It's my 3rd Enigma (one was nicked but I got it back, the other broke) and it rides like a dream, even better than the others.
Since I took the (poor) photos I'm moved the saddle up quite a bit.
I should have asked for a longer head-tube I think.
I'm hoping to continue RRTY on it; next audax is the Newport 200 at the end of the month.
you spoke to soon

I bet you could ride up a cliff in the lowest ratio of that!
Sorry about the photo - gets a loading error of file too large if I put it the correct way up
Beautiful bike by the way
And the Finnish summerhouse I based the colour on. I was cycling past it one day and it just hit me - "that's the colour I want my frame to be".
Keep meaning to stop one day and knock on the door when I'm passing on that bike!
The riders view
Wow, why has it taken me nearly 18 months to see that stunning bike.
Nice! Mine actually now has H Plus handbuilts on it too, it's a perfect combination for UK roads. The Eurus were fine in Finland but the wider rims work better here.
