Beautiful classic lines, I love it. Your backgrounds are very complimentary too!

Well done! :beerchug:

Not sure what complaint anyone could conceivably levy against that bike. It's perfect.

Super nice! How long was your wait on the Mosaic?

With the Lightweights on that is definitely the best looking bike I've seen in a while, just beautiful. Makes it a perfect mix of classic lines along with some modern looks.
The saddle kinda sticks out a bit with it's design but the more I look at it the more I think it adds to the overall picture.

Like said above - well done!

Thank you, guys! :thanx: I am very glad myself with the build and how it came out. Some of the parts such as the wheelset and brakes were taken over from my old bike.

The wait was reasonable. I think 3 months if I remember correctly. Some other builders of titanium frames have waiting lists over a year. I am impatient and such a long wait is nothing for me... :noidea: But don't get me wrong, I am not saying that the Mosaic wasn't my favourite. In fact, initially when considering a new build I wanted to build an even lighter bike (my old weighed 5.76kg) with an AX-Lightness Vial Evo frameset. But then the financial mysery of AX occured and that was a bit of a turn in events. At that time, 2 friends of mine (among them PARTIZAN) and I discussed titanium frames and introduced me to Mosaic. I saw the RT-1 with its super-slim seat-stays and fell in love immediately... Btw, it was pretty much the same time when PARTIZAN ordered his Kualis and I ordered my Mosaic.

Yeah, I know... :doh: Just always am too lazy and forget to remove them... :roll:
