:D :D Finally...!

Got round finishing version 1.0 of my 1994 Dean Ti 8) with the M737 cassette I got from Ollytron :) .
And I was even able to take my titanium beauty out for a spin (in light rain).
As I'm waiting for nicer weather to take quality pics, I just took my mobile phone, so here's a (low-res) impression:

Me too. Fantastic build.

I think the Pace forks look great, good choice. The Ti seatpost will finish it off very well.

Love it, well done.

Classy frame!

The rusty crank bolts and those Specialized Cranks looks horrible. Sorry :oops:

Very nice Dean 8)

I always liked the DEAN graphics. They add some colour to the Ti.

Manitou: Didn't you try using a steerer from another brand?

Thanks for your comments :D .

This bike rides extremely well (at least the on road miles I've done so far): light 'n' smooth, not a sound (only of the freewheel when not pedaling but looking at the bike while passing large shopping windows :lol: ...)

Went out again shortly today:

Wrt the Manitou steerer: I haven't been after a longer steerer since I kinda like the Pace forks 8) .

kaos, my man, you're 100% right: I'm looking for a nice set of silver RF Turbines for this one, but I was just to eager to ride it and I had these cranks lying around... :wink:
