i decided my extreme weenie days are over (for the moment hehe) and opted, after riding aluminium boxes for so long, that titanium was the way to go. A very good offer on a moots vamoots frameset sped up things earlier than expected, so here is my ride for 2007+.
I wanted a clean all-polished silver look with as few black or cfk bits as possible. Hence the lower gropu campy parts. Cant say they feel different than the all-rcord stuff on my now-#2 bike.. if anything, they feel more solid :D


Frame: Moots Vamoots '98
Fork: Reynolds Ouzo Pro
Headset: Chris King
Stem: old style Moots 1"
Seatpin: Moots straight
Saddle: AX Lightness Sprint
Handlebar: Nitto
Ergos: Campa Centaur 10-spd
Derailleur: Campa Record 10spd 2003 (looking for an all-alloy Chorus, but no hurry here)
BB+crank: Campa Chorus triple
Pedals: Keywin TI (not on pic)
front derailleur: Campa Chorus triple
Brakes: Campa Chorus Sceleton
Bottlecage: Ciussi Inox
Wheelset #1 (on pic) Tune MIG/MAG180/32 hole with CXP33 + Veloflex Pave
Wheelset #2 Lightweight D&O with all-black Veloflex Servizio Corsa

Spacers on pic are a preliminary solution, still tooking for Ti 1" ones
Triple chainwheel due to knee injury ;)

Weight with Lightweights: 7.5kg

Great sounding bike Martin. Glad the knee is healing. Moots can make you 1" spacers.

Very nice although it too can be built light if the desire is there.

You may have to moderate yourself and move this to the gallery! :oops:

The gallery.. ummm, i'd rather have one place called ROAD where everyone can see everything. It's not as if we get thousands of posts a day there :wink:

Cool bike you got there Martin :) very original

Very nice Martin. I especially like the way your deep drop, classic style handlebar looks. For a "heavy" bike, 7.5kg isn't bad at all. Enjoy it.
