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

Wow, that' a stunning color combo, I like it a lot.

In today's world it's pretty brave to order parts without knowing the frame, as you never know what's going to fit, but if you are thinking custom, that's less of a problem.

Great start. Agree about Firefly possibly being able to do some color magic to pull the purple and green into the frame.
Nice project.

Definitely! Hoping to not come across too many barriers -- I have tried to account for certain discrepancies by getting 2 headset options (see below). I have noticed that headtube size is wavering within and across companies that use Ti as a building material -- Other potential issue may be the seatpost diameter.


Thanks for all of the great ideas/comments:

Please find more photos of Chris King Purple parts as they come in.... Very rich hue; is quite nice!

Hubs are 28 H (only option) -- Looking for rim ideas :D
