I took the studio photo bike (Velocite Selene Competitor+) outside for a quick photo session. This build is a bit less austere or classical than my own Selene Entrant bike. The Competitor+ is more of a bruiser – criterium race rocket actually.
The build is a customized standard Competitor build (ie. Shimano Ultegra and extras), except for the TRP R950W carbon brakes, Velocite TLC31 seatpost, FSA SL-K stem, Velocite MONC50 wheelset and Vittoria Diamante Pro tires. I have not priced this build but even with the expensive wheels it should come in at around USD 2100 or just a bit above.
We’ll try to get this bike off to the studio tomorrow…and please tell me if you spot any build mistakes or oddities before we proceed with the studio session. I already noticed that the front wheel was on backward (can tell by the QR lever position).
Ironically, even though the Selene frame just arrived, it will be the first complete bike to get the photo studio treatment for a simple reason that we have enough stock 🙂
