Nice! You need a Speedo to race that bike. Ideally, in neon.

Please, please tell me that you are going to get the seat/post combo from Jure and I think you should find a cool carbon stem that works and get a bar/stem combo as well. That would be so sick. Did you cut off some of the bars at the end and if so how much. I do not like how long mine are. Would love to see some addtional pictures.

I am contemplating both things. I cut about 2cm off my Vuka Sprints if I remember correctly. They were definitely too long. I need to but my S-Works AeroFlys down on my Allez too. I've been slacking on that, but since it's the beater I mainly just beat on it, instead of work on it.

Bought my first road bike today. About to go for a 25 miler on it. Super amped to get more into cycling.

I have a rear 404 but it's being shipped to Zipp to make the hub 11 speed compatible.

Thanks. I built up a Surly Pacer for my Dad for his 65th birthday earlier this year (his first new bike ever, he has been riding my hand me downs since he started riding 25 years ago) and that got me looking. I looked at lots of options I was looking for:
1. Steel
2. clearance up to 33mm tires to allow cross tires or Jack Brown tires 3. geometry that fit me

The Surly is nice, but I really like the flexibility that the BMC offers for tires. The Surly can just squeeze a 33mm tire the BMC handles it with plenty of clearance. If the Surly geometry and tire clearance works it is a good option.

Kona makes a complete bike with the Honky Tonk that offers similar tire clearance, but I've always preferred to buy frame sets and build bikes up how I like and the 9 speed and tighter frame clearance on the Honky Tonk were a deal breakers.

All City Cycles has some nice options. The Mr. Pink is similar but I wanted an English BB and the BB30 bottom bracket on the Mr. Pink was not ideal.

That led me to the Hampsten Strada Bianca (which also has similar clearance as the BMC) but couldn't justify the $2k premium over the BMC.

In the end the BMC was the only frame, short of custom, that fit my needs. The price was right and I snagged the last 56cm light blue frame Mike had.

Suffer Well.

nice!! i love the homemade tulas

to get more modern geometry you could turn this seat post 180deg - or switch for a profile ffwd post - to move the seat forward about 5cm, and this allows you to get a flatter stem (adjustable is best since you will keep getting lower). I did this on a 62cm 650c cannondale and it was an amazing difference - comfort and speed

It seems as if a new color was invented when they painted that bike

thanks for posting a Fuji

I'm not so well-versed in saddle types, what've you got going on there? did hotman637 photobomb that saddle before you snapped the picture?

Exceptionally well thought out build. Did you have to source those really long drop Tektro dual pivot brakes, and if so, what are they like?

Get the most aero and light bike you can get. With the aero advantage you can be saving minutes and with the weight advantage you can be saving seconds. In a race against the clock both matter.

Oddly enough the color had to grow on me but now I really like it. The saddle is a Dash Tri.7, I can't say enough good things about the saddle and my interactions with Weston over at Dash.

Thanks.

These are the standard reach (47-57mm) model R359 brakes and like most of the Tektro brakes, the pads suck. So I replaced them with Kool Stop Salmon after the first ride and they work much better. They are not Dura Ace power, as there is some noticeable flex, but very good.

These brakes open up a bit wider than the Shimano standard reach option which is why I selected them. That additional opening width allows me to use 33mm tires (Jack Brown or 'cross tires) and still retain the ability to remove the wheels without deflating the tires.

Suffer Well.

Thanks jmh, really interesting. Enjoy the bike! I'll also be posting a steel build on here soon, an Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra in Columbus SLX that has some very interesting provenance.

Bamboo? That is a thing of beauty!
We have a guy who makes bamboo bikes in Vancouver [Grass Frames], they claim the strength to weight ratio is similar to Carbon and much tougher.

That's a sick bike. Also, I am from Vancouver originally, so it is cool to hear that interesting/different bikes being made in my hometown. Next time I am home I will have to go checkout them out!
