In april I decided that I have bought my last bike… until this day, Brad phoned to me : Hey, there's a small mojo ti for sale on retrobike !
- Mmmmmmh ? Yes but no. I have decided to stop buying bike !
- OK… but there's an handjob on the frame…
- Gnnnnnnh !

So, 5 month later :

I decided to built another single gear bike. My yeti is going to another project.
I think the fork was weld by litespeed but it's in full titanium (there's aluminium parts on the litespeed). Perhaps it was made for Marin in 92-93. But the segmented design was near some first ibis fork…

Holy wowza! That a nice ride. My vote is for a matching Ibis Ti bar. Waaay envious of the crank. What fork you have?

Mega thumbs up,

Kurt

Oh my goodness, that's the Morati fork there, too. My friend, you don't have a bicycle. What you have is a spacecraft from another universe and time!!!

That is super awesome 8) 8)

The only thing I would suggest is getting a W.I eno eccentric on there to clean up the looks at the back.

That is a beautiful beautiful machine
