Copy this in steel? Sounds a little speculoos to me ;)

Front wheel is 650, rear wheel is 700.
The Speculoos version has a strutural tube over the rider's shoulder. It make the rear part of the frame very stiff.

Nice lowracer, but why did you put a traditional racing handlebar on the bike ? It does not seems to be practical at all ....

This classic DF handle bar was a requirement of my client. I ried it and it works very well. The upper position is similar to the second KA with its aero handle bar. The lower position gives you an alternative position for long distance but also gives you a very good position for stopping and a lot of power because the levers are huge.

Hello Malric,

Another work of art! I have a question on the head tube. How are the rocking forces that the head tube transmits to the frame handled? Is the strength of the cf wrap around the head tube enough to prevent a crushing force on the foam core or is there some other reinforcement done to prevent that?

Thanks!

Any way to get a pic of you actually on the bike? I'd like to see how it looks with a person on it, thanks!
