This is such a sad post.

My god, I cant believe we are comparing "drop outs" now.

If only your wives, girlfriends saw you all.

Sad.

:D

I'm using my time over here in the US to purchase me a new Seven Ti frame (don't ya love the exchange rate!). The only thing that held me back was the dropout, but as I wanted to use discs there wasn't much choice as they don't do the full length stays any more, and with Merlin, IF, et al all doing the same I'm going to grin and bear it (to be honest they look so much nicer in the flesh).

Any hoo, my Sevens going to be very custom with all manner of personal stuff so the drop outs are small potatoes, and as none of the other Ti guys offer the same level of custom as Seven (and because I've always wanted one) there was no other choice in my eyes!


All that said, nothing comes close to my Fat Ti's dropouts (except another persons Fat Ti dropouts!)
