Why you like titanium so much ah? Forget about XTR . Xtr Very heavy leh.
Well, that's why it's a project bike, I'm trying to do it up using a certain series of components and with weight in mind. Also, XTR may be heavier but IMHO the difference in performance is usually well worth the weight.
Jer: good advice, thanks, although the rims you suggested are both not distributed in my corner of the world, which is a shame cos I'm really looking into those AC 350s right now. Ti BBs won't be a problem, I'm just 65kg which is... uh... carry the 2, minus the 8... umm... I dunno exactly, but under 175lbs fer sure!
