I cannot stop looking at this bike. Definitely an inspiration. I love all the details - especially the bars, fork colors, and saddle.

From now on we can stop posting our bikes, as they will ever be a step below this piece of art.

The bars are super gangster. I wish someone made a road barstem like that.

Just curious...what is the gearing? I assume you're going to race it? ST seems pretty damn close to the tire especially after seeing it in person.

First off, WOWWWWWWW what an incredible bike. Second, though, I was wondering what the BT Stealth lacked? Or did it just not have the exclusivity and craftsmanship of a custom Baum bike? I was thinking about trying to get a BT Blade

Awsome pics and bike Todd :)

and I wish the BT was bigger, my bike is still cracked, have not bought a new one since October. Would have got your BT and helped your cash flow.

The Front is a 49 and I'm pretty sure the back is a 14. You can see the pics by John Prolly - http://prollyisnotprobably.com/2012/03/ ... um-cycles/ - the spacing is spot on, I'm guessing the original pics were rushed and the thing wasn't set up spot on.

The BT was not a perfect fit, and I really wanted to do something different - lots of BT's in Australia... after having a very nice road bike by Baum, I thought I'd try something different and try a Ti track bike.

Had one of these 'girlfriend' things once.

She asked me to choose between her and the bike.

Told her I'd miss her but would find ways to cope.
