Thanks Christian from Netherlands! This was quite some time back and I can't seem to find the email communication between myself and the velobuild sales rep. Prob you can show him/her my bike and they might have the details.

Thank you for information. I will buy: FSA

They have 2 different versions 15 mm or 8.7mm, i think this is topcap size.

Very nice bike, I am planning on doing somewhat similar with this frame. I really like the tires you have in one of the pictures. They have a yellowish stripe on the side. I've seen a purple tarmac set up with those tires and I am really curious which product this is, thanks in advance!

Very nice!

It is a size 49cm? (how tall are you?)
Saddleheight from center BB?

Nice paintscheme also! The black is unpainted glossy carbon and silver is glossy silver? Done by Velobuild?

khairi-omar says:

Thanks! Yup it is a 49!
saddle height is approx. 680mm

And yes, I provided velobuild with the paint scheme and selected the colors. Black is not raw but metallic black with some sparkles and silver. All done by velobuild.
