    Looks like ti, but actually True Temper OX Platinum with carbon inserts (Steel Exogrid).

    My current all around bike. Love steel as well as ti.

    My 50th Birthday present to myself



    Black Sheep Stellar - Most comfortable bike I've ridden. James has really figured out the whole "vertically compliant, but laterally stiff" thing. Plus, it just looks HOT!

    Since this image was taken nearly 3wks ago I've swapped out the brakes for a set of 2011 XTR's (Trail version) and the EC70 seatpost is gone (waaaaay too flexy) for the Lynskey Ti seatpost which is much, much better.

    How does it ride? I don't have much to compare it to since I come from a 26'er carbon full suspension geared background. All I can say is I'm absolutely loving the Ti 29'er hardtail SS thing. I chose this bike specifically for 24hr Solos, I wanted a change from my normal 24hr Solo rigs and this is a radical departure but so far so good. But the proof is in the pudding as they say and the first 24hr taste test is next weekend in Spokane. I've already got several multi-hour rides in this configuration and between the 29'er volume and Ti absorption it seems to have been a good choice, of course I'll know more by next Sunday afternoon. ;-)

    Even though the Ti frame is flexy, it's flexy in a good way once you get used to it. After a couple of weeks of pushing the bike to it's limits and learning what it's capable of it was a simple matter of adjusting my style a bit to cooperate more closely with the bike. My biggest concerns with a Ti 29'er seem to have been alleviated. It produces good results across a wide range of demands; from good trail absorption to aggressive line choice handling.

    I shot this video a few days ago on a trail I'm not familiar with (only ridden it once a couple of nights prior during a night ride), unfortunately the video doesn't effectively demonstrate how many tight moves and sharp angles you've got to pull at speed in order to one-time this little route but I can assure you the bike is very capable of handling aggressive trail riding and is probably more competent than the rider. 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:
