Today I began needling my work mate whose thinking of a new bike. Looks like he's considering a made to order chinese built titanium do it all single speed/fix/hubgear bike. He has a custom built titanium Audax already so ordering direct from the factory in China does not phase him. I'll make him do it, the seeds are sown its all in the detail now :twisted:

Date stamped 91 just like my forks - has a HL marking like my 92 zoom stem, I'm guessing that is either the taiwanese manufacturer's brand stamp or an engineering mark, anyone know? (it also has Kalin on it which is a company)

You don't need to clean titanium the dirt falls off eventually.

Roads are filthy up here at the moment, winter grit has turned to dust and yesterdays rain sprayed the fine grinding compound all over my bike - chain went rusty overnight again. When does spring arrive?

Mikee, not even I am that stupid - :) - it is on both the stem and expander bolt and on the plastic bolt cover on my zoom - on both stems it also says min height at the appropriate point. I think my explanation a few posts up is accurate....
