That bike looks bad! I know its not everyone's cup of tea but its refreshing to see people still trying to make stuff that at least looks good. I don't know about the 8 inch bar drop but hey, some people are more flexible than others.

I like the angles but I could never ride something like that. Maybe on the track but seems like it would be a pain on the street.
A while back I had an idea to make a similar bike but life got in the way. I was planning the BB around the BB86 standard so I could press fit some bearings into the frame for a set of Omnium cranks. That would also give me more lateral real estate on the BB shell to flare the seat tube and create a stiffer BB/seat tube joint.

Which Columbus set did you end up using? I couldn't find anything with that seat mast in my catalog. Also, what are you using for your seat post? I see that Columbus now has the mini post designed for seat masts. I can't tell from the photo if you are using that or another internal solution.
