Frame + seatpost came in at 1550g-ish. 6.45kg fully built, but another 300-400 grams could easily be shaved off the grouppo/stem/saddle/bar. Bar tape alone is over 100g, which is atrocious.

Enjoy.

That bar tape also looks atrocious ;)

Lovely bike, though!

I agree!

Just had this sucker in the drawer for over a year now, so I figured what the heck. :D

Nice bike but why have the rear dérailleur cable run along the top tube?

Fantastic looking bike, ticks all the boxes apart from the bar tape.

I've never really seen the point of Ti up until now; maybe i'm getting old ;-)

But i'm liking this lots!!
:thumbup:

Is there an option to make the seatpost topper with more layback?

Thanks. Ti has its unique beauty and one doesn't have to be old to appreciate it. I got my first ti bike when I was 21 and I still have a weak spot for it.

Yes, you can get a topper with a bit more setback, although the geometry is already adjusted for no-setback. Seat angle is 73 degrees while most 52-53 frames have approx. 74 degrees head angle.

Re: rear shifting cable, yes it was deliberate and actually quite neat. Shifts like a dream.

Mind was pretty fixed on a Parlee next but maybe a Ti now. Gorgeous bike!

Great! :thumbup: Clean lines and not too obtrusive logos. Nice head tube area. Stem matches nicely.

I think it looks better than a Lynskey or Moots.

Very beautiful looking bike! The logo and falcon head design look great too after all the hullabaloo about the old font...

Doesn't the RD cabling along the TT and then seat stay add another curve/bend where it comes off the stay? Do you feel the shifts are as quick as traditional routing along the DT and chain stay?

Edited to add: Do you feel there is an advantage (other than perhaps greater height adjustment?) of the long seat mast topper versus say a small topper or a long integrated post with a short/stubby seatpost (like on the BH G5 or Time RXRS)?

Wow that frame is gorgeous. Is the seatpost a seatmast-topper like Trek's design for Madones?
