i believe this is the only place you can get them in the uk

i very much doubt there is any time saving on the flat over a standard H3

Very nice work, Samu. :thumbup:
It's great your making your own frames/components, really super.

Wow samu! Great work, everytime I see your bikes I'm in awe. If i remember correctly, building bikes is just a hobby for you too?

Thanks! Yes, it's just a hobby. I like technical problems and nice bikes...i like to help people how hate poorly developed parts. As I do...

My CF TT-bike is still coming...It should me ready for Scandinavian M-30 champpionchips in Danmark but I fear thet it will not make it to there. I have bad shortake of time. Today I got order for giant ti-road bike for guy how has previusly ordered giant ti-cross bike (he is changing all his Cannondale's for my ti-bikes somehow,he claims they are stiffer??? and more comfortable than Cannondale's...I know that I chose special tube sizes for him because 64cm C-T slope frame is BIG!) and I have reservation for some silly ti-mtb bar,track TT bar,X-stiff ti-mtb/SS-stems, some seatposts etc.

Riding/racing is feels sometimes excuse for product development....

Nowhere...just kidding. :D

I have done these for everyone how have wanted but just for fun. Specially for large or small people or special needs like SS,track or disk only cross bikes. (This is not a add but I have one ti-fork for V-brakes and cross frame+fork (all new) for sale. )

Those ti-stems are raising popularity , 120mm is 113-118g and they are safer than light alloy stems. And stiff enought for racing for big boys...
