    Cielo SS 💦

    Haven't posted in quite a long time!

    Finally got around (time/finances) to building up my dream SS-

    Much Love out to my friends at Chris King!

    Primarily due to time and the ability to zoom in on pictures, Iím not going to type out the entire build spec- but, happy to answer any questions 

    Enjoy!

    How tall are you and what size frame?

    Not critical but curious, bike's lovely but the amount of seatpost showing has me wondering about dimensions and preferred reach.

    It's an XL

    I am 6'5" w/a 36" inseam/86cm. saddle height (center BB-Rails)
    410mm. seatpost

    90mm. 0dg. +/- Stem

    Feels great for this bikes intended purpose, which is leisure SS fun!

    Best,

    Justin

    Nice!

    Here is my Large with Mary Bars, ENVE fork & setback post, XX1 cranks. I'm just shy of 6'1" and the frame size is spot on.

    It runs most often on a King SS rear hub with cushy 29+ front tire. Also put my Berd PolyLight spoke'd wheel set (DT 240s hubs) on every once in a while too.

    Really like the feel of this frame and the Paragon rockers. Only thing that would make it even better would be slightly wider chain stays. Clearance is a bit tight with a 2.35" tire (on a Stan's Flow rim). The other (Nextie 30mm offset) rear wheel has a 2.25" tire mounted on it.

    Awesome ride! The Pauls and White Industries bits seal the deal. So sweet. Congrats.

    Yeah- had to complete the whole "boutique" build thing!

    Truthfully, while absolutely gorgeous- those Paul Klampers are not nearly as strong as my Saint's or Hope E4's though.. But, I couldn't have done this any other way!

    Thanks Mucho!
