^The graphics come from the graphic identity of our cycling club. 1928 is the year it was started, and the mermaid comes from the coat of arms of our region. Gold and blue are also the colors from the coat of arms and also the colors of our club. On the left fork leg there is the logo of the club but it can't be seen from the pics. The symbol on the bottom "hannunvaakuna" is a old Finnish symbol of luck / protection against bad luck, a symbol that people used to carve on their belongings, the oldest examples are from skis that are 1000 years old... We have a batch of Festkas with our club graphics, this is one of those.

Yes! That is a cool “story behind the bike”. Can’t believe it took someone to ask about it for you to tell it. Very nice setup.

The bike was featured on CycleEXIF in its previous color scheme, there's a more detailed story over there.

And an obligatory shot with Boras:

Thanks for sharing. Such a nice kit design as well. Class. What does the writing on it translate to in English? The “Lahden Pyorailijat” part.

And picked up this beauty to ride gravel. It’s a Norco CCX SL Ti. I didn’t even know Norco made titanium bikes.

Bought this after seeing a listing in our Junkmail (similar to Craigslist). Price? Only $340. Guy hasn't ridden it in years. Came with Extralite seatpost, stem, headset and wheels. Some ridiculous logos which ruined the whole look of the frame (IMHO). Surprisingly, the old 9spd Shimano Ultegra still shifts flawlessly, I didn't need to make any adjustments. I gave it a good wash, stripped off the logos, fitted some 25mm's and flipped the stem. Also swopped out the saddle. Here is some before and after pics ImageImageImageImage

Does anyone know if there's any mass produced ti frame for touring/endurance that has a curvy top tube? Been looking for one for my wife.
Not exactly what you're looking for, but I just ordered one of these and I'm so ready to get it built and post some pictures.

It's a custom titanium frame capable of running 700x35mm or 650b x 48 tires. Shown with Compass Bon Jon Pass, tubeless.

Red levers and cranks, Force 1 derailleur, Garbaruk chainring, TRP 957 brakes, Tune saddle, Kalloy 120mm stem, no name carbon post and bars, and self-built wheels, A23s on Bitex.

About 7.2 kg with (Ritchey) pedals
