Weird, velobuildmall.com wasn't around when I ordered, but I did hear about it at the time. I ordered from velobuild.com.

Dude, solid build! I love those bars. I am about to "pull the trigger" on one of these myself. May I ask how does it climb? Any flex at all? And do you think you can run 28c on it? I saw all the old forum posts but I am happy to see they changed it to accommodate 25c easily. I just live in the NW so it rains a lot and there are some gravel roads so I feel better with 28c. Again, looks great!

Hey! Rides well, could be more stiff (not as stiff as say my Cinelli) But I've raced on it and it feels fine. I currently have 25c GP4000II's on it (which measure around 27c). I haven't tried 28's but there's a bit of room to work with. Depends on the rim as well.

How do you like the finish? If you did it again would you go with the gloss or stick with the matte?

Love the finish, definitely would get matte over glossy but that's just me.

Cool! I'm looking to get that finish too.
How do the 25c tires fit, any clearance problem?

Colourphiliac says:

I was worried about that myself but I have plenty of room for 25c tires. I can only say that about my frameset in particular though. I remember seeing on the forums that there were issues with my frameset's fork but it seems that they fixed it.
