There's a WTB Phoenix Ti on eBay US right now. I've mailed the seller to see if he'll sell frame only, but otherwise I bagsied it first :D

Simon,

why not get Steve Potts to make you one, he seems to be back in the Ti frame business and making forks again to match!

Because his prices start at three thousand dollars for a frame and go from there - I can't rationalise that!

Cheers - someone on MTBR mentioned that, and apparently he's after top dollar. Oh well, perhaps I got my hopes up a little ahead of time.

Go on, you know you want to.... at least you can get some matching forks when (?) you win this one. What's the reserve set at?

There are a couple of problems:

1. He's in the US, charging $150 for shipping in the US, plus whatever I need to pay to get it over the pond once I've got it from him to the forwarding address.

2. He really only wants to sell as a complete bike. I'd rather put my own kit on and not have to pay shipping over here for his chosen componenty.

3. I've hear rumour the reserve is $3k.

On a positive note:

I've made him an offer for the frame only that he's probably going to accept if the complete bike doesn't sell.
