VERY nice indeed - I had a very similar/maybe identically framed rigid (Pace carbons) and it rode as well as it looked!

At least 23.5 times better with the gears. It looks a really nice frame.

Have you re-weighed it? Intrigued to see the difference.

Nice!
Makes me want to strip the paint off of mine!
Don't suppose you've got any close ups of the decals have you? :)

Just lucky with the ratio at 36:18. When I swapped the rear to a 16t I had to use a tensioner.

Yeah, I'd be interested too - but I need to get a new battery for my fishing scales first.... :roll:
