got this lovely frame off carl and just built up. unridden as yet till the morn.
better pics now added. build list is:

frame litespeed tanasi full 6/4 titanium 18".
forks WR compositi, 100mm carbon steerer and legs.
cranks XTR m960 given the jones treatment. ti` chainring on way.
pedals. crank bros, eggbeater 4 ti`s
bars stem and seatpost, controltech ti` mania.
wheels, king hubs, sapim x-ray spokes and mavic 717 rims.
formula r1 brakes.
xo mech and shifter 1x9 set up.
king ceramic bottom bracket.
fizik tundra kium saddle.
full titanium chain.
aluminium one piece cassette.
bibs and bobs and bolts etc in titanium.

weighing in at a very nimble tad over 9 kg.

the build quality on the frame is stunning. the seatpost part is round at the top and ten sided at the bottom. top tube is round at the back and triangular at the front. the seat stays are a work of art. for a 2003 frame it is has come up with a bit of work like a new frame and there is only one mark on the chainstay from a chainring. thats the beauty of a titanium frame! what you reckon chaps?
