I wanted something to ride around on whilst I change a few things on my Dekerf, having the forks painted etc

So what we have here is a Rapid titanium frame made by this handsome lot
http://englishrussia.com/2012/05/16/pro ... le-frames/

This frame is a Rapid-MCM 5/2 Aerospace titanium frame, although I have never heard of 52 before.

Build as follows

Forks: SID XC
Wheels: 1st gen. Mavic Crossmax
V Brakes: Avid Ultimate Black Ops
Levers: M952 XTR STi
RM: M952 XTR
Cassette: Ultegra
Cranks: Raceface Turbine LP
BB: Phil Wood
SEatpost: Syncros
Saddle: SDG Bel Air Ti
Stem: Thomson
Bars: Burgtec Ride Wide
Headset: to be replaced

and it is a nice ride
:D

I do not know really...I think they quote $750 in the text. I suspect they make frames for a few people who re-badge and add an extra 100%
