That's a real stunner! What's the ride like on Ti? I've heard they're even nicer than steel for 'feel'.

PS. Glad I'm not the only one drooling over the welding :lol: .

Hey Wadsy, is this "instead" of the Hei Hei then? How's it ride in comparison? Looks well balanced with the build and the fork's look spot on with it!

Probably ;) although I'd like an 18" Hei Hei. So will probably have to sell off my SC Superlight though :(

Rides just as well as the Hei Hei really, but I didn't do a like for like build, the Hei Hei had slightly longer Pace forks on, so handled a bit differently. Also a bit higher at the front with the longer head-tube too. Interesting that the DBR is an 18 (medium) but has the same sizing (seat-tube and top-tube) as the 19 Hei Hei - except the head-tube ;)
