This bike is beautiful, apart from the tires, which don't do the built justice.

Thanks! The bike looks even better in person.

And for the ride...I was finally able to get out and have a (semi) professional set of photos taken of just the bike and also of me riding down some techy singletrack basalt descents. The photographer seemed very happy at the time, then called me when he arrived home to let me know the images had been deleted by mistake..... So real pictures will have to wait just a bit longer. Super frustrating.

But at least not all is lost. The few trail miles I put on the bike were very enjoyable. The bike handles very nice and smooth and the brakes are totally dialed, easy 2 finger stopping. Geometry is dialed for sure.

Lastly, i'm keeping my eyes out for some period tires, until I find something appropriate the Porcs are staying.

I don't understand the hatred for these tires.

It's because they suck. Simple as that.
