Here is mine from when I was building it, it does have somewhat of an old skool geometry, If my cranks are parralel to the ground and I turn the bars, the front wheels hits my front foot, love it though

They are beautiful frames. I saw one in a shop many years ago and loved the engraved "lug" work. My only problem with the aesthetics is the mahoosively extended head tube. I like road bikes to be low at the front... my back doesn't unfortunately :wink:

Having looked at the Merlin site it seems the new Cielo only has carbon top and down tubes and a conventional headtube. They're available for a wallet searing £3499 with fork+headset.

Nicely made, but I don't like all the poncy engraving.
