Ohhh boy, this was a fun one. This took way too long to build. It is super garish, I know, but it rides like a dream. I bought it from Poland for a song; I fell in love with the crimped tubing, internal routing, and Silva dropouts. I am learning to love the dimensional splatter paint.

Great bike!!
Ps, that crimped tubing is called "gilco tubing" mostly famous to be used by the Colnago frames.

Thanks! I am aware of Gilco tubing, but this is not the same as the Gilco tubing used on Colnagos, this one has five crimps instead of four. Eddy Martens, who built the frame, made a special hydraulic crimping machine to achieve this profile.
