Fantastic bike, congratulations.

What is your opinion about the first wheels (ztr355 + extralite hubs)? Can You ride them hard without problems?

Thanks too :)

I'm not really well enough to ride, let alone ride hard :( as they are a lightweight 28H wheelset they are probably best suited to XC riding; I'm sure they'll be fine for that ;)

Nice colour combination!
The only thing i don't like is the rise handlebar, I'm more of a flat bar guy.
Cheers

Martin, you build a nice bike, my man 8)

I have a set of brick color Oury grips, that would go great with those awesome Ritchey tires...only issue would be the brown saddle. Hmmm...

Having the pleasure of caressing this frame for a couple weeks, it is truly a thing of beauty...Woohoo Moots!

Looking forward to seeing that other frame to which all the light chichi parts have migrated :twisted:
