    Thanks @Tijs!
    The wheels are going to be blacked out. Black decals in the making. The frame is maybe beeing repainted this winter, and then also the stem and maaaaybe the fork.

    ok. frame is done, bike built up.. so far, it rides well. more than stiff enough. descends on rails and is comfy on long rides. still needs some tiny tweaks on the geo and more testing. (The Weather in Norway is not great at the moment)!

    Saddle shaping done. 59grams on the scale. Untrimmed edges. Needs some reinforcements inside and seatpost moulded on to the saddle.

    Started the saddle moulding today. «Learning by doing». I made a plaster mould, copying a childrens saddle. I have absolutely no idea what’s the result is going to be like. Did the carbon lay-up this evening. Wet lay-up with a brush. No vacuum or fancy ovens. After it’s cured, the plan is to trim the edges, bonding on a old carbon seatpost and hive it a layer of clearcoat. Then a gentle padding on top. Or maybe dipers is enough padding?

    Following up with another prototype of a Titanium road disc. This belongs under the Stribe brand thats run together with @larsenroad. The frame is being welded and almost all of the parts are collected. The frame and fork will fit 32mm tires (depends on the rim width) and have rather fair geo. It will have flatmount disc brakes, 44mm headtube, straight seatstays and semi classic geo. Since thsi is the first prototype, the geo will most like be tuned for the next one. Cant wait tot test it-

    I will ride this prototype for training and club-races and since this is one of the last bikes i will spend money on in some years, the parts list looks something like this:

    Handlebar - Deda zero 100 shallow / Deda superleggero 42cm
    Stem- Kalloy Uno
    Seatpost - Deda Superleggero
    Saddle - Specialized Toupe Pro or Berk Lupina Padded
    Seatpost binder - Carbon TI
    Bottle cages - King cage Titanium
    Groupset - Etap Hydro
    Wheels - MCFK 55mm with 240 straightpull
    Crankset - Quarq Dzero carbon (or Rotor Power2max)
    Fork - Enve disc 2.0
    All bolts - titanium
    Headset - Cane creek slamset
    Tires - Schwalbe pro One 28mm / Compass Stampede Pass 32mm (Tires set up tubeless)

    Brand color scheme is still not set, nor the paint split. Still playing around with colors and putting togehter collages with bits and pieces in AI. More color options to come. The painting is done in Norway by myself and the fabrication of the prototype is done where the Hardtail prototype is done. (Waltly)

    The blue frame is not decided, still playing with colors.
