So I am venturing into the titanium scene as I have plenty of carbon in the stable. I chose the guys at www.enigmabikes.com with Michael Musil being the US point of contact helping me thru the process.
I'm really excited about some of the custom details that Michael helped me with!
She's going to be outfitted with Campy SR11 and Deda finishing kits.
Frame weight without hardware 1400g
Let me know what you think.

like the laser etching. though I question the naming on the frame unless you are going to never sell it.

Great minds....I'm building a used ti frame with similar tubing profiles. Built by a former Litespeed welder, Richie Moore, in 2012. Hoping that the ride doesn't end up too stiff. Its around 1600g but that includes an isp.

The finish is brushed and the darker color is actually bead blasted. I don't intend to sell this one as it was a great custom project. Instead of having 'echo' on the top tube, I had them put my boys' middle name on either side. Then my last name is in the panel on the inner triangle of the seattube. This was inspiration from my Colnago EPS.
This one will end up as wall-art should i ever decide to retire it!

you may want to clear the shifter paddles as I've had a carbon splinter come off the carbon sticker and hurt really badly.

She is 95% completed! I am still looking to determine the front end stack before trimming the steerer tube. I'm really pleased at how this build turned out! Again, the US contact for #enigmabikes was a pleasure to work with! The tig-welds are amazing and on par with the best in the business. What I was surprised about was the overzied downtube shaping- double ovalized with the headtube vertically and the BB horizontally.

When I reflect back, I'm glad I went this route vs opposite for the frame finish- mostly brushed with bead blasted panels and script. These guys also brought by vision to fruition with the custom work.

The wheels are custom built Enve SES 4.4 tubulars and are my daily hoops Dura Ace 9000 24h front hub and powertap G3 rear hub.

Without further adieu- the vitals:
-frame: enigma echo size 53
-fork C-Six full carbon straight 1 1/18"
-headset: white industries
-shifters: Campagnolo Super Record 11
-front derailleur and clamp: Campagnolo Super Record 11
-rear derailleur: Campagnolo Super Record 11
-brakes: Campagnolo Super Record
-crank: Campagnolo Record 11 172,5 5 arm
-BB: Campagnolo Record
-handlebars: Deda RHM02
-stem: Deda zero100
-seatpost: Deda Supperleggra
-seatpost collar: enigma
-wheels: custom Enve SES 4.4 tubulars
-bottle cage: Arundel Dave-O
-pedals: Speedplay Zero

Final weight as pictured complete: 7,45kg/16,4lbs.

Very nice, those cables about perfect. Gives me a tough target. I'm doing mine with a used SR mechanical group as well, first time back on Campy since di2 was introduced, I'm really curious.

Thanks. I've built too many bikes and have hopefully perfected cable lengths. However, I feel that the rear derailleur housing is a little long. I may cut it back.

Stay tuned for ride report on the feel of this bike. All my bikes are running campy and I am using the same wheels between them all, so ride feel should be mostly characteristic of the frame itself. Although handlebars and stem are all different.

Very nice indeed :thumbup:

I helped a friend to order an Enigma Excel which hopefully should be with him come April, but he's gone for something completely different to yours - hydro disc brakes & Di2, but I think he's going for Enve rims too ...........

Oh, why the mis-match tubs? :mrgreen:

Enjoy!

I imagine the guys at enigma are top notch if their US point man is any representation! Great to deal with! The excel should be outstanding.

mis-match tubbies as they are my daily hoops and rubbers get replaced as needed.

I'm seeing that same shape downtube on a bunch of bikes - yours and mine are almost identical. It must be a stock item from some supplier.
