Stunning. Love the attention to detail, gorgeous lugs, etc.
Yep FNB and I will shared the thought soon as I get home.
Congrats on the frame set, Johnny is a cool kat !
N i i i i i c e !!!
i love his headbadges.
and the frames are cool too.
That's the best b'day present you could wish for. Beautiful!
If you are dissatisfied with your life, return unused portion for partial refund.
very nice...clean and sharp.
ride it hard.
i am waiting for a call too, from bj.
Would you mind PM ing me and giving me a rough idea how much one of these frames would cost? I absolutely love fancy lugs.
Stunning color and build quality, congrats on this beauty!! What is that frame made out of now??
thanks for the nice words, all.
they are newvex lugs and it's a mix of columbus tubing (zona and foco, i believe).
i think it's got dedacciai fork blades, which are more elegant than the columbus.
custom coast stem (which is unbelievable - i almost can't bear to ride it, it's so pretty).
the paint job is very nice, but not joe bell class work (and coast admits it - a basic paint job is part of the reason why he can offer such nice prices). the whole fork crown was painted to match, but the painter failed to sand the chrome properly so the paint didn't adhere and peeled right off.
this is not a big deal to me, as i know i'm going to have it scratched and dinged up in no time, but a great painter would not have made this mistake.
as it's built up in the picture:
custom coast steel frame, fork, stem
suzue promax hubs laced to non-machined silver velocity fusion rims
campy 165mm fluted pista cranks
campy ACH BB
49 x 18 gearing
nitto 125 38cm bars
MKS RX-1 pedals with MKS double track straps
thompson elite post
chris king gripnut headset
blue rubino tires
btw, i just put about 30 miles on this thing and it's amazing...
it corners like it's on rails - riding up to central park, i was seeking out as many clear corners as i could find so i could dig into the drops and really fly through them.
very nice...stem is freakin great
oh, and someone said the seattube looks way long, but it's the angle of the photo.
the ST is 57.5 c-c and the TT is 59 c-c
now i wanna coast too!! maybe i'll just spend all my dough since i'm already in debt up to me eyeballs for da IF which should be ready this week! (man, i'm gettin' to actually like ramen! )
dude, your new ride is SEX! pure sex!
That bike is beautiful! Cheers. Love the stem. Be sure treat it like the incredible machine that it is. By which I of course mean, "Ride the hell out of it".

I'd kill just to get one of those stems. I've emailed them to see how much one would run.
you probably won't have to kill, though.Originally Posted by pathdoc
The work on those track ends is AMAZING.Originally Posted by brunning
