Cant find a thread for these stunning frames so here goes,

I bought my lancaster off the singletrack forum for £220 and I love it, I was looking for a high end retro kona frame with a budget of about £200 and then this popped up.

Image

This is the first Ti frame ive ridden/owned so it was quite a treat once it was built, I find it very compliant on the trail, it feels like a steel frame but with more of a "spring" to it, I hav'nt weighed it yet but its pretty light.

the first thing I did was remove the horrible tacky transfers (with nail varnish remover 5mins) and give it a good scotchbright, winner you can keep your kileau's and explosives this bike rocks.

Image

to finish im going for fox forks from about 2005 and maybe some hope brakes,
cheers,
Lee.

I want one of these, but I would probably have left the Airborne sticker on the downtube though.

Like this a lot :)
