    Some very beautiful bikes , congrats gentlemen.

    Here is a pic of my Obed, I have replaced the old SID by a Fox RLT 80 which has done miracles for front end stability in tight corners. Sorry for the skinnies, we were getting ready for a road ride

    Titanium or Bust !

    Nice Litespeed Obed! I have one bought in '96. I upgraded everything on it.

    The nice thing about these fine titanium frames is that they will outlive every component on them. They will probably even outlive us

    Not always, I'm trying to find out how good CS is with Litespeed, I already started the warranty process with my LBS. Wish me luck.

    Hmm, looks like a clean cut alongside the welding. Should be no problem to get this fixed under warranty

    Well, the only thing is that since they no longer make the V-brake option for the Sewanee......, I don't want discs on my Litespeed

    Wolf, Nice saddle...looks like it gets a lot of use! Sweet looking bike too.
    Also, I agree on the new fork adding front-end stability. I replaced my original 2000 SID with a 2009 SID Team. Its like night and day.

    I found the Flite too narrow for my sit-bones, but I worn out a WTB SST the same way. I had to replace it with a WTB Pure V which has worked out very well, but now SSTs are back in WTB the line-up.

    Yup a new rear Ralph is on the way this week, not sure if I like the RRs better than the MKs yet but they do roll fast. The wheelset is completely different. My 26" set are Mavic 717s with a C'dale front and WTB laser lite hub with DT Revos. The new set is a c'dale front with a King ISO disc rear, sapim lasers on stan 355s. So far so good.

    Sorry to ask, but there are 650b wheels in front and rear?

    Nope just up front. I had dual 650bs on my C'dale Rush but I prefer the 26" in back (faster spin up). Best of both worlds.

    Beautiful...looks like my 1996

    Edit add: BTW was just goofing with my camera in B & W mode last Sunday and took this post ride shot at home. [1996 was the last year of the Vandermark designed frames.]

    1991 Ocoee FS

    Just wanted to share a just recently completed old school project.

    1991 Ocoee FS.





    Am Classic Ti seatpost


    Suntour XC Pro cranks


    XTR 950


    I'm missing the headbadge and a couple of decals. I wonder where I can get them.
