    Pic from last Sat's 6 hour race in a light rain, fwiw.

    I wont disapoint you - It's Titanium allright!
    The ride is good, very good. If I could change anything it would be the height of the front. Its wandering a bit when the climbing is steep. Thats compensated for -however, when the going points down or on long flat hauls.

    (Another setup. Not as aesthetic -but the Float is way better than the F100X and the Brooks saddle was "not my thing". The mallets is a that-day-only-tryout)

    Ye cool, over here we just have a choice between full alloy or full carbon and i'll be going for the alloy. I just want to find out about the handling, i'll be coming off a Klein hardtail thats now too small for me. There is a kona kula on sale in a shop near me for a fraction more.

    That bike brings back memories.

    In 2004 my wife did her first season racing as an elite on one of those. Ended up racing for Canada at World Championships on that bike (ended up 46th I believe).

    The Alma...

    ...At the top of Little Pine (Santa Barbara) descent, having just climbed the singletrack last Saturday. Such an incredibly, perfectly, sweet bike.

    Built up a new HT 1x9 bike for Tubewifey! It is almost finished, should have it completed tonight.


    It started out as a used ebay Jamis Dragon frame. The frame is made out of Reynolds 853 double butted cromo.








    A couple coats of aircraft remover and some elbow grease and you get this:









    Then 3 very light coats of primer:





    Then 3 coats of gloss white enamal and 3 coats of clearcoat:






    Finally start to bolt on some nice parts:



    It has Hugi hubs, DT Revolution spokes, Mavic 230 wheels; Continental Race 2.2 Supersonic tires, Ringle Skewers, MY2000 Rockshox SID (2.8lbs), Thompson Elite X4 stem and Masterpiece seatpost, WTB Speed V saddle, King headset, Salsa liplock, Shimano M770 XT crank (run as 1x9), XT rear derailler, XTR Ti 12-34 cassette, 959 SPD pedals.

    Still to go are XTR shifter/brake levers and Avid MagLite brakes. Not sure what handlebar will go on.

    Thanks. I was joking with her that her "new" bike is turning out really nice and is almost better (better frame and parts) than my SS bike and then I realized it was true.

    It seems to be the best one for my wife. She had a fancy Titanium Terry Womens saddle but hated it.

    I have used an original Selle Flite for years, my butt is used to it so I just grab one on ebay every so often.
