Hey All,

Been browsing this thread for a few months now and wanted to share my Ti project with you. It's a 2004 Indy Fab Ti Crown Jewel that I acquired on the bay in December. I was finally able to get it in a rideable state this weekend. Black saddle, housing and bar tape to come. Also a new Thomson Masterpiece is on it's way (non-setback). Also, some Hed Belgium C2's laced to CK Classics are being built up by Fair Wheel (as a training set, these are Reynolds 46's). Lastly, I'll cut the fork once I get the fit dialed in.

I'll post better pics once the build is complete (this was from my old iphone 4). And I think I'll do a thread if people are interested. Most importantly, it's at 7.93KG as pictured.

Cheers,
Sean

Had this for a little while now - firefly 58cm TT, Deda 130cm cockpit, ENVE post and fork, Dale SISL2 cranks in 175mm and record mechanical. This is with the SLR wheels and weight is 7,1kg. I ride it this time of year with HEB Belgium plus wheels 28 spoke laced to King R45 hubs.

I posted my Moots a couple of weeks back but here's a pick with my dreaded Zipp 303's. I ended up selling the Zipps cause they're nothing but trouble. The rear bearings never stayed adjusted even after them being serviced by Zipp. I've bought a new set of Dura Ace C50's. I'll post a pick with them on soon.

Okay that's hot, but I feel the "chunkiness" of the fork and stem combo overwhelm the frame a bit. What's the weight?

Stem will be MCFK, when it release. And it's the final build specs.

Performance wise, nothing.
Looks, think the grey really looks off compared to the Ti finish. I would go for black. That's all. Other than that. A great looker at i really like that fork!!
