Timo, truly stunning! The black and white theme is just awesome! I don't usually care for painted titanium but your bike is the exception.

It's painted by Brady van Dalen (www.specialpaintwork.nl). The logos are painted too and it has four layers of clearcoat. The finished frame is 1304 grams on a digital scale.

As shown here it's 7.6 kilos (Record 32h hubs, Sapim spokes, Open Pro rims, Chorus 13/26 cassette, Record QR's and Schwalbe Stelvio tires). With the Lightweights (Record 12/25 cassette. Tune QR's, Dugast tubes) it will go down to 6.7 kilos.

Now it looks stunning with the wheel and tyre combination. Looks very artful in black and white.
