I'll play. I'm on year 7 of my 5-year plan for a custom bike,

Builder - TBD. I will say I am designing and fabricating the lugs (3D stainless steel printing).

Bike - The ultimate commuter. Columbus XCR tubing. Custom rear rack & bags. Custom porter handle. Custom lighting and battery pack.

Paint - A variation of chromevelato, clear-tinted paint over polished stainless steel. I'm thinking Gloria "flames".

Group - Cottered steel fluted cranks with single Gloria ring. Custom FB "Baldini" 3-piece fixed/free flip-flop hubs with Stella spokes to Grand Bois 32H rims. Leaning to Paul brakes at this time.

Tires - First tires are the 700c 30mm Grand Bois.

Cockpit/seatpost - Custom condorino bars/stem/levers with integrated lighting system. Perhaps the Miche Supertype post.

Saddle - Brooks Cambium

Headset - Cane Creek

Pedals - Custom cages applied to MKS Sylvan bodies

Fenders - Tiered aluminum, not sure of brand yet but possibly VO with custom integrated rear light.

Rendering from 4 years ago, so not up to date.
