Hello,

After a steel, carbon and aluminium bike i had to comlpete my collection with a titanium bike. I bought a Litespeed Vortex frame from 2000 and together with my dad build the bike. It is not a weight weenie but man does it ride great! (Sorry for the crappy pictures i used my phone.)

Here is the list

Frame: Litespeed Vortex 2000
Fork: THM Stiletto
Group: Limited Campagnolo titanium recor 10v (red numbers)
Brakes: Campagnolo record skeloton
Cranks: Campagnolo record compact
Handlebar: Syntace Racelite2 Carbon
Stem: Tune Geiles teil 2013
Top cap: Carbon-Ti
Wheels: H Plus son Archetype rims with record hubs and Sapim super spokes made by Bikexperto
Saddle: Selle San Marco Zoncolan
Bar tape: Brooks
Bottle cage: King titanium
Pedals: Look Keo Sprint
Cables: Campagnolo

It rides amazingly comfortable and it will be a great touring bike. In september i will go to the south off france for holida and some riding trough the mountains and i will do this on this bike. I can't wait!
