Can someone tell me what the genius of this bike is? To the untrained eye it just has vintage value. But what is it that gives you guys such great appreciation for this bike? This is truly an innocent and harmless question.

Does this beast have 3 seat collars? That's so cool!

It has 3; because the frame splits in two parts, the third collar is the memory for the seatpost to be kept in the same position after reassembly.

Thanks for your post!

Looks nice! Colour scheme is very special, but matches perfectly to the classic frame details.

Thanks Mate!
It was a very special project to me, since I did the design, thinking about my riding style and strenghts. By the time I got to chose the color scheme on the builder's shop, light wasn't great, and somehow I felt disappointed when I leave with my frame to the light out in the street. Months had passed, and I'm getting the taste of it, and specially since I haven't found anything like it!
