Bought the frame and fork direct from Wabi Cycles and hand picked everything else. I really love this bike. Relaxed road geometry with classic lugs is exactly what I was looking for. Had the wheels hand built by Universal Cycles. They build great wheels for a really good price. I plan to switch to the new 2011 XTR pedals (now that they have a small platform) when they become available. Might also replace the Brooks cork bar plugs with red Soma plugs. I built this bike to ride for a very long time and hope to pass it on to my 3 year old son when it fits him. It is drilled for a rear brake so I can always switch to freewheel if my knees start creaking to much.

change the bars or level

change the bars or level them out and drop the stem down a little and then you will have a SWEEEET bike

Nice bike!

I am sort of in denial right now...you have almost the exact same bike set-up as I do! I currently have risers on my bike, but I am going to get the Soma urban pursuits as well...weird stuff. I don't have pictures at the moment, but I will upload updated pictures of my steed as soon as I am able. Also too...your name is Trevor?? So is mine...I am tripping out!

since your friends havent told you yet.

your handle bars look ridicules at that angle.

Re: since your friends havent told you yet.

Sweet, "ridiculous" is exactly the look I was going for.

Wow. Out of curiosity, how

Wow. Out of curiosity, how is the weight of the Reynolds 725? Your bike is giving me a bit of buyers remorse for my Bianchi Pista haha.

Re: Wow. Out of curiosity, how

Weight is pretty good. I weighed the frame and fork individually a few days. I know the uncut cro-moly fork weighed a whopping 2.2 lbs. And I think the frame came it at 4.6 lbs. The total weight of the bike is 19.7 lbs as seen in the pics. I weighed it out of curiosity only, not because I really care how heavy it is.
