    Congratulations Mark, Very nice indeed ! Q for Zak, alloy bars & drilling holes?

    • Eat More Lard

      Drillium is back!

    • I know people that drill carbon bars… That’s a step too far IMO

      • Wily_Quixote

        Think that’s hardcore? I drill my tyres to save weight.

  • Russ

    Dream bike but what is the issue with the bar tape – about half down the drop bars (on both handles).

    • AMK3072

      Satellite shifters.

    • Hamish Moffatt

      sprint shifters perhaps?

      I think Russ is referring to the extra bulk? That is one way of wrapping without using separate underlay pieces. I actually don’t mind the extra bulk around the hood.

      • JJ

        I wouldnt have thought this is what he means.

    Mark has decided to chop off the protruding steerer tube in a later stage… I must have OCD to observe this kind of details.

    Custom frame done right, correct headtube height for the rider with slammed stem. Nicely done Mark.

    • The protruding thing is the Chris King topcap.. It’s slammed as all fook

      • VK

        Look closely at all the photos. You are not OCD and missed the point.

        • Ahh yeah I’m not seeing what your talking about..
          The stem curves away from the cap very quickly and the Ck cap is a bit chunky. So it looks like it’s not sitting flush from some angles but… It is other wise the headset would loose and I’d know about that..

          And yeah you have me confused with another builder because I do not have OCD ;)

        • Yeah not ocd dude… Wrong guy..

  • zinj

    Nice…how do you charge the battery?

    • Zak came up with an interesting work around, but he’s not sharing the details on that. What I can say is that he has since moved onto a whole new strategy that is more elegant:

      • zinj

        Very smart! Beat the big S to the punch!

  • Dude pedalling

    That’s cool

  • Citizen Five

    Beautiful setup. I went back to steel this year and love it.

  • Eric Hancock

    Very clean; nice work.

  • Hamish Moffatt

    The small round tubes look so much nicer than the modern carbon bikes with huge square tubes (downtube especially). And no manufacturer logos everywhere. Looks great.

  • Pete M

    Not sure if it is the done thing but can I ask what total cost for the custom build was?

  • H.E. Pennypacker

    One of my favorite all time bikes of the bunch–beautiful. Can’t go wrong with Praxis either. Best chain rings in the world.
