    Yep, needs some black wheels. Vision Metrons would look good on it. Stunning frame though.

    Lovely, but lose the wheels for plain black deep rims - the current ones detract from the lovely frame.

  • That looks epic with those wheels. Definite improvement in my opinion 8)

    Looks epic with those wheels. However....... Look at the OCD sticky post and post it again following the rules so we can drool over it.

    One of the nicest bikes I have seen on here so some good pics would really do it justice.

    Crikey, the hoods look higher than the saddle.

    New wheels look well! Reckon I will de-sticker the Fulcrum Quattros on mine as a short term measure until such time as a new wheel set is able to be sneaked in. That colour scheme is class btw

    New deep 60mm deep Wheels make the bike look so much better don't you think?

    Nice, although a level saddle would make it better.

  • Love the bike! Just got a white version of the frame, was hoping to run Schwalbe 30c Tubular on them, what size tyres were yours?

    Thanks

    Gorgeous - lovely. Best one I've seen.

    Now cut that junk off the steerer - you don't need it.

    Any chance of slammin' it? It at the minimum, cut that junk off.

    A lot of forks require a couple of mm sticking up past the stem, so often need at least a five mm spacer.
  • Negatron - just a couple of mm gap either above or below the stem to allow pre-load to be set, so cut steerer 2mm below the top of the stem but above top clamp bolt and get rid of spacer above stem.

    Positron - It depends upon the specification of the fork and the bung.
