The whole bike

I just finished my latest "just over 14 pound" urban flat bar road bike project to help keep in shape. The Titanium and carbon fiber parts make this a dream to ride, the best riding road bike I've ever been on. The CHUNKY ESI Grips work fantastic to help take out what little road buzz gets up to the ENVE riser bar. this is the second flat bar road bike that I've built custom from a frame up. The all new Ultegra 2X10 stuff works flawlessly with the new SL-R770 10 Speed Rapid Fire flat bar shifters and flat bar brake levers.

*** UPDATE - I'll take some new photos of it with the new MAVIC Ksyrium SR rims on it and my other bikes ASAP!

One fast machine

ATB I love this bike.It reminds me of the Kona Super Dew that was out a few years back but much nicer.Man I wish I could have gotten one of those.




probably the fastest/lightest flat bar i have ever seen

I wasn't trying to build the lightest bike?

but the titanium and carbon fiber parts really make it a joy to ride. I road it another 31 miles today and I can't get enough of it.
