    That's a BAD - Big Ass Disc. Unusual choice: Disc in the back and V-brakes on the fork. Can you elaborate on your design choice?

    Especially interested given the choice of carbon hoops. I assume the answer is "yes!", but is the pre-preg at Enve good enough now to handle 300# or more of rider AND the weight of the bike on a rim brake?

    (Asks a Enve customer who just got his older heat-delaminated tubular wheels replaced under Enve warranty)

    The folks at ENVE claim that it is. We had to get these rims special order.

    It keeps the lawyer tabs acting as they should. The wheel can't be released if only the skewer is open, same function as a regular skewer + tabs. It just speed up the unwinding of the nut and act as a sort of memory nut positionning tool which is imho safer/more dumbass proof than a regular skewer.

    Sorry to hijack this thread.

    The Spectrum made it safely to Provence and is unpacked... quite impressive frame. Paint quality seems second to none and I am sort of stunned by these welds. Oh, and it weights 1235g approx (some slight estimation is involved as the headset, BB cups, cables stops etc are installed already) which or a frame my size is quite satisfying. These double butted tubes are probably not super thick!

    Did you need to ask about whether it will be Campy or not? This is Lionel we are dealing with after all.

    Just want to reiterate; Our welding is done by Seven Cycles. I just don't have the skills nor the time to learn them (not that I could at my age) at this point since Seven is just so good at this stuff. But I'll take credit for the design and paint work.

    And to give you a couple of numbers, the tubing in that frame ranges in gauge from 0.81 down to 0.56 depending on which tubes and how I had the butting done (excluding the head tube of course). The down tube is the most "radical" at 44.5mm diameter and gauges of 0.66 / 0.56. Can you tell I love this stuff?

    Yup. We've been using 1.0" chainstays on most of our frames for about ten years now. They aren't appropriate for everyone, but for this one, they are.

    As long as I have Lionel's permission, I'd be happy to upload his full AutoCAD drawing. His call of course. In lieu of that, I could upload just the part of the drawing showing the specs. and dimensions of the top tube.

    Thanks for the clarification TK- please allow me to correct my statement :

    Stunning- impeccable design and paint work by TK with welding perfection by Seven !
    Congrats- look forward to seeing it built!

    Didn't want to assume as I have seen an increase of Campy jedi's who have gone astray to the "S" side ;)
