Nice has been for centuries an important port and one of the most beautiful cities in the southern parts of France. Essential for Greek commerce in the Mediterranean Sea, Nice became a major port and it was eventually seized by the Romans. The French and Italians have contested the port for a long time with the former claiming it for good in and since then it also emerged into a popular tourist destination. Nowadays, it has one of the busiest airports in France and attracts tourists from all over the continent, for reasons that are made obvious by the gorgeous Framed Nice Art.
Artists also found the decor appealing and many French Nice On No Frame spent a lot of time in the city or wandering aimlessly along the coastline.
Henri Matisse fell in love with these places and spent long summers here, which resulted in a nice collection of paintings that can now be admired in the assembly of Framed Nice Art. Sign Up for Exclusive Offers:.

They may look slick, but changing components to fine tune fit might be awkward.
Trek's BB90 bottom bracket uses a none standard bearing size for example, who knows what availability will be like in a decade. BB30 on the other hand uses standard bearings that you'll be able to buy from any industrial parts catalogue check out the likes of NTN, SKF for very high quality bearings. If the geometry is right, have you considered the Mason bikes? The same people that make Hunt wheels I believe. They look stunning and are easily within budget.
Thanks for the various replies; it's making me think more about what I'm after Strael looks good, although would prefer more of a slope in the top tube. Me going down the disc brake route and wanting to keep the weight to no more than the current bike's means that most steel frames will struggle, I guess. I've looked at Rourke stuff, and have zero doubt they know their craft extremely well and would build me Nice On No Frame great-fitting frame, but I'm not really into the aesthetics of how they look quite a trad look and weight might well be an issue.
Steel has no emotional tug for me, so it's just down to "what will work best" for me and appeal to me. I have had a look at the Mason frames online and one could certainly tick plenty of my boxes - I am slightly wary of stuff that's developed a bit of a cult following though as I'm not a crowd follower. But definitely an option that I'll look at. The steel may be too heavy for me, and having ridden ally bikes for donkey years, a change of material is more appealing to me.
I believe he's got a Ti Aspect model coming along, but budget would probably be blown by that. Re power meter, I've been "training" indoors with smarttrainer power and have found to my surprise that I quite like the analysis and numbers stuff. Not obsessively so, but more out of interest, and I quite like the idea of having a PM outdoors for pacing, analysis and what have you.
If I'm having a bike built anway, and it fits in the "budget", then I'll go for one. I love a brushed Ti finish on frames probably why I've kept the current 'fake' Ti main bike so long so given the right geometry, a major tick in the aesthetics box for Titanium.
Toyed with buying one a few years back but never got round to it. More of an emotional tug than steel, but not to "must have" levels. Never ridden a Ti frame. The one-time rational engineer in me wonders whether it's not been largely eclipsed now as a frame material by CFunless you're subject to a big emotional tug from it which I understand. Comment noted re Hunt wheels. I'll try to read those threads and see what the alternatives are no shouty logos for me though, discrete look preferred.
Any quick pointers appreciated The current bike has pretty racey geometry, I believe, but I'm open to something a bit more "endurance". I'll keep the current bike and stick it at a relative's where I do shorter rides. Might be a positive if the new bike was a bit less racey, as it'd generally be used for longer hillier rides from home, quite often using back lanes where road surfaces can be crappy, and I wouldn't say to an ability to soak this up well better and maybe leave me feeling fresher.
That GCN bike does look good. Do they not mention the maker in the video? Maybe you could make some enquiries. If you want something truly unique, as you describe yourself as not a crowd follower, then custom might be the way to go. I doubt you'll be riding anything custom in though, what's the average time from initial contact to completion for a custom frame?
I agree titanium looks cool, but I'd have to ride one before spending the money. Maybe I'm just ignorant, but it seems like aluminium weight and tube profiles for carbon money. Personally I like the look of high end carbon bikes better, but that's just me.
Search for the C3 thread. Don't pay over the odds for a C3. I find the "model year" cycle adopted by most larger firms to be a pain the r5e : handy if you luckily time your purchase when prices have been slashed assuming someone still sells what you're after - often not the casewhile leaving you feeling you're paying over the odds the rest of the time. Maybe it's just me I've taken another look at the Mason Definition, and it does tick plenty of boxes. With a Di2 disc build I might well struggle to match never mind beat the current bike's weight, but might be possible with some lighter carbon wheels.
Not Nice On No Frame critical issue. Sensible thing would be to give Mason a visit and ride one, but I'm nowhere near so means a big job breaking out. Having got potential carbon and alloy candidates or at least reference pointsI probably need to take a look at Ti. Where to start?
Maybe a custom ti frame from Burls? I appreciate this is going against what you said in your most recent post, so please ignore if no interest. Nice On No Frame built up a fairly lightweight Don't miss the roadbike at all, probably as I don't ride pacelines.
A lightweight b x 42 setup tubeless on a lightweight wheel isn't much slower than a x25 in my mind am using a gm wheelset. If you're considering moving toward a 'gravel' ti frame wider tyre clearance then I'd probably first look around for a test ride on a similar bike.
You may even be able to find an off-the-peg frameset with the frame geo and specs that suit you. Just get a Rose x-lite 6 disc ultegra Di2 and be done with it. Money left over for a cheap winter bike.
