Blown Away By Baum: Part 3 - Coretto build complete

We've had lots of interest in our Baum Coretto GT Edition, which we wrote about in: Part 1 and Part 2. And while I've been too busy for a full review, we have now built her up and figured we'd throw some pics and details out there... The Build: - Dura Ace 7900 complete groupset - 3T provides their Funda Team Fork Dorico LTD seatpost, Ergonova LTD Bar, and ARX Team stem - Dash form.7 carbon saddle (with triple density foam) - Handlebra leather bar wrap Weight = 15 lbs on the DOT.

Set built with Tune hubs and Sapim CX-Rays."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_461" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="Dash 60 gram special-edition silver form.7 saddle glistens in the sunshine. Pretty comfy too!"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_462" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="These wheels were built with Ambrosio F20 rims and Dura Ace hubs - so smooth."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_464" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="Hiding in the bushes - Handlebra leather bar tape is sublime and we've got black, white and brown!"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_463" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="As this foggy pic demonstrates, neon-orange highlights actually make me feel safer.  Cool and functional too."][/caption] The Baum boys build bikes with such amazing attention to detail.  Every bike is custom, from tube-specs to geometry, and of course paint! The result is amazing - light, agile handling yet stable, and just super smooth. (Paul K's joke)  We've also built up the Ristretto, so come check them out in person!
