    Did he say "a bit insane?" Ha, ha, ha, he, he, he...

    Have fun, Lionel!

    Being without a non-stainless tig bike is definitely the most insane thing here ;-)

    I believe Paul posted my frame to FB today. The tapered head tube in steel is the likely tip off.

    I was expecting a check in before he started building, but then again I trust him to deliver a great bike without my input, other than my measurements and our chat when I visited over the winter.

    Hey did you pick this thing up yet? We're all waiting on a ride report to kick our weekends off right.

    This thing is in my US house along with the beautiful SR RS group. I picked it up Wed in Santa Cruz and will bring it back to France with me Wed next week. It looks very good and is very light. Whether I will like it or not remains to be seen once it's built up and ridden ;-) If I can't "handle it" I will be sure to list it here ;-) I have decided to only keep bikes I love.

    lionel's bikes bore me. i want to know more about this man with a california house, a french alps house, and a family in a house somewhere in france. also, a job in electronics that requires him to jet set across the multiple time zones at least once a month, yet a massive aversion to electronic shifting and ride photos? who are you mystery man?

    i've actually met this mystery man and he's quite a fine individual. he has many leather bond books i've heard.

    This thread is making me want a rock lobster, something like the tube set in lionel's bike but in cross format with discs, it could even be the same color and about the same size.

    Paul would not build a cross bike with that tubeset. It's a "road only" tubeset. I hope to finally be able to break a frame.

    Do you mean break this frame Lionel? I can't see it somehow and I foresee you loving this bad boy, moving it back to France and selling everything else. Another cracking bike.

    Yeah, I never broke a frame. The walls are very thin on this frame. Deda specs it as road only and Paul told me he would not build a cross bike with that tubeset. Can't wait to ride it and see if I like it.
