Re:

The seatpost on the proto was custom made for that bike.

The build was standard M730 XT with Bullseye hubs and cranks, Fisher headset, custom FTW stem, and blue Taperlite. Some Other small details but nothing earth shattering.

Thanks Martin. You say "Fisher headset" but wasn't it made by Chris King, in the Fisher Evolution size? I have an identical one, silver, no logo.
Seat post: I think I read that on your blog before, thanks for the reminder.
I thought it was Campy though, so, again, thanks for clarification. I'm keen to get my Evo (or should I say Devo?) build done soon.
The FTW aluminum stem is out of my reach though. Even if I wanted Frank to make one I don't know if I want to wait that long. Do you know if a standard quill adapter was used? Or did the fork have an extended steerer?

EDIT: just found this very photo of the proto, in MBA May 89, which looks to have an XT seatpost, so the seatpost was changed presumably for weight savings? Still, it's a great looking bike. I presume those wheels are the superlight ticket items!
