    Beautiful bike, very special and unique. I won't be the one to throw stones at you about the pedals, as I use Dura Ace and Ultegras as well on most of my bikes. Thanks for sharing your bike.

    Nice ride, but you're gonna cut the steerer, right? I have the same Selcof ti post and really like it.

    Very well done....It's nice to see a bike with a black saddle, black tires, and black bar tape..you don't see that much anymore....it's practical and looks very classy

    The white/black combination is perfect....

    Thanks all - yes the steerer will be cut down when i'm happy with the setup, i want it to be a touch more relaxed than my race bike so i am just experimenting with stem lengths and heights - as a wise man i know says - easier to cut down than cut back up again!!

    Dave - thanks for your comment, I was torn between white and black tape, but i thought white would be too much (especially with white bars). One of the things i love about this bike is that it DOESNT scream "look at me" except to those people who know what they are looking at!

    Gutted that the weather here has gone to torrential rain today!!

    Really lovely bike--I would appreciate more detailed pics of welds and such. Very understated and classy.

    Amazing bike, I love the paint job! Understated elegance for sure.

    Nice, like that paint job.

    I think you have it backwards. The Peg should be the race bike

    Nice at a distance, but the details up close are exceptional. Congrats.

    NIIICE! I hope you enjoy it. What fork is that? Is that a 27.2 diameter Selcof post you're using w/the shim? Do you know if Selcof offers a 29.4 diameter post, as I was under the impression they did? BTW, the Chorus11 looks great - I'm considering putting it on the Marcelo frameset I recently purchased from a friend.

    Hey there - the fork is the one dario specs - i believe it is a mizuno (i trust his judgement on that!) I just got it painted to match.

    Yeah thats a 27.2 - I hunted for ages for a 29.4 but couldnt find anything satisfactory - the thompson didnt seem quite right, so in the end i just picked up the selcof - didnt think to write and see if they did it in a 29.4!! It doesn't seem over-shimmed to me so i'm OK with it.

    And thanks for all the positive comments.
