Wow, that's awesome! Ti frames are really like jewelry for men I guess...

How are these things welded btw, because I can't help but noticing that all those Merlin, Litespeed, Xizang frames etc etc always have beautiful welding. Especially Merlins always have such sweet and smooth weldings.

Well, yeah we do have here good soil - no mud or sand but lots of gnarly roots and rocks. No big mountains though, only smallish hills. But basically a trail bike with 120-140mm of travel in both ends is a correct weapon-of-choice in here.

My retro bikes don't see much action except for my Klein Adept hybrid. the situation should change when I complete the Xizang.
Although I have most of the components for the Litespeed, it might take some time until it is ready (storage problems).
