This has to be the cleanest titanium bike I have ever seen. The subtle blue accents work so well with the flat black components throughout. I commonly see people over kill accent colors by adding matching skewers, spacers, top caps, chain ring bolts, seat collar, ect which takes focus off the frame. I think you set this build up perfectly!

I have a 2009 Litespeed Ghisallo I am starting to build up. I am thinking of doing something similar but with hot pink accents. Thanks for the inspiration.

How do you like the Streeters QR? Mine 'scream' when i tighten and it cause me a little fear

Now all perfect with blue on RD. Impressive weight for the robust look and with PM. :thumbup:

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

The Extralite skewers are nice, they are supremely Weight Weenie in almost every regard. I got the screech of death too when clamping tightly. I added Paul's tenacious oil to the joint to quiet them down, which worked well. I've been tightening them not so tight, and then rotating them to make them tight. With the Ti dropouts though, I'm battling them creaking/clicking. It's a problem that I have with the KCNC's too, but I'm not as concerned with over-torquing those.

Also, this is the final update for this build. I have a C59 coming which I'm going to transfer the parts to. Assuming that I like it more than the Litespeed (I did get rid of my Parlee to get another Litespeed, so who knows), I'll only be keeping one. I do not think I can get away with keeping this frame (I'll try though! N=1 in my household :( ). If you're interested in the next few weeks, PM me.

Bummer about this beauty being stripped down, one of the best looking Ti bikes I've seen

I've been getting good at this whole rebuild a bike thing, took me only 1.5 hours this go around. Since the Colnago is too big, this is back in rotation with some different bits: Zipp SL stem, Tune Bobo Headset and Red 22 crankset (while I send the SRM in for service).

Had a little splatter on today's ride:
