holy **** that thing (the strong) looks so nimble! beautiful bike, how does it ride? what material is that? (i hope its TI, i was just talking about a super similar dream bike today)
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)

Pic from last Sat's 6 hour race in a light rain, fwiw.
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.
10 year break
her she is after a ten year break, with some new and old parts.
