Nice bike...! I love the setup you have. A question, maybe silly one, lightweight wheels are envy or is it just the stickers on envy hoops?

Yes you can. Just contact Frankie B with your new name.

Very excellent choice there my friend. :thumbup: Welcome to the Lynskey family. The gray metal lives on.

How about SuitNTiguy. :noidea:

So here you go, lots of better quality pics. Tried the new saddle out this morning and it seems promising :D I have got some Praxis rings winging their way from the US courtesy of fellow WW Roberto, I'm gonna fit my M5 callipers as soon as I get the front back from M5 in the Netherlands after getting repaired and I'm gonna fit a set of Conti Sprinters.

Here are some updated pictures of my Helix, now with Praxxis chainrings, M5 callipers, Extralite OC stem and Conti Sprinter tubs, just enough clearance on the frame and rear calliper for 22's. Still plan to fit some Alligator or similar cables, carbon front mech, seat clamp and top cap, possibly lose the remaining red, I'm thinking black Hologram crank bolts and Ti chain ring bolts.

Not a lot of clearance on that rear calliper lol and I had to modify the brake blocks to get them high enough on the rim. Definitely no room for mudguards :lol:

Congrats, BeeBee30.
So nice.
And just keeps getting nicer.
Leave the red, it is a nice dash of color.

Looks even better. The Extralite stem with the bolts at the front of the forks looks more elegant. I'm using the same stem on my upcoming build.

Much better pics. Congrats.

Thanks for the positive comments guys, a Ti rig is very new to me but I am loving its ride qualities.
