Very very very nice...but you know what, I actually prefer the black and white photos....think the bike would look better without the red. Very stealth.
Lovely build.

Very nice.

What about some Paul Thumbie mounts and Dura Ace end shifters...?

Would take a few more grams off, and compliment the Love Levers...

Wow :shock: That is a dope ride !! Those proshift chainrings are really sexy also. If I had to choose between the two builds.......Number 2 would do it sleek, clean lines very classy! A defo BoTM build.Well it would get my vote. 8) Very nice indeed.

Very nice

Definately would prefer it more stealthy without any anodizing on there....personal preference though

Very nice ride - Titanium done up in spades!

Although it would look good black & ti...the color gives it some pop IMO.
