Here is my new baby! I finally have a titanium bike and couldn't have found a better one...well, maybe a Moots for three times the $$ :wink:

This is by far the fastest and most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. It handles beautifully and has just enough squish in the rear to dampen out roots and rocks etc.

Not quite sure of the year? I think maybe '99 or 2000 from my research. Serial number is 36653. Any Litespeed people know how to read that? The previous owner added newer decals ('03), which I think look much classier than the small font yellow ones.

Full XTR, shifters, brakes, drivetrain

Spinergy spoked wheels

'04 Fox Talas Float RL fork, adjustable from 85-125mm(very cool)

Nice one, very classy bike.

I love the Ti shine and the idea of a softail, though I never went beyond the USE squishy post :D

Enjoy!!
