    I don't think they come painted and it would be a sin to do so. they look perfect as is.

    Nice looking frame Walt. I won a Jabber on one of the night rides a few years back and Tom helped me get the right size frame. Very cool guy. I'm thinking seriously about building up a Fisticuff when available.

    Looks good Walt. I talked to Tom at Swiss the other night. He was picking up the Optimus they had in stock. He had sold a few over the weekend and they were short on stock. I really like the lines on those frames.

    Congrats on the new ride.

    That said, I found the trick to the slipping Niner EBB: Carbo Grip and proper torque (16nm). I've had zero issue with slippage since then. That said, I will likely use that as an excuse when looking to upgrade my bike too .

    Well, I know somebody with a Vassago, and he had issues with the rear wheel slipping. I'm not sure if he finally addressed it.

    Ray, it's already got the seatpost clamp and headset in, but spec on the frame, including the dropout hardware, is 3.9 lbs.
