Congratulations. A very nice build and good looking bike. Please add it to the show me your titanium bike thread since it's very deserving to be there.

Also a very nice weight for a titanium frame. My Lynskey R320 in a M/L is 1240 grams. Your frame appears to be a semi compact design but could be a compact due to size. Was it a good experience with the builder and much of a wait time?

The experience with Tom Kellogg was completely straightforward. It took about 6 months. These are now welded by Seven.

Completely sold on the orange panel and orange fork now that the bike is fully built.

Awesome! And ice on the cake is the very decent weight of the frame for its size. Together with the Supperleggera stuff and the Bora 35 it should be a smooth ride.

Very nice build! My bikes are built with almost the same spec (Bora35, SR11, Deda or 3T, Ti or CF Frames). I would be interested in a ride report, especially about the cornering and descent stability. My Lynskey R330 gives me plenty of confidence in almost all situations but compared to my CF rides it takes more skills to handle the bike on high speed downhill sections.

The supplied Brake Pads have good modulation in dry conditions, but my experiences in wet where catastrophic. The are ok on my Mavic CCU but not on the Boras.. :? .

Just on thing.. your front brake cable is way to short, but you might be aware of that already :roll:

Very nice bike, love the colour panels. Reminds me of Baum paintjobs.

I rode it this week-end in the alps and descended several cols with it and it handles great. The way a bike handles at speed downhill has nothing to do with the material IMO and much more with the quality of the build and the geometry. I like my bikes very stable so I asked Tom to replicate my Crumpton geometry and this bike is very close to my Crumpton (low BB, long wheelbase) and handles the same. It also has the same fork,
