What is the best choice:

Litespeed: Huge fan of them, looks awesome, but what with warranty in Belgium ?
Lynskey: Looks nice but not my taste
GT: edge ti: looks great but delivery problems ?

Are you looking for new, used or custom geometry? The Lynskey's started Litespeed. I have owned a few Litespeeds and great bikes. My 2008 Lynskey R320 is the best titanium bike I have ever owned. I do have other but nothing else comes close.

FWIW, fit should always be your guide to a frame purchase. It doesn't matter what the brand is since if you fit on it poorly or could fit better on another brand that the brand that does not fit is a poor choice.

Talk to Jim Walker of Enigma. I have an Echo and it's excellent.

Agree totally re fit, and that's why I went to them to get a good fit.

I love people that ask advice with new threads and then don't bother to ever respond to the thread they started and especially answer some basic questions.

54 is the frame I need. (1m72)
weight is 70 about 75 with clothing and stuff...
I ride only uphill or downhill, almost no flat....
And I will use the bike about 4 times a year I think, I always use the sandman....

But I just want a nice titanium racebike ;-)
