That's freaking sexy. Full build list to share?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Yes indeed, very cool.... in an unusual cool kind of way. Completely different from the norm, which is always nice to see 8)

as close to everything is carbon fiber in my build, I take this as a classy compliment Fibre-Lyte !

That's how it was intended :wink:

Have you thought about some carbon cranks on there? The KCNC's are really nice, but THM Clavicula cranks would be extra special 8) (admittedly very pricey though :( )

If having as much cf as possible is a goal of yours there's a couple more pieces you could change, but it's a very cool bike as it is.

What do you use it for?

THM of course are state of the art... but considering the amount of little rocks my crank has to deal with, and the THM prices, i don't think I will go for a Clavicula.
once again, my bike rides twice a week on singletrack it's no show bike ;)

I didn't mean to imply that the bike doesn't get ridden, I was just curious what you use it for. I imagine it's a lot of fun in a lof of different terrains from the city to the forrest.

you are absolutely right, it much more about racing the bike than driving it... unless you lokk where you lay your tires, the bike kicks yuo out ;)
anymway, Update with a DT XMM110, my back hurted after some long distance runs..

I need a negative rize stem in order to get my position back to normal, i think of a 3T ARX Team.

what do you thing ?

well you are damm right, I think the same... I had to go for the DT to soften my long rides... and to be honest despite what I used to say when I rode with the trigon, I am faster with a fron suspension, even if the bike's heavier...

any clue on how lighten it now ??
