This week we bring you our latest Baum Corretto build, perfectly blending a stealthy look with a dab of subtle colors to bring a perfect touch of class. We built this for a client in Brazil who likes fast bikes, fast cars, and knows exactly what he wants. Let's dive into the details and take a closer look!

The core of the build is a custom Baum Corretto titanium frameset. This one came out of the paint booth with a mix of matte and gloss blacks and dark grays, plus a pop of Poison Ivy green in select areas. The paint matched ENVE seatpost, stem, and bars bring it all together.

We went with a Shimano Dura Ace Di2 groupset to keep the bike shifting. The latest model Dura Ace SRM power meter fits in perfectly.

Say hello to the iconic Baum GT headbadge.

The bike rolls on Enve SES 3.4 wheels with their brand new carbon hubs, which use CeramicSpeed bearings. Naturally, we matched them with Vittoria Corsa 25 G+ rubber. If you haven't noticed, we love these tires, with amped up durability and wet weather grip from the previous iteration of the Corsa.

Few things pair as nicely as deep brown leather and a sparkly darker green. The Brooks handlebar tape looks just right against the green stripes on the ENVE handlebars and post.

Finishing off the details are EE brakes and Look Keo Ti pedals. Dura Ace brakes are great but when you want to take it to the next level, EEs are the way go to. The same performance and oh so light. The black and brushed ti finish of the Keos match wonderfully with the DA group and the finish of the Baum frame.

That wraps up the details on this one. We're excited for it to land in Brazil and hear back on how it handles the roads around São Paulo. From here we'll leave you with a bit of a photo dump to chew on.
