    Excellent work, even brought it in nice and close to the HT (unlike most five-panel fixie fuccpersons).

    Whatever you choose, skip this Sunlite POS

    Canti-post tabs were alloy, and failure was quite rapid. tbh the rack itself was flimsy too.
    Wald basket is the most popular move for undrilled forks unless you're going full Cetma messlife

    Great project, it's like a Pompino v4 with better tyre clearance. Looking forward to the paint job!

    In this case the frame and seatpost are factory Colnago, and they don't make a stem to match. 'Frozen Red' would be next to impossible to duplicate. Rider went with Deda Alanera cockpit for the smoothness. Wheels are comically stupid, as most Corimas are. I'd never build a bike like this, but glad that folks do.

    Tyres actually not very yellow IRL. I see this bike regularly, it's utterly wild and def the epitome of HHSRB.

    Before I saw it, I never realised that FMB now make clinchers.

    Barely, I've just been riding the shit out of it! Glad you like it.
    Rain, shine, sleet, snow, this thing gets me almost everywhere. The simplicity of maintaining this bike is not lost on me, it's very easy to look after. Stays remarkably clean.

    In terms of new stuff, it's had a few goodies added in the last couple of years;

    Fizik Argo Tempo 'Les Classiques' saddle

    Shimano PD-M540 in Bronze

    GravelKing SK in Green

    A few GSC Voile straps

    Hubs relaced to destickered Open Pro CDs

    Crashed once or twice so the rack's a bit wonky

    Finally settled on swept bars with a great bell location

    The frame won't take stickers but the parts will
