    When dual-pivots became a thing, I was so keen to get one on the front. Was a right pauper at the time, so had to wait until I could scrounge one from the random parts bin at my LBS...

    First emergency stop, I went straight over the bars, and was totally stoked about it. Next emergency stop saw my back wheel in the air for a few metres as I balanced the bike around the head tube. Fuck yeah, finally enough front brake.

    Never thought I needed more rear brake once my kit exceeded like RX100 (Tiagra-ish) spec; was puzzled why I was the only one I knew of with DP/SP until Campy finally agreed with me and made it an option. Especially since too much brake hurts modulation...

    A nice fastback seat cluster like on that powder blue thing would look sleeker with a single-pivot, for sure. And if monostay, it should be regarded as compulsory.

    Hah, very hip. Purple ano redux somehow puts me in mind of mullets and moustaches coming back, while the steampunk finish on the frame would hugely appeal to a whole other moustache crowd.

    That's rather swish. Shame it lacks a single-pivot rear brake

    Sick AF.

    The Meilensteins remind me of Rev-Xes - the same method of spoke tensioning, and they're both mad-looking $$ wheelsets which, although technically inferior to more ordinary stuff, doesn't stop me wanting a pair.

    That Time just looks fucken bananas rocking them. Not sure what's up with that yellow sticker standing out like dog's balls, tho

    Those nipple drivers look pretty shmick.

    ... BTW, US$600 for a dishing gauge. That must've inspired at least a few blokes to make their own for $20.
