Some new shoes for Lynskey Helix. As in Wheels with plastic rims. ;) Time to cut the steerer being I decided it is a keeper...

Light Bicycle 35mm tubeless [set up with latex for now] 19.5x700 on DT 240S and CX-rays. Finally some super nice and pretty light wheels...

hello guys, i'm doing some reserch on TITANIUM, i saw that 10 years ago titanium frame was much more popular, now everyone focus on carbon fiber, major bike brand included, is about cost? about fashion?
i'm thinking to buy a titanium frame.
thank you very much.

Hi all, I am starting a new build and first time Ti bike.

I’m trying to decide now on the finishing kit - I will definitely use carbon handlebars but can’t decide if I also do a carbon stem and seatpost (Enve probably) or I do a titanium stem and seatpost (Moots probably).

Anyone with experience trying both carbon and titanium stem and seatpost and care to comment in terms of comfort and stiffness?

Thanks!

Very nice. How are you finding the Moots seatpost and stem vs carbon? Do you like them? Super clean build. Looks great Image

This is Becca, a custom one off designed by me for me, and built by Waltly. Dura-Ace, Chris King, all the goodies.
Nice Ti. Especially the combination with the blue CK parts. I have the same on my Crisp Ti bike, but what seat post collar are you using? Does it match the CK blue well? I contacted CK about making them, but they said they didn't have the capacity and Darren Crisp told me his anodizer couldn't match the CK blue.

The Helix Disc got some more wheels. The disc lightwheels/DT-240s went on my Strong All Road, short life on the Helix. ;)

The most significant change I have made on a bike in a long long time in terms of return of function. I mean an improvement that is so obvious in ride quality my previous best riding bike, Look 585 is #2 now.

Picked up a CX Tubular XTR wheelset and some 30mm Challenge tubless tubular Stradas. This just blips over about everything now. Feel is the most supple feel I can remember feeling. Noticeably better than 38mm Soma Supple Vittese with latex tubes on my Strong All Road, and the PSI in the 30mm tubulars is 15-20 PSI higher too.

Been getting rolled a lot of late...

After a year and a half on this exquisite frame I finally upgraded to some carbon wheels.

58" Mosaic RT-2 Titanium frame with 190mm headtube (I'm tall)
Enve SES 3.4 Wheels
Enve fork, stem, seatpost
Zipp handlebars (should probs go Enve too!)
SRAM Red ETAP (50/34, 11-32)

All told 17lbs even, 7.7 KGs

I have just built myself a Ti bike and as there does not appear to be another Curve Belgie Spirit on the site I thought it would be worth a picture. Apart from the groupset everything else has been from Ebay/secondhand or taken off my old bike. The frame quality is superb with lovely neat welds and a weight of around 1400g. I don't have an accurate weight of the bike but using the bathroom scales it comers in around 8.3kg including the Assoma Duo pedals but minus the seat roll. Image

Nice Ti. Where did you put the di2 battery with that seatpost?

The battery is held in the seat tube with foam and then a wire fixed to it so i can remove it if needed
