That is a cool looking bike, however there can be no way that its stiff enough to ride on trails. It looks like the bike would flex more than stretch armstrong.

Aesthetically that is pretty damned perfect. Loving the half radial rear wheel as well.

Couple of questions for you:

Did you machine the Syncros clamp holes from round to square???

And are those Ringle "road" quick releases?

The quick-release hubs are original RINGLE.
The seat clamp also.
Only the clamping lever on the seat clamp is BICI.

The SYNCROS titanium with the customized clamping head is around 5 grams lighter than an original model... ;-)
