DARKSTAR - Redux

The DARKSTAR represents my professional experience and opinions on what dictates a properly sorted complete machine.
Every DARKSTAR is designed to suit the riding personalities of its owner. The DARKSTAR integrates my viewpoints with your needs as a cyclist to yield your optimal Road, "Club Racing", or Cyclocross machine.
The DARKSTAR is assembled to suit. Should you desire a certain handlebar or a particular saddle etc... , I am happy to accommodate.

Forks for the road model are ENVE 2.0s which come in 4 different rake options. For an ultra-light road build, the ENVE 1.0 fork is optional.

The tubing is Columbus XCR Stainless Steel. Different tubing diameters and shapes are selected to tune the ride just for you.

This DARKSTAR weighs in at a respectable 15.5 lbs.

I selected standard diameter Columbus XCR tubing for this frame in particular. Should the Columbus XCR UOS (uber oversize) tubing be best for you, that is exactly what you will receive.

The logos are simply the raw stainless steel "masked out" during the paint process. The DARKSTAR then receives extra clear coats, sanding, then polishing ensuring protection and a smooth transition finish over the negative space logo area.

This unit was designed with a standard, threaded bottom bracket. BB30 and PF30 are options as well as full internal routing for Shimano's Di2 system.

The head tube is a standard 1-1/8 design. Simple, proven, effective.

The seat stays are straight and elegant. The DARKSTAR is everything you need and nothing you don't.

This DARKSTAR uses ovalized chain stays to ensure proper fitment of wide, Pave-style tubular tires.

The DARKSTAR is fabricated by hand, from start to finish in the USA.

Staying consistent with the form meets function theme, a standard, non-integrated seatpost is employed for ease of saddle height adjustment, saddle set-back positioning and travel/packaging/transportation.

To eliminate paint chipping from the clamping and un-clamping of quick release skewers, the dropouts are hand polished, raw stainless steel.

Though black is very striking, You have the choice of any single colour paint on your DARKSTAR frame and fork.

The DARKSTAR embodies technology, pedigree and elegance. Be the DARKSTAR.
The DARKSTAR is offered as a fully assembled Road, "Club Racer" style, or Cyclocross bicycle. Cost on a complete machine starts at 6100 USD nicely equipped. Cost as shown is 8750 USD.
