    Very nice. I bet that thing weighs less than two Highline frames!

    Full Spec?

    Nice. Real race bike. Have you published the full spec?

    Stick with the 100mm fork. From the look of the photo, you're already in a pretty low body position up front, so you are not going to have a huge amount of "travel" left in your arms and torso up there. Therefore why not let the fork do a little more of the work?

    Me too - they are best observed from a distance! Like anything on www.light-bikes.com, a flyweight bike would be wall art for me.

    Finish

    Is that the standard silver powder coat?

    Looks very similar to the original flux clear anodised finish. I'm very tempted.....

    Good job!

    That's a sweet ride my good man. I should have mine up and running in the next 2 weeks. Should be super light as well.
