I knew Litespeed did some very cool ti frame in the past, but the Kocmo frame I just got in is pretty amazing too. Judging by the threaded fork steerer I am guessing it is pretty old. Despite that, it features an airfoil shaped downtube and a machined fork crown.

Looks like the Litespeed Blade. What plans do you have for it?

No plans, just wanted to show it to you guys. I does look a lot like the Litespeed blade from a distance, but when you look at the down tube closely you will notice it has an actual airfoil shape, whereas the Blade just had ovalized tubing.

Nice bike! Never liked the Easton aero fork though (not on any bike for that matter).

The saddle is the new Bontrager serano RXL ....it's quite a classic look ...just trying to get used to it at the moment and keep you posted on it's long distance comfort .....

The easton aero forks seem to suit the Archon frame design quite well being chunkier ,but got the frame for a good price with the fork and chris king headset :thumbup:

That Moots looks fantastic, especially with the forks almost matching the frame. Very well done.
