It rides pretty quick. Ti spokes make the wheels "zip" along if that makes any sense. The forks judder nder braking (the other ti ones did) so I wouldnt want to fly off anything big on this at all!!!

It also has a titanium IRD steerer in there too - the whole front end (well the whole bike actually) feels like a roadbike in terms of weight. If I put some super light tyres and a super lightweight BB this would shave off a load more weight I imagine. Come to think of it this has a load of ti on it.

Double butted ti frame
Ti/carbon wheels & spokes
Syncros ti bar
Titanium fork and steerer
Ti/carbon flite
Ti bolts etc

Man that looks good! I have always been a great fan of the IRD stuff. Can't wait to show you guys my almost finished TiFat. Very different to your, but very nice as well.

It would be my BOTM for sure... if the rear tyre wasn't on backwards.

You blew it buddy!
