Aventon Mataro Low - Singapore

First time building a bike from the ground up. I've imported the parts from the US and UK through Amazon and Evan Cycles, respectively. Frame and wheelset bought locally. The experience and the wait for the parts were well worth it, except for the China 700c tires which were a b*tch to install. Thinking of sticking over black decals for a murdered out look. Thoughts?

Aventon Mataro Low - 52cm

Fork/Headset:
Nashbar Half Carbon Fork

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Sram S300/GXP

Pedals:
Shimano PD-M520

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
48/17

Handlebars/Stem:
FSA Omega Compact drops/Cinelli Pista 110mm stem

Saddle/Seatpost:
Charge Spoon | Cinelli Vai seatpost

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
88mm Carbon Wheels/Novatec track hub/Continental Gatorkskin 25c

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
88mm Carbon Wheels/Novatec track hub/Vittoria Randonneur 28c

Accessories:
- Fizik Microtex tape - Topeak bottle cage attached to Minoura seat mount - Knog Bliner front | Cateye rear light

are those the e-bay 88mm carbon wheels? if so how do you like them and how do they hold up in street use?

they are perfect for track bikes. Works almost like other big brand carbon wheels. For road bikes, not really due to their braking surface unable to sustain high temperatures in situations such as descents.

Nah. I've always though that Leader frames are overpriced. Aventon hits the sweet spot in quality to price ratio.

it's a fork not a frame. same price as the alloy/carbon from aventon but has a better track rake on it and the look in general is really clean. it's what I'm going to eventually get on my mataro

Ooops. Oh yeah, the fork. Yep, a nice bladed fork is what I'm looking for. The Nashbar carbon fork, although affordable and well-reviewed, does not really match the whole look.

I just saw this. Haha! I though it was only me. I've always hated how the fork looks even if my friends say otherwise.

Nice ride man, I like the Mataro frame. Very clean build. The SRAM S300 actually looks quite nice :)

Thanks Man. Yes, no regrets choosing the S300s over the Omnium. I'm thinking of replacing the Nasbar carbon fork though. Profile is too slim for my taste.
