Very nice build. Something very, 'right' about it, looks great.

How do you find it to ride? Any thoughts on the alloy forks? I have the carbon versions which I really like, but I did wonder how the alloy ones would be.

I have had both, and the alloy version is much stiffer, so much that I only use it on road on my commuter.

Thanks for comments.

Rides nice - light, quick and smooth. The Alu forks are good too.

Few more photos...

Very nice indeed. It's got a lovely modern/agressively race orientated look/stance to the build, I particularly like the new(er) Ritchey components used.

I'd agree, nice choice of parts. Good overall weight as well.
