Liking that frame mate and it was cheap
looks to me if its a KHS team titanium frame if the seatpost tube is oval down near the bottom bracket

Very nice and super coool are you going XTR M900 :D 8)

no ovalisation near the bottom bracket,
well, its staying in frame form for the moment, but listing stuff in my head, (the list gets longer and alot more expensive)

wanna stick to canti's. so might go XTR M951 gear setup, but the rest, pass.

although i do have a raceface NEXT LP chainset and bottom bracket sitting around.

I don't think it's a KHS, as there are many details different from this one (which sold on pinkbike for £90 incidentally - the owner said 'of course it's not as good as an Airborne, but etc')
:?

I'm sorry but thats not 'Titanium'.

Unfortunately its 'Cheapotainium' a far more common material that is found on BSO's all over the world.

Waht I'll do is, I'll take it off your hands for, lets say, a nice Marin Pallisades? Hmmm? No?























I'll get me coat...

What LGF meant was it is actually Shiteanium, but his lack of wit or long hours deprived him of his usual vocabulary,wit and charisma :lol: :lol:

anyway what a great frame for a silly cheap price :shock: I'll give you £90 :wink: eight pound profit after all :wink:
