Indeed!


I hate that I had a Ti version of this frame, and never got to enjoy it. Do you have a little background on this one.

...and then on fleabay, where I snagged it in a BIN.

I'll ride the P2 for a while and then maybe I'll get a Potts fork for it. Rode it to the office this morning and it's a very nice bike. 8)
