Love my Ti SS commuter. A total treat every time I swing a leg over her!

true, your Litespeed commuter looks awesome! Hat's off. My rat-bike looks quite a tramp compared to this.

Looks great, what a commuter!

How do you like those Cane Creek hoods? I had those on my SS CX bike and couldn't stand the shape. I ended up switching them out to the SRAM hoods (without shifters) and they have been awesome. They make one with carbon levers too which is pretty cool.

Ghisallo :beerchug: . All you need to do now is loose the decals on the frame!


Agreed. The only issue is that an old finish like this one will leave ghost images of the decals, until it is nicely re-brushed.

Don't think I've posted my Hampsten ti Gran Paradiso here; received in Aug 2011 and still feel like I kid with a brand new toy. Steve and Co are great to work with!

Image

This cell phone pic is from my trip this summer. Where better to have a Hampsten than in Andy's backyard in the Colorado mountains? Set up for solo unsupported riding with Nemesis/Veloflex Roubaix, Arundel Tubi bag with spare sewup, and Blackburn frame pump in the NDS seatstay old-school style. And yes, that's a pie-plate 12-29 on the back to go with the 50/36 Q Rotor rings on the front -- hey, I live at 867 feet in Wisconsin!

Photo is just off the top of Swan Mountain road outside Dillon/Frisco/Breckenridge. I didn't descend as fast as the pros in last years USA ProCycling Challenge! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3PWEU5tIuI

Nice bike!

There are so many good independent builders around these days...why would you bother going to any of the big mass producing companies...

Alot of nice bikes in here for a ti lover as myself.

Heres mine over the years but a few bikes whos pics got lost over the years.


Tuscany wasent superstiff. but very comfy.
Image


Tiarrow monster cross was a beast with pretty od geo. A great do it all bike with a pretty flexy headtube.
Image


Legend was beautifull but was on the small side.
Image


Tiarrow road was a very light frame but also on the small side. More comfy than racy.
Image


This Tiarrow i built for my dad who does not ride it enough.
Image


Then came my all time favorite the Moots compact. Stiff enough and a great ride. Good enough to deserve 2 photos.
Image
Image

Then perhaps the prettiest of them all the Merlin. It had the best looking ti seatsays i ever saw. Took a 28-30mm and was abit of a ti frenzy project.
Image
Image


Latest is a Moots pshyclo-x
