Looks really really good.

And I like the clearance.

Where did you find the snow?

Friday Ti Day! @teleguy57 I love that frame.

Have you given any thought to a setback post, just to center the rails a bit?

Thanks for all the compliments! To your comments:

Wisconsin USA. These were taken two weeks ago, but we still have some snow on the ground and there are still snowbanks several feet high along the roadsides and bigger mounds where it has been plowed/piled. Finally got above freezing this week; my last four rides before yesterday was a high of 31F with lots of wind.

Just put the calipers on them: indeed 25.4mm! Here are a few more photos:

I'm still tweaking my saddle position; this seatpost actually has about 15mm setback when you look at the lower cradle. I may go to a 20mm setback post, but that will be a bit further out.

Unfortunately, no Campagnolo in a 30.9 -- this one with black hardware. Steve Hampsten would finish it to match the frame :beerchug:

Not Acetone, Dichloromethane & Phenol. Much more effective.

Starchem Synstrip to get rid of the paint (messy and dangerous, but worth it)

Then 3M Scotchbrite pads to get it finished (for now).

I started with DarkGreen (medium), then skipped brown and straight onto Grey (Very fine).

It's quite a lot smoother and close to a polished finish than the pic I took reflects actually.

Took a few closeups to highlight.

I have some White pads (non-abrasive) which would get it 100% mirror polished, which i might have a stab at the next time its stripped down.

Be-ware of going for this look...

I have become OCD about fingerprints on the frame.

worth the extra effort polishing in my opinion... considering yours looks like its closer to mirror polished than factory brushed finish. well done...

Lovely bike.
What size is it , small ?

I am riding a 52cm super-six, should I get a medium T1 frame ?


I was on 50cm super six Evo hi Mod. went to Small T1, still too small... after few months, changed to Medium T1 last week. BTW, my other bikes around 53-54 e TT.
