Baum Corretto - GTR Grey Red

Custom handmade Baum bicycles are very desirable and are starting to become quite popular. This awesome Grey and Red Baum Corretto was recently delivered to a fellow local cyclist here in Melbourne, Australia.

The proud owner wanted a custom bike fitted to his body; with parts and components to his exact specification. The brief was for a bike that climbs, accelerates and handles exceptionally... by all accounts he very much got what he was looking for.

The build Specs of the bike are as follows:
Baum Corretto frame with GTR paint scheme
3T Funda Team forks
Campagnolo Super Record groupset with Titanium Ultra-Torque Carbon Crankset
3T seatpost, stem, bars and bar tape
ENVE 65/45 carbon clincher wheels with DT Swiss hubs
Continental GP4000s tyres
Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio saddle
Chris King headset
King titanium bottle cages
Speedplay Pedals

The complete bike (without pedals) weighs in at a very respectable 6.84kg.

A Baum is not cheap, but the quality is second to none and like many things in this world you get what you pay for.

On top of that, I've talked with a few Baum owners and all of them have had nothing but good things to say about dealing with Darren Baum and the overall buying experience.  No doubt this is another very happy Baum customer.

A big thanks to Brian for letting me feature the bike.
