Flat bar 'cross bike

This bike will go to a team mate who lives in the bay area. He prefers the flat bar setup with a single ring. He gets on the podium a lot so I don't try and talk him out of it.
 there's some serious color co-ordination on this bike. The red/white/blue of the French flag is mimicked in the headset and spoke nipples. The chain guard was made from an old Dura Ace chain ring.....I just turned it down on the lathe. Another reason not to throw those old chain rings away......
The whole bike as you see it weighs in at 16 lb. 4 oz.  very light for a 'cross bike -even a race bike like this one.

Is that a new logo design on the down-tube? It looks nice!
