    Seems like they should, and yes, I bought the same Ti bolt set for my Lynskey.
    They can come with anything you want if you pay for the parts.

    The only downside I've found is that people like to steal them. Ti can also be flexy depending on how it's built, but my XL Pro29 is far from flexy. FWIW I weigh 190ish and race XC.

    A well built Ti hardtail frame will weigh slightly more than a similar carbon frame (.5 to 1 lb more depending), but 'should' last much longer. One of the beauties of Ti is you don't have to paint them and can refinish fairly easily. Also, IMO Ti frames are generally silky feeling vs springy steel or dead carbon.

I've had the bike on harder trails, bigger climbs and descents and gnarlier tech and it's been very capable, this video is just good proof that Ti-flex isn't a limiter. Maybe steel/aluminum would be great on this trail as well, I'll gladly do long-term reviews on donated frames. ;-)

    Best to watch this in 1080HD:

    Thanks for posting. Enjoyed that vid!

    I will keep the Seven pictures going. A few changes to the bike, but I still love it.





    And my cross bike. Flipped the stem and ditched some of the red.

    a sc32 fork would be a good fit.

    Is it a standard frame ? What size ?
    Could you fit 2.4 tyre in the back ?
    Thanks.

    It's a standard frame 18 inch size, they don't seem to keep them in stock, i waited 6 weeks for mine. Clearance on the chainstays is quite tight with my Nobby Nic 2.25 so i don't think it would take a 2.4. Very happy with it, good frame for the money.

    Cheers
