nice frame

i saw the same frame hanging up in my lbs (velocult) the other day

Killer frame. I ride a

Killer frame. I ride a Tiemeyer, and he still uses the same downtube, toptube and seatstays on his new frames.

I don't think that's the original fork. Not sure what would be a better substitution though.

pursuit bikes were never

pursuit bikes were never meant to have drops or i risers i guess also...

If you throw drops on that

If you throw drops on that thing, you're gonna have some serious back problems haha. I guess it depends on what drops but b123's would feel like shit.. I have b123's on my kilo and the drops can be uncomfortable after awhile, and the tops aren't super comfy either.

i always hated riding and feeling like im too upright (especially with risers) so this is actually more to my liking.
i personally havent encountered any uncomfortableness in any part
of my body with riding any of my bikes (except for several saddle choices) so i think i should be alright.

yeah, a saddle can really

yeah, a saddle can really wreck any ride. i've only ridden flites, and i think i may change some time.

i think id like this more if

i think id like this more if it had a straight blade carbon fork kinna like the one that was on your gtb

i dig this frame so much.
