Amazingly sleek join between the headset and the fork - looks almost totally flush.
Nice bike, though I'm not too sure about that paint scheme. Are we going back to the late eighties?

Raxel: Can you investigate if forks are for sale separately?

In fact his frame is a limited one, and mass produced frames are painted in a single color.
I like the gradation color scheme myself as I'm a fan of klein bikes :]

jur: They sell the forks separately, but it is rather expensive at around $350.
But they are worth the money as they has carbon steerer and are very light (only 390g)

Nice weight - but the bloody pumpkin paintjob is not my cup of tea either.
(I prefer Raxel's shiny silver beauty...)

The combination of SRAM/Shimano/Campagnolo seems to violate certain laws of the universe too.

That looks like the frame I would buy if it was available here... no suspension bits. Obviously it doesn't fold, but that would suit me just fine - a really solid frame to sprint away on.

Nice!

2008-06-20: my Tyrell envy has reached its zenith! It is a real shame we cannot buy them here. You guys!
(more, more, more)

Looks like frames would be about $1400 CDN for SI, and $2400 CDN for PKZ...
I like the look of the SI though... I don't "get" the seatstay design ("Slant Design") on the PKZ.

PS. What is special about the "Limited" models, apart from the paint jobs?
