    thx n8tron. This build was certainly a labor of love.

    The finish is brushed titanium with etched logos on the top and downtube.

    I'll post more photos as they come.

    I just moved some SPDs over from my MB. I'll have to stick with these for a while before I upgrade, saddle needs to come first. Glad to hear you are liking your Defy!

    Nice looking bike!
    How much does it weigh?
    Also what are the ride characteristics of Mg compared to steel/Ti and carbon?
    Very sweet looking ride!

    I weighed it for the first time today. With the 2005 Eurus, it's a little under 16 lbs.

    Magnesium is a difficult material to work with - extruding and welding. Paketa does it well. Mg is stiff, lighter than Ti with the dampening of carbon. And it's incredibly durable.

    I like the blue panels on the Parlee and the autumn picture is great. Wish my Kestrel had a splash of color like that.

    Also like the Paketa. exotic.

    Just took the plunge on a new frame. Do I have to wait until it is a complete bike to post here, or is it alright to post just the frame?

    Dude, those are the red version on the blue Rolf Vector Comps, I have on my Trek. I've never seen them in red. They are heavy has hell, like 2000g, but they are damn strong. I've been beating on mine for years. If TSURU flakes, I need a set for my new frame to train on....

    I'll think about it. I was planning a bike build and use them. If I do sell, I'll let you know.

    Yeah these wheels are getting rarer as the ones that I have seen are in bad shape. Mine has over 1300 miles and I have replaced 4 blades on the rears. Heavy - YES, but sweet looking! And they are great trainers!

    I'd be willing to give a few bucks for them. It would be cool to have a matching set for these.



    I like the wheels they are strong, and roll great, stay true, just heavy. Let me know if you decide to sell.
