For me Ben Serotta is great weldmaster and MTB very rare.
Use same best tubes Ancotech design for Ibis by Gary Helfrich and hupgrade on C4TI, better MTB tubeset ever made.

Great bikes. I'm back to lacking a Ti bike in my collection. The TiMax is tops in my list.

What are your impressions of the onza tires? I am about to order a set to try on my retro bikes. I like the skinwalls/volume and I'd like something with better performance the smoke and dart classics.

That's what I'd expect. That's a rare combo on Ti frames. Too many from that era suffer from excessive flex in the BB and compromised handling. When the Serotta welders took over building Fats, when Fat City Cycles moved to Glenn Falls, the welds were still fantastic. Only ever owned a T Max but that was one hell of a bike to ride.

why your T Max was a hell ride ?

I do not complain of stiffness BB, is true for early 1990 .
Serotta and Fat Chance are butted frames, internal and tapered for Serotta, external for Fat Chance .
The result is completely different .

Onza are very good tire, modern performance and retro looking.
