Yup its still SS. Using a BB mounted Blackspire Stinger tensioner- cleaner lines and all that. Also out of the way of those Thrunton rocks. Still need to sort a stem. I've dug out a load of old crap ones to try different reaches and rises before I order a Moots stem. Looking forward to riding it. Going to try and get out at the weekend- weather pending!

Ah, feeling the Moots love eh Kai?? Fitted the barmy Jones H Bars last night. Big problem is that mounting the Hope levers has robbed one of the most useful hand positions :evil: Looks cool though. Just waiting on a tensioner and a tyre and its all systems go.


still wish I'd gone for this one

Jones bars are mad, still going SS on it? What kind of tensioner are you fitting?

I saw it and thought about it but my bizarre bike filter doodah came into play. I reckon if I go Ti it'll be with a manufacturer known for Ti not just a Ti offering if that makes sense. Though it is possible this is a sandvik frame(can't remember the details but they had a bike fab division IIRC)

kind of get what your saying but it would be a cheap way of seeing if Ti "was all that", you'd always get your money back- mind you your like me in that you really do need another project :lol:
