Sounds like a nice build. Your El-Mar was/is tasty. :wink:

What are you waiting on? :wink:

I'll offer up the El Mar frame on here, still in as new condition, as from day one I felt the XL frame was just too big. It was like riding a farmyard gate. That despite sizing assistance from Salsa!

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Ti with the alternator drop outs 8) the drop outs are brilliant for SS adjustment - the reviews for the 2014 Ti frame are all really good - have to see some pics when you get it.

I hope you didn't work off the Salsa size charts - They are hopeless.

It has arrived 8) it had to be 'smuggled' into the man pit under the cover of darkness, to evade detection :wink:
