Photo: Chris' Strada, champagne paint with black logos.  If you look close, you can see the tapered seat and down tubes.Photo: Finished frame, Chris will be most likely running an ENVE carbon fork with this one.Photo: Dedacciai tapered seat and down tube, a straight top tube, nice light oval chainstays and some double tapered Columbus seat stays.Photo: I've finished up the Ellis dropouts and ground the seat stay tabs down closer to their final shape so I have less work to do after the stays are attached.Photo: Tubes are all mitered and the stays are slotted, now I just have to prep the lugs, braze that small binder into the seat lug and clean everything up for tacking.Photo: Everything dry fit up in the fixture, if you look close you can see the tapered seat and down tube, somewhat Serotta-esque.Photo: Finished down tube lug, I used simple split guides on the head tube rather than threaded adjusters because Chris is going to use inline cable adjusters which should be easier to use and will  cause less cable housing interference with the front brake.Photo: Top tube lug.Photo: XL bottom bracket.Photo: Ellis dropouts, all finished up, I rounded the entrance to the slot a bit to hopefully make wheel installation even quicker.Photo: Seat lug with a modified single bolt binder.Photo: Fastback stays!
