If only it was a size bigger - heaven and hell would have to have been moved!

It's not Titanium - it's a steel alloy variant with (I think) Niobium and Titanium in the mix, but only in small (couple of percent) proportions.

Simon is right, it was the cheaper Ritchey, still nice though. The frames are small. My 18" P20 is tiny, I could have probably got away with a 19" and i'm only 5'8" :)

3lb for a steely? hmmm

If true, would be scared. 6 months racing on an old Rocky Altitude and the downtube was dented somewhat more than was comfortable :shock:

Prestige Ultimate Ultralight not very rock resistant. Never had any other bike quite as bad. Had a dobber dent up near the headtube of all places.
