    Pretty Smooth!

    Not as detailed as a Vanilla, but pretty darn nice! I didn't know that Tom Teesedale built Sofa Kings(?) Or, did he just do "this" one? At any rate, I'll hafta keep ol Tom in mind if he's up to doing more of this type of work. He is "local" to my area, and I'd hafta consider him for a future custom build. Very nice!

    he didn't build many of the SK's. Most were alum, some ti. Litespeed made most of the Ti ones, i beleive.

    not as detailed as a vanilla? really? i probably agree, but don't think you can tell it from that photo.

    That bike is hot - and in my size, but light years beyond my budget.

    Am I wrong but is that an awfully high price for a used bike on Ebay?

    The thing that amazes me is the lug work. I have not seen many lugs that would allow for such a sloping toptube (though Kirk P. just came out with some called the Slant 6 Lugs that allow for 6deg of TT slope)...I bet there was some SERIOUS lug manipulation going on with this thing!

    Hot bike

    While I REALLY like the frame there is just something weird about the complete bike. Something just doesn't work for me and it isn't the backwards rotors, although that's pretty funny.

    Maybe it's the DH block stem?
    Maybe it's the easton post that I loathe?
    Maybe it's the Taiwanese carbon clinchers?

    Not sure what it is but something just isn't adding up for me. I'm sure I'd be ready to jump out of my skin if the pictures contained nothing more than the frame and the frame alone.

    Lanpope is right about the lugs....that took some serious work.

    As for the vanilla question...you have to see Sacha's worl up close to appreciate it....in terms of modern, creative lugwork........there is unlikely an equal.
