This is my new team bike for the season courtesy of my new best friends at MTS Cyclesport in Durham. http://www.mtscyclesport.com It is the first Ti and first team bike I have ever had, and to say I am happy with it is a massive understatement. The workship and manipulation of the tubes is very impressive and needs to be seen in the flesh to get the whole picture.

ML Litespeed Vortex
Easton EC90 SLX fork
Full Dura Ace
Time pedals
Pinarello Carbon pin
SLR saddle
Deda Newton oversized bars and stem
Cane Creek S2 headset
Reynolds carbon cage (waiting for the second one to come in stock!)
Fibre Lyte carbon jockey wheel cage, with carbon headset top cap to follow
Mavic Ksyrium SL's
Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX clinchers

When I first rode it, the first thing that struck apart from its' speed, is the comfort of it over bumps where my old Bianchi XL Carbon and Pinarello Surprise would have battered me. It is a hugely comfortable ride to say that it sprints better than anything I have ever ridden. Wholley recommended.

It weighed in at 16.22lbs or 7.36kg.

For those that are going to say it is too small for me then don't bother as it fits superbly as I have rather odd dimensions! The saddle had also been made level and lowered ever so slightly since it was taken.

If these pictures don't work then I am knackered!

Cheers, James.

OK it is too small for you but it is my size so strip in down and send me your frame! :? Actually I rode a fellow forum member's Ghisallo that is a M/L and fit me very well at 183 cm tall and the owner of the bike is 188 cm.
With that said, I too love titanium as a frame material. Aslo it is a very awesome looking, and I'm sure it does perform well. Enjoy it!

Here is a link to my current main bike and please don't ell me its too small.
