Nice one, very classy bike, very well done. I like the details too, upsweep on the bars, barends, pizza cutter rear mech routing.

Have to agree with poster above that P2's add a certain sharpness to the looks of a rigid Ti, these forks remind me of Orange bikes. And as for suspension, my Ti hardtail is rigid with modern bits including 2.4" tires at low pressures and it does just fine.

Is this a rider?

Lovely.

A beautiful bike, but looks soooo good that size.

I reckon that 17" bikes have the best proportions anyway. Why are my legs so long! :cry:

Very nice ride, but it needs another fork (Mag 21 or Ritchey Logic non suspension for example) and another stem (is the current one a Control Tech?).
