Nice! I like colorful frames in general, and this one is very catchy :thumbup:
And for build with such a heavy frame/fork ... impressive final weight.

But 19c? Is that comfy enough?
At one point, many years ago, I tried 20c (ok, clincher), but it was unbearable (like I have wooden wheels) and after few weeks I throw away those tyres.

Very pleased with the outcome so far.

Looks shimmed to me (you can see the collar in the photo). Assume 28mm to 27.2mm

Love it. Grab a back up BB when u get a chance. That is my only suggestion.
