That is beautiful.
Apart from the white contact points, the difference between the head tube and the fork crown, and not having the calipers that match the group set I even love the build.

Does anyone know what those forks are?

It is a BONTRAGER XXX for TREK carbon, tapered tube fork stripped naked and then clear coated. I was thinking of replacing the brakes but I think they look cool already. It will not make any difference anyway if I switch to the 11 speed brakes. I'd love to get the skeletons though but again, it will just be the same. It will stop the bike either way.=)

Aaah, didn't realise you were the seller!
It's rare that I love other people's builds - hence the ultra nit-picking. I'd say you've got it as close to perfect as it's ever going to get. I really like what you have done with the forks.

What are those wheels? There's no way I'd sell the frame.

Thanks. I would really like to keep it but I need a little smaller frame. Which I already have. It's a size 55 2002 KLEIN Gerolsteimer frame with the bubble paint. It's a team frame and still hase the jockey's name on it. I'll be using that same fork on it. I'd really like the matching colored fork but it's all good. I like the carbon look better. The wheels are CANE CREEK VOLOS.
Here is the frame.Image

You lost my interest at "International bidders ... you have to leave a feed back as soon as you send the payment" ... I was pretty keen but positive feedback before the thing has arrived is a bit much to ask, especially if it never arrives!

Good luck with the sale though.

I never had any issues with international shipping. And having a good feed back score, I think I want to keep it that way. And the feedback part on my ad, I just forgot to remove that part. Sorry.
