. Though I think I may flip the stem again for the neg 5 degree rise. The Luv Handles are fantastic bars.

PICS!

Definitely!
Aside from how great they feel, your set, with that raw ti finish, look sweet with your frame/badge- comes together nicely.

Danke! They sort of pick up the purply metallic of the Mavic sunsets too.

T'is steel though---raw + clearcoat. The finish on the ti bars is a lot more uniform, w/o the iridescence.
