I took some better pics of the Hasa Darkstar and thought I would throw them up. I tried to take enough angles to give you an idea of the construction of the frame.

For those new to this frame, which has a long thread else where, these are an ebay special @ around 450, depending on when you buy. The small weighed out at 1000 grams and fully built, as seen, weighs 14.2 lbs. I has a custom headbadge and die cut decal kit made.

Nice build. What wheels are those ? Zipps ? I bought a set of zg 07 and tried them out on my 'Dale but I found them weaker than my Ultegra SL brakes. I just could not get them to grip as good as the SL's. I even upgraded the pads to Swiss Stop black pads but did not make much of a difference. Took them off and put the SL's back on. Now the zg07 are on eBay.

Thanks!

Reynolds Dv46T's

I've been riding zero gravs for 2.5 years and have no complants. They don't grab in the same manner as Campy or Shimano but the work well, IMO. I have two sets on differant rides.

Looks like it all came together well. Thanks for sharing. :)
It amuses me in a nice way to see these sterile frames built with nice gruppos. Like the PF ones too.
Hopefully the headbadge and decals create something a bit more interesting. Also, I was surprised with the multi-shaped and tampered tubes of the Hasa, which makes it a bit more visually interesting and hopefully was done to enhance the ride qualities of the frame.

I thought this was a mountain bike for a second!

That compact geo is pretty extreme. But as long as the virtual top tube fits, it's all good. Awesome build.

I just love how nowadays... the components cost more than the frame. Hopefully the big boys will lower their prices a bit. nawwwwwwt.

The effective TT on this frame is almost 53cm. I really can't decern between this compact STT and my other traditional frames. I was only able to get a handful of rides in on it before winter came to the NE, but my initial impressions were very positive.

I paid less than half for this frame then I did for my custom Italian frame 20 years ago and this one rides much better. Hard to believe.

Good morning,

It appears that all of you have expensive wheelsets and gruppos for this frame. Am I to assume that this frame is as good as frames that cost four times as much. if so that is very good news.
