My new ride, built it up last night and rode her into work today for a "shake down". She flies. I love it. Same amazing ride as the XLM but fits me better and the front end is so sharp. Cant wait to get up on the hills this weekend. :D

I don't know why, but Ti frame are always so beautiful... then, if the bike have lefty (or fatty)fork, monoring and thomson components, is something of awesome!
is that a titanium chainring?

Awkward Kid, a little update for you. Shes seen plenty of South Downs action and here she is in her latest build.

The addition of a new middleburn Uno crank, R1 brakes, superstar nano pedals and a 2012 (nos) headshock fork.

Looks amazing! By far the best Ti bike i've had! Those new forks suit it well!
If you ever think of parting i'll take her back in a heart beat! Happy riding bud :wink:
