Finally I´m close to ready with this -
All screws except the suspension bolts are titanium and have been rainbow-coloured anodized/heat treated :)
The King Ti cage underwent the same procedure as did the Spin titanium headset (they call this version a "Hendrix" headset)...
Basically the kit is Shimano XTR 970 (shifters, cassette, derailleurs), the rear derailleur has the Yumeya tuning carbon cage, Cannondale/FSA carbon crankset, King Ti cage, White brothers Ti rizerbar, Formula Oro bianco polished brakeset, Pace RC 36 carbon forks, Ritchey superlogic carbon seatpost, Fizik Gobi seat, FRM hubs/ZTR Olympic wheelset with DT comp butted spokes, Vredestein Black Panther tires.

More photos in my IBC album :)

thanks, guys...
The only thing I´m not satisfied is the pictures - it´s just not possible to do this beautiful paint justice with a normal camera and without photographic talent/skills...
