This is my titanium Bontrager. Since joining the forum I have become aware I should get some insurance and so will need to know model and vintage. It has a one inch headset. Are these still made? If not what would the nearest modern replacement be?

Its a Bontrager Ti Lite, frame from around 1995-1997 built for Bonty by Sandvik. It was one of the most expensive frames at the time (around $2600). To find a replacement you'd have to look for a boutique Ti maker like Dean, Merlin or Litespeed to get similar quality, although getting an insurance company to understand the value of a 10 year old bike is always a toughie!

Beautiful bike though, always on the wish list..
