So this is what you went for back in the day if a brightly coloured klein or fat was just a bit..... gauche..... for your taste. At the thick end of 2500 quid for the frame alone, these were just too far away for teenage me to even dream of - my dream bike was much lower down the scale of things!, but now i own this one, courtesy of harryburgundy!

Plans are simple, transplant the full M95x XTR group, and thomson/syncros finishing kit from my kilauea, and go riding.

That is beautiful, I would love a Ti frame but even today the prices the used frames still command are well out of my reach.

Keep an eye out for Ti frames from less scene-taxed brands. I've heard of a KHS going for under £250....

Is that a small frame or are the tubes really fat?

Looks good either way... 8)

tubes are fat. it sizes up similar to my 18in kona, slightly taller, but very close on the TT length.
