Wow! I like it, love the stealthy component spec. I wonder how it would look with skinwall tyres though, just to break it up a little?

Great job so far.

Team Master/Control would be a good way to go. I like the LX build, under-rated groupset that one.

Marvellous bike, Bart! To be honest: Though just build up with LX it's my favourite of your stumpis. And please just try black/skinwall-ground controls or similar tires :wink:

Finished the bike for the retro-ride this sunday. Put a suspension fork on it for the ride, but kept the red/black theme!
