Thanks Pyro
Well the Corvid is ace, too. But the silent and raw look of the Vpace without TT to ST brace somehow catches my eyes more

Nice build Jesse.

I'm not usually super-keen on stealthy bikes but this is the nuts.

More 'ghost' than stealth and absolutely crushes it. The shot setup just enhances it.

I can see this being re-posted extensively through the year/end of year HTOTY reviewing.

Thanks everyone, appreciate the feedback from this crowd. It's pretty fancy, although I'd love it if I had had it all new like back when I built my rootdown - but that is a top-tier-first-world-problem. I'm a bit pissed at the LBS for ignoring my note about cutting the steertube as I have no time for that now and there's a few little things here & there that irk me, but overall I love the vibe of the build. Putting bikes together is an art (and fuggin pricy at times) and what I realize is that once I've finished a project I can't really look at it objectively anymore haha. Can't wait to ride it, though. It's 2lbs lighter than my steel bike and from what I hear feels wicked-er than the steel. It's not all classic ti grey, but regardless, I'm stoked I never have to worry about rust on this thing as it'll be riding year round.

Bikes!!
