I would not call that bike finished. Cloooose, but not finished.

(both sets of tires look good on it)

elaborate a bit more please fella.

I know the cables need trimming and finishing, setting the gears and brakes, and I've messaged Mr. Gil for some decals, but as far as assembling the bike goes, I'm pretty much done.

It'll never be completely finished, in my eyes, until I source some McMahon Ti bars... :oops: :roll: :D

Cheers guys..

Sylus - yeah a bit of a weight off, just getting it built up. I love how it looks, and how light it is with all the Titanium, but I'm not 100% happy with the overall look.... there's something just missing, IMO.


Classen - thanks, but blue-wall tyres... hmmm... Image


Hmmmm Can't imagine anything other than Black or Blue Ti Bottle cage bolts and maybe those turquise Ti Stix as mentioned could possibly improve on this.

Simply stunning,esp with so many of the MRC bits you've managed to find too.

You gotta be keeping it now right?
