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.



Thought you would have learnt your lesson with P2's :lol: :lol:

Seriously though another fine bike to join your slightly leftfeild collection 8) 8)

P2s are like trading cards.... Need a fork, buy a P2, friend needs a fork, trade him your P2 for a part you want or need. Any cycling enthusiast would do well to keep an assortment of P2s on hand. What can I say, there's a reason they are black. Black goes with everything! :D

That P2 on the Cannondale was really pushing it though... :oops: :lol:

After I use the bike for a while, if all goes well, then I'll pony up for a proper fork.

Maybe not! If a P2 is good enough for the owner of Mr Potts' local shop, then maybe its good enough for little old me! :D It was a great ride today. 12 miles and counting! 8)

I've been reading that blog since before I bought my Phoenix Ti (a couple years); definitely a good read :)

Should probably learn how to subscribe to it.

Of course, yellow is a fall color...so when I made plans to go to North Carolina for a little fall swish through the leaves, I had to take the WTB. 8) It is a very fun bike.

More pics are on my site... :D

Looks good

I did a ride on mine on Sunday and noticed I had some finetuning to do. I were a bit disappointed of the performance of modern cassette and chain in friction mode. Yes, I did set friction mode. I do run friction on my classic roadbikes too and with the huge teeth and rugged chain on them you know your chain sits well. I did enjoy the ride very much however.
