Recent acquistion is an ARP Titanium frame

Currently in singlespeed guise and will be upgraded gradually. It weighs in at 21.5lb as it is.

It has no serial stamp but looks to be titanium just by the finish and weight (i've owned titanium in the past and it looks similar to my last one) and it's not steel for sure.

Date wise I'm not sure. No canti mounts leads me to post 1996 and from the geometry it looks suited for a 80mm fork so my guess is anywhere from 1996 to 1998/9.

about 0.25" Shorter toptube than my 18" Kona (lava) and fits nicely.

cheers, yeah it does have quite a few spacers on it which will be corrected once the other forks are fitted.

i think this bike rivals me for headset spacers. (courtesy of bikesarethesolution)
