Nah, the MTi2000 was the one with the carbon tubes. I think that i read it retailed for $6,700. i think mine was more like $4,000. carbon fails though...not ti!

Made in Nottingham at Raleigh Special Products.

IMI Titanium frame, plasma-arc welded by Mickey Rooney (and that IS his real name) with glass bead-blasted finish.

Then shipped to Raleigh USA.

John Tomac was not involved in the design or manufacture, However he did race one prior to the product launch and won the Sea Otter Classic on it and also a race in Australia.
