    Thanks! and No, I'm not located in the UK.

    This is over in Singapore.

    Anyway, I wouldn't call this a custom built bike since most of the parts were picked off the shelf from various different vendors from the likes of Wiggle, PBK, Slanecycles, CRC and so on...

    Its probably customized to the way I wanted but in no way built up to a degree where custom geometry and tubings were used. Hope that helps!

  • i think i might set this as my screen saver at work. The TIME logo running down the seatpost is just wow!

    @leej88, how did you learn to assemble bikes? Can I also ask, if you don't mind, how much roughly would everything cost if someone were to assemble such a bike?

    Why not google the parts yourself?

    Hi, what I did was I sent the parts in to a local bike shop that sold the ciamillo gravitas and had them fit on the brakes for me and as such, putting the bike together was considered as an extra service. Paid about $60 US for assembly. At least that way, they wouldn't be too unhappy at the fact that I bought nothing from them.

    Anyway, I paid quite an arm and a leg for the entire set up

    I already have this bike (ithe VIP version, nude carbon with white.. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) as my PC wallpaper and screen saver at work, and am figuring out how to get one. It will be Campag SR 11 speed and either Boras or Mavic Carbone Ultimate wheels... as soon as I can re-mortgage the house!!!

  • Hawt - no other word. I hope you race that bad boy, it deserves it.
  • how are the roads in singapore, and malaysia for that matter?
  • how are the roads in singapore, and malaysia for that matter?

    On average, roads in Singapore are pretty well paved with little or no potholes....at least at places I ride to.

    However, the drivers have an intolerable attitude towards us cyclists on the whole and there's been a fair share of accidents and road bullying with a percentage of them being taxi drivers.

    As for Malaysia, I'm really not quite sure since I've never ridden there before... But I've heard many riders talk about the rolling hills and extreme heat over there.

    There is a huge cycling fraternity here in Malaysia, for both off & on-road. And the roadies have successfully converted a few spots to cycling havens (Genting-Sempah, Bukit Jelutong, Putra-Jaya to name a few).

    You are right about the rolling hills & heat, but if you start off early enough, you should be home just before the intense mid-day heat takes over the cool morning air.

    The other road users here in Malaysia usually have a healthy respect for cyclist, especially if they see us with our proper gears, and sticking to the side of the road.

    There's even a very popular website called bicyclebuysell (BBS), which is free-to-use, where enthusiast new & old trade on their wares regularly. Quite an enjoyable hobby if you are frequently upgrading your ride as stuff gets snapped-up very quickly.
