Massive fans of these frames, really want one, hoping I will one day.

Any plans set out or just picking up bits as and when?


They are a very nicely made and finished frame, dare i say nicer than the kili ti to look at. No exact plans as yet but maybe middleburn rs8, xt, dt swiss wheels and some nice white 120 forks..

I almost went for one of these myself, but you only turn 40 once so I went for a custom build instead Still using 853 and fillet brazed, so both bikes have a large hint of retro abut them

Looking forward to seeing this built up


Indeed you are only 40 once and I plan to milk it big time when the time arrives in 5 years :lol: I saw your thread and your plans sound ace, looking forward to seeing them come to fruition. 8)

Out of interest what is the weight of the pace?


Just weighed my large frame and it came in at 2240 grams minus the slideouts.

So not a lot in it then. :lol:

I think you could be right, splashbacks would look great, however, I heard a rumour they were shite :lol: Maybe I should reserve my judgement :wink:
