Crickey I didn't think they made sloped top tube ones back then.

Funny how all of us XLM owners seem to lean towards carbon forks isn't it?

Why compromise on weight i suppose. They are properly light ti frames.

Very nice mate, like it.

Maybe we should have an XLM owner's club section - :wink:



Thanks everyone, for the nice feedback = )

Club XLM = ) nice, then we can get to all our different set ups!
My fork is a 440mm...I guess the extra 2 centimeters are responsible for the sloping downtube..seriously looking to find me an older version 420mm. Checked with the fellas at Pace and they told me I could still use this fork, just that the geometry would be slightly affected.

Well, yeah, I guess a 1998 piece isn't really considered retro, but I figured I need V-brakes and a 1st generation crossmax to match the frame era.

I think the zeroflex goes quite well with the bike = )

Just wonderin, does anyone know details & history of Ttitec and their fat-head stem?

Cypher,

mine's an '02 and I consider it to be retro - don't worry about a ''98! :D

Retro is a state of mind. :wink:

I run the 440mm Pace RC31 Ti's too and although people will have you believe they are for 100mm corrected frames, they actually measure up exactly the same as a locked out SID, so are fine for 80mm bikes. I always found the 420's a bit low so went for the 440's and they feel much better (IMO).

link to mine with these forks:

Great looking brakes there as well - seeing others makes mine look very drab

Changes to the spec pictured are a silver Thomson post (replacing the Ti one) and a silver flat Thomson stem (replacing the Hope one witha little rise)
