Hell man thats nice.

I personally love the yellow decals, but those red ones look stunning too, and sometimes its good to be different.

Those drop outs are a thing of beauty.

Nice build! Titanium in combination with red parts is a good choice. My brother owns an Axis TT with purple and silver parts. Some pictures of his bike taken the last weekend:
