Nice, those cranks look long tho? The front end must be lower than a limbo dancers smile! Would be a bit sketchy on steep downhill banks? :shock:

I went for a happy compromise with the headset. The colours i wanted with a Ti base plate and cap bolt.
Decided against Maarwi spokes due to a few stories i've heard (and the cost)
I'm on the case with the cranks and fixings and i forgot to mention the cassette is XTR with 3 Ti cogs 8)
May still go for some Ti rings.

Weight is (runs upstairs to fetch scales)
Holy crap! 20.2 lbs!

I believe Marinovative Decelerators had Ti arms, no?

And Dean made a ti seatpost too, there was one on eBay USA recently.

What about a Ti King headset?
