More Info:
Got tired of the red/white/black nu-metal paint. The dudes at YNOT (ynotcycle.com) / Gallant (gallantbicycles.com) in Toronto hooked it up with the paint job. Couldn't be happier with how it came out. Last photo is how it looked when it arrived at my door. 15lbs 11oz with clips, Ellipse and Alpina.

This is pure sex. The colour and the Teschner fork, oh my days!

Personally, I would remove the stickers from the Ellipses. But that's a matter of preference, I guess.

Thanks, bought them from a guy in Toronto. Apparently they're not soeasy to come by outside of Europe. Glad I was able to scoop them up

i think most people dig the 90´s cdale frame because of the look and not for the perfomance. im liking ur build very much, but i would prefer a straight fork.

Agreed, I think something like an Alpina fork would look nice but I really do like this fork and wanted a track frame with a bit less aggressive geometry (at least less aggressive than my GT) for longer rides. Maybe some day for fun if I happen upon a fork for cheap
