I've had a blast building up my own "Ultimate Frankenbikes"*, on existing frames, (one in the works for the Quarantine Challenge) To be involved with the frame design, and for it to be executed by Strawberry, I'm sure made it way more exciting and satisfying. Cool project.

* May need a different term to describe it... No offense is meant - in any way whatsoever.

WOW new pics!!! rear wishbone, I love it.

No worries, I get it and you're right, it's definitely an anomaly and is outclassed from the jump on this but it was the standard for a long time despite how pedestrian and substandard it truly was.

I'll get to work on the 2 bolt Campy.

PS, full disclosure, Andy didn't build this, Dave Levy at TiCycles did after Andy bowed out.

See the addendum at the top.
