Took this out for it's first ride yesterday:

I put it together pretty quickly with a mix of Athena and Chorus with Mavic 501/Rigida wheels I'd picked up recently with building a bike for a friend in mind. When I saw a 243 frame my size going plan B went quickly into effect and I put what I'd collected together for myself :)


It rides fantastically from the get go, stiff responsive and corners on rails.

Yeah I saw yours when I was researching the 233, 243, 253 line and it pretty much made me want one :) Still waiting to see pics of your final build :wink:

The red is far more red in real life than in my photos (more like in yours) - the metalic affect in the paint can make it a little pink sometimes. I should really take some better photos some time.
