finally received the completed bike from sacha a couple of weeks ago. as expected, it turned out great and is a complete blast to ride. can't say enough good things about working with sacha - it's definitely worth the wait.
i'm running it as a singlespeed right now, but it can be set to fixed easily. set it up with vintage campy cobalto / SR pista components and phil hubs laced to some sweet chrome rims sacha provided. other parts include phil BB, and a cinelli 64 giro bars. he also put together the color palette, and i'm more than pleasd with the outcome.
