Finally.. I found an 18"er 8)

Here is the basis for my Ti HT Build.. Should sit nicely among the Herd at Home..

Got a bunch of kit ready for it too.. Easton CT2 Bars & Post, SID Ti Race, Crossmax, Hutchinson USTs.. Keeping the M960 Gruppo tho, one of my favourites.. Unless someone's got NOS XTR 950 Kit sitting around :wink:

Should end up something like..

Ace, possible the pinnacle of hardtail MTB ownership!

IMO better with the Foxes on than the RS forks and a superior fork as well.

Cheers Dudes 8)

It arrived yesterday and had pride of place in the Bike.. err, I mean Spare Room :wink: The finish on these frames really has to be seen/felt to be believed.. Impeccable Welds, Quality of Finish.. 8)

Anyways, away for the Weekend on a Stag so will attack it on Monday.. I did have a stash of NOS M960 ready for my Ti IF Build, but the kit on this Rig can't have had much Trail Time [or so it seems], one thing that will take some getting used to will be the Dual Control Shifter/Brake SetUp..

It's so great. I'll never go back to any other kind of shifting. 8)
