Great photos, they really show off the coloured highlights that you don't quite see as much on the outdoor photos, the mix between green, blue and red. Quite 'arty' really.

Kickass photos!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

It's been a while since my last post - some issues to be sorted out with the seatmast cap and an overseas trip meant that I haven't been able to ride or to post pics. But it's all sorted out now! The ride is very smooth as the small steel tubes and lower pressures in the tubulars soaking up the bumps in the road. Frame is still stiff enough for my feeble wattage though :wink:

Most of the ideas on the bike have worked well, e.g., water bottle placement, handlebars, but of course things could be improved with a tweak here and there.... slightly tighter clearances on the top tube aero water bottle with the stem, shifters not as easily reachable as I thought... but these are minor issues given how well everything has come together. It's really Rob's ability to take ideas over email and make them into a well-functioning reality! Thanks again Rob!! He is really one of the most innovative bike builders out there at the moment judging from some of the other designs posted on the forum!!
