Finally managed to finish the Vitus. I love bonded frames and this has to be one of the finest looking ones in my view, the details in the carbon kevlar weave is lovely to look at and the lacquer is so well finished too.

Please. Don't close the jaws on your stand.

You really don't want to know how many Pinarello Prince frames I sent to the tip because a semi-pro team mechanic failed to understand that it's better to use an alloy seatpost to tighten the jaws onto instead.

+1 to that. I've always been wary of buying carbon frames which use a clamp-on front mech for similar reasons.

Thanks, yes I'm aware of the dangers and only rest it on the jaws for light work.
Looks like the project may be delayed anyway, blew the engine in my car...
