    Never did understand why pics have to be taken from the drive side?

    This ^ is spot on. Gorgeous bike, I wouldn't change a thing.
    would change the Enve BONE stem for a more elegant/ slimer one ... that thing looks too bulky on a 1 1/8 HT

    I don't think one is allowed to comment on stems (although you have done so in a fine manner before;)

    To be honest - a painted stem would look awesome. So would a ti stem and ti post. I like stems to either match the post or painted to match the frame. Mine is currently neither.
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    Those tires are like Ball Park Franks—they plump when you cook 'em. Looks awesome, Tim!

    This thing is so Baller. I am surprised that there is no front bag rack (rando style) given that this was labeled as Jan Heine's bike. Maybe that comes later? Anyway, monstrous in all the best ways!

    First ride today as promised--34 miles. Only about 2 miles of gravel but oh man is it ever rock steady and fast. I'll remove the Garmin the next time I take pics, and maybe put it in the big ring.

    Picture etiquette be damned, we like it verite! Awesome bike, the fat tires and the rest of the package are (sorry to repeat myself) totally baller.

    That other bike is just wilting in the presence of Greatness.
    This bike is pretty much perfect from where I'm sitting. Cheers!!

    Running for a departure for Italy right now (the Giro, baby!), so all I've got is 57.1 TT, saddle ht. = 77 cm. Approx. 6 cm drop. All titanium--don't really know the tubing sizes. 44 mm HT, though. Parlee fork for disc brakes. Rides like a dream. Enve wheels, Compass Barlow Pass 38 mm tires. Fizik saddle, seat post, bars and stem. HTH, Tim

    Such a great build, thanks for sharing more detail.

    do the rear lugs have fender mounts?
