Feels nice to get back on the bike - doesn't it?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Feels good to go naked every once and a while, eh? Just sayin'.

Thanks guy's! By the way,the chainring works fine :)
I just tuned it a bit, softened the lines as they looked a bit to hard to fit on my bike. shaved 3g as well :)

The bike is still looking great. I must confess that I'm a bit curious about that drop of your's. I'm might need to head your way just to check out what the bike looks like with the rider on it. :-)

I'm curious about that drop too, but I've never been very flexible :D

Drop looks great to me. I wish I could get my front end that low.

thanks gys :D
i like the drop, actually the front is ca 2-3mm to high right now as the front tire is an veloflex record wich builds a bit bigger as the veloflex servizio corse at the back.
thought to try the record as it should weigh around 35g less then the other one but ´this one came in with more then 20g to much and the back tire came with 7g less :roll:
next time it will be just the servizio corse on both wheels.

here is the partlist...

haven't done that much to the bike as i use my freetime for other stuff right now.

but in december i made an "isp". will say i build the seatpost-combination together with the frame. now the frame-seatpost-saddel is one part.

in the end it is exactly the same weight like before with the clamp
but now i can change so that the brakewire goes completly inside the frame and will come out between the seatstays.
then, with an homebuild carbonbrake i'm thinking about, i can skip the wirehousing at this point. that and an shorter wire will save around 10g plus the special brake wich i count 45g for and would save around 30g.

Wow. That just looks so clean!! I love it!

Also, I am shocked that it isn't covered in snow over there in Sweden. That's a recent photo?
