    more pics please!

    It looks great Tomaso,
    good job designing the headbadge...
    that headbadge turned out nice, well worth the wait.
    did you get the stem too??

    Hey A, thanks.
    The badge did turn out well, and the frame turned out even better! Jim did an incredible work.
    I didn't design the badge, that's Jim's logo design; I just drew it/helped get it made, and it was a long process...but, yes, worth the work.

    No, I did not get a stem, but in the future I would like to. Did you get one yet?

    I will post more photos when I finish building it up.

    @Kam: thanks, much appreciated!

    I am interested in all things titanium and recently contacted Kish on a handlebar matter. I am concerned about the right seatstay/seat tube weld. Does it have a prominent hickey as it looks to have in the pic?

    Thanks guys. I saw the bikes Jim was taking up to Sea Otter; those painted ti cross bikes were beautiful. He really is a very nice guy, easy to talk to and work with, and his work speaks for itself.

    No, don't be concerned: that was a very sunny day and the shadows were tough. It's the same weld on the close-up: looks pretty d@#n nice to me!

    It's not Ti and it's not even MTB but it's the latest addition to my stable courtesy of Jim...

    The bike is just waiting for me to finish building the wheels.

    Here are a few.
    I apologize to the owners for posting these, but all these images have been posted on the net previously.
    I would suggest writing Jim Kish also, he probably has some updated pics.
