    Purposeful looking frameset, what is it?
    The photo makes it look like it's been in an accident.
    Spec list...?

    Nice. Bars look like they could do with tilting down a tad.

    oh nice build.

    Nice frame, I like everything apart from the stem and bars, should have gone with a black stem and either black or white tape, that camo stuff is 'orrible.... So long as you like it and it gets you out riding, that's the main thing.... Enjoy :)


    BTW, How come your running so many spacers under your stem?

    tape is tempary as i found it the shed,as for the spacers the frame is smaller than i was expecting so had to pack it out with extra spacers.
    bike has been built with a mix of new and used parts as most projects are lol
    but im happy with it for the money ive spent..

    Looks like a Phaeton 'T' frameset - if so, that explains the unusual front end, because it's a triathlon/TT specific frameset designed to take tri-bars, rather than conventional drops...

    Explains why the front end looked suspiciously low and the need for so many spacers

    correct.i have adjusted the bars and now have a comfortable ride even though it is TT specific.

    Did you purposefully want a road bike with TT geometry? Comfort is one thing, but handling may be an issue, depending on the type of riding you do...

    handling is good ive rode it twice on diffrent roads with know problems,i did buy it knowing it was TT specific as i fancied something different.it climbs reall well and is very quick,i dont race i may use it for sportives though..
