    Nice bike, congrats. Interesting anti cable rub measure on the HT and the running of the rear disc cable through the TT and LHST. I’ve not seen either of those before. Did you consider running the front disc cable through the fork for a cleaner line?

    • James Huang

      The front brake hose routing is a stock setup on Enve’s earlier road disc fork (it’s now internal on the new version).

      As for the brazed-on paint guards on the head tube, I have seen them before, but they’re not commonly used.

    A bike with discs? Bugger that, shoes are expensive…

  • Samuel Lian

    One thing I’d like to know, cost

  • Roel

    Nice craftmanship but quick releases on a disc braked bike and post-mount disc calipers are outdated.

    • Maximus

      Harsh. Have problems doing our QRs up properly do we?

    • Yemble

      Period-correct though?

    Beautiful bike from a beautiful region, my congratulations! Also to some smart choices you made including opting for QRs. If someone intentionally chooses those over TA on a rigid bike I would like to see it as a statement that he knows how to properly install a wheel and operate a QR ;-))). But I would not use the QRs you have for disc brakes. Their clamping force is not that great. If you ever find the need for more clamping force I found the actual Campagnolo skewers to be the ones with the highest clamping force. At least for my weight and riding style they make a notable difference.

      What is this paranoia with qr and disc brakes? I’ve used disc brakes and QR, front and rear, on my MTB for 17 years and never had an issue with aligning the the rotor or having a wheel jettison under heavy braking. Flat mounts are an answer for posers who don’t use real sized rotors and are more concerned with looks rather than braking performance.

      • Il_falcone

        I share your opinion as long as we’re talking about rigid frames and forks. I just uttered that the flimsy QRs he uses on his bike are maybe less ideal for disc brakes.

  • badhombrebigdo

    Beautiful frame design… don’t like the color, at all, and hate disc brakes…

  • 2wheelsandme

    Nice tube choices…rustic with the file work,it’s real! I would have liked to see the BB detail.

  • Jim

    Just where is this bunch of bike riders with all this bling ?

  • Wily_Quixote

    Can we have a new rule for custom steel bikes?
    No stem or fork shalt have a diameter greater than the top tube.
    See it done right here on a stock bike-
