Recently visited Bespoke 2014 where I fell in love with a titanium bike from the guys at Wittson.
purchased a Suppresio frame and then set about building up a reasonable spec bike..
The guys at Wittson are just super professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with...


here is the results..

on the scales at 7.9kg, as photographed, plenty of scope for weight reduction,
as the tyres & wheels alone come in at 2.5kg
am still deciding what summer wheels to get..

Is that a 44mm headtube with a 1 1/8 straight fork? The integration from head tube to the fork look proportionately balance. Nice!

One of the most beautiful ti bike I've seen!
Would you do a spec list and maybe pm me a price for the frame?

The color is right. What else can you tell us about the frame? How does it ride?

Absolutely gorgeous. There's something about the ISP that resonates with me. Just beautiful.

Very beautiful.

The enforcement at the seat-tube welds makes the frame look almost like a non-ISP. Made me do a double-take to figure out where the clamp was.

The frame looks amazing.
I don't like the fact the Enve logo is so loud while Wittson is barely visible.

thanks for all the nice comments..
i ve just got back from a 50mile ride this morning.. I'm feeling very very :D wow just wow.. what an amazing smooth ride...

will do a bit of write up later and specification list...

re the the forks.. they came with the frame...
ive seen some posts where guys have blacked out logos or logos with just a thin white line and black in the middle.. the white decals are under a clear coat so I'm guessing a permanent marker. Im considering having a go with dark grey marker pen so will have to research this before or play with some stickers before applying paint...


threw on some alternative wheels with black tyres to see what look it gave..

Nice bike.

The bottle cage looks like Titec.

We can find it from eBay now.
