most impressive build. most impressive.

however i feel that maybe some of us have just a little to much spare time on our hands. praise the sweet lord baby Jesus that the free world has allowed the opportunity to take on projects such as this.

Wow, nice. That’s a very, very rare early one, still featuring the massive oversized front derailleur tube from the Carbon Cross prototypes, but with the triangulation of the final Inverse4 frame. As big of a hassle as that bb/fd was to sort out, you got the stiffest bb possible, & shouldn’t have to worry about breakage. Thx for sharing.
