    Yes and no. The frame is on Ebay at the moment. Been itching to try Ti for a LOOONG time and finally gave in Also sold the Lefty so I could swap between rigid and suspension at will.

    I'm jealous. Nice ride.

    What's that hair-like thing in the picture showing off your rear end and drivetrain?

    Well, I think it's one of my fiance's hairs? My hair's not that long so it must be her's. I guess you REALLY examined those photos!

    I guess I have an eye for that kind of stuff.

    I wonder how well the brakes stop with such a small braking surface area on the rotors. I wonder about heat management too. I hear brake power tends to fade as it heats up. I guess I'll look that up, since I love good brakes.

    Edit: MTBR has a review of something similar here: http://reviews.mtbr.com/blog/ashima-airotor-review/ (same as this from MBA). Not exactly the same as yours though. First brake rotors I've seen that are designed to mount with the twist pattern going the other way. I read through and see now... having it reversed caused problems with warping. The way you have it mounted it the normal way while the way in the review is "reversed".

    My trails don't have a lot of long downhills so I've always run lightweight rotors. If I had some loooong downhills and constantly overheated them then I'd run a more substantial rotor. These KCNC rotors are a new 2011 design and I haven't had a chance to ride them yet. I plan on giving a ride report in the brake forum when I get some time with them. I have organic pads in front and sintered in rear to really see how well they do

    That is a beauty. How is the ride now that you've had her a few weeks?

    That Yeti is pretty, but can I ask why you got rid of the Ti after less than a year? Just curious.

    The Moto Ti has more race oriented geometry and I ride nothing but very aggressive trails. It's by no means a bad bike, it just wasn't for me and my usual stomping grounds. I like slack geo and shorter chainstays. Also, I saw the Yeti in person at the local shop and had to have one
