So I finally had enough of press fit bottom brackets and decided to go back to threaded, I always fancied a titanium frame so when i saw this become available I sensed a project coming on....

Painted the forks matt black, fitted a new King headset and refitted original Enigma decals.

Then built her up with SR and a Chorus crank, finished off with Deda and a Fizik Arione R1 saddle.

When I rode it the S Works tarmac sat idle, I love this thing! So smooth, especially on our crappy roads.

7.7kg complete with cages, pedals etc. Not the lightest but the way it rides more tham makes up for it.

Nice work, I just wonder why did you bother to replace the logos?
Removing them (along with the paint) saves mass - which is the point of WeightWeenies.

Besides, ENVE is not paying you to advertise for them, nor will they acknowledge any warranty claim since you removed the paint, which their lawyers would claim (incorrectly, but a court will not counter) that the paint comprised part of the original structural element for the fork's safety. But most importantly they are not paying you to advertise for them, why are you advertising for them??

Just kept them pretty standard looking is all. I'm not worried about warranty so I'm going to get all bent out of shape over it.

I quite liked the orange/bronze setup.. I was wondering about making it matte black and putting the decals on afterward too since they come like that when you buy it off the shelf.

Lovely bike, regreting selling my Merlin XLM, mtb. So easy so easy to clean, and looked like new after 10 years of hrd mtb’ing. I might one day, sell all my carbon bikes. And buy one titanium all year bike.

Looks great...about the only thing I would change is shorten the brake cable housing at the rear break.
