yeah, mine are dulled a little bit just from handling and there are scratches on the sides of the rim from tire levers, but they are rock solid and perform great. i definitely recommend them.

GREAT job! That is a beautiful bicycle.

Beautiful!

Very Beautiful Samson! In such a rare size too! All your time well spent! Very clean build..

when i was building it up i noticed that it has a reverse-sloped top tube. 110mm spacing, sloped crown, rare silver decals (compared to standard black or white); this frame is worth more than what i payed for it

yeah ive looked at your samson build as a point of inspiration on some accounts. its a nice build and i like that you kept it simple and minimal.

nice man. looking forward to

nice man. looking forward to seeing more

H son

Please reconsider a heavy deep dish wheel on a build that should finish classy.. Araya box clincher would suffice or at least some mavic open pro's....
