So many nice bikes in this thread.
Long time lurker first time poster.
I thought I'd share some pictures of my No. 22 Reactor.
6.94kg as shown on the first picture.
Still not 100% done with stem position.

May I ask what fork are you using? My steel frame follows a very similar concept to your "do everything" bike but the Columbus hiver fork I use doesn't have that much front clearance and I may upgrade to something like yours in the future. Thanks!!

The name on the fork kinda gives it away - it's a Whisky fork :)

Whisky No 7 RD+ to be specific, it's the only carbon fork with that kind of clearance.

Kinesis do a tapered one that I used on my last Heretic, but it does 32mm max.

I know the whiskey fork. It wasn't available when I ordered my frame set and it is quite a bit more expensive than the columbus hiver but I have it in mind for a future upgrade. The kinesis however i didn't have it on the radar. Truth is that back in the time i asked Columbus and they told me that the hiver fits 32mm wide tires but far from it, 30mm already makes me a bit uncomfortable, the tire fits quite close to the fork blades.

The Kinesis Tracer (remebered the name now) rubbed during cornering with 32mm tires, but 30 is fine.

Here's a pic with 32s:

Was better with 30s:

Over the last 3 months since I decided to get a titanium bike, I think I have gone through every page on this thread.

I have really loved the process, decided on the builder, the spec, the geometry, the parts...etc etc etc. Its been a brilliant experience.

And now its done. Its come out better than my wildest dream.

I wanted a winter bike. Permanent full length mudguards, but with di2 and rim brakes, and a really tight geometry.

Never going to be a weight weenie, but thought I would post it here as I got so much inspiration from all of you.

The highlights.....
Burls Ti Frame
Tracer fork
Chris King headset
Ultegra di2 (mostly)
Rotor SRM
Ambrosio Nemesis
SKS mudguards
Thomson stem and seat tube
Bang on 9kg, so not light, but it wasn't supposed to be. More due to the components than the frameset.

Took a little while getting it ready. Seat post keeps on slipping. But its getting there.

Its just stunning to look at, but riding it is really great too. The weight of the bike is taking a while to get used to.

That's a great looking frame! Even if it is a porker ;)

An update on my 2017 Waltly built last November. I've been riding Challenge 27c Paris-Roubaix on Zonda C17 wheels and really enjoying the bike. I appreciate the geometry choices I made more off-road than on. On a rocky trail like this, the rear steering is very helpful. On the road it can be tiring, but that could be the rider's core fitness.

Trying my first tubulars, made a mess with the Mastik One. 7.32kg
