I've mailed pete @ cycleshark first.. just to 100% check :)

took me a looooong time to find out why they painted the titanium lugs grey (I could understand painting them all black, the understated stealth look :D ) ... its because the rear canti studs are actually steel (the exact same as the earlier steel lugged epic carbon predecessor), all the other lugs are merlin titanium.

1 of the rare frames back in the day that could actually fit a 2.5in specialized extreme in due to the back end, specifically the early fisher style S bend chainstays.
I like a lot of things about the ultimate. The tapered ti lugs (in the same vein as the merlin XLM) being another facet :)
