So I scored this ridiculous frame-set after Crankstar up here in Brisbane shutdown. After a short time on the market I decided to flip my existing roadie (to user Wookie which I’m really bloody happy about) to fund an electronic group as this frame is electronic specific. I kept my cockpit and wheel-set swapped in a Campy free hub then enlisted Scottridesabike (the mad dog) to build it up for me.
So F’ing stoked on it I can’t even explain. Little shake down river loop yesterday, got the fit dialled, Mt Cootha plus a bunch of hills today and it’s killer. Had to swap out the 25c Graphine’s for 23’s as they had about 1mm clearance all round in the seat stay and hard descending had them rubbing.
Couple of lounge room phone shots for now but the Photography Guys/Gals at work owe me so I’m gonna get some sweet freebie studio shots
