    It Is Done!!!!! Damn They Look Good!

    Okay, first of all I want to thank you all for helping me build my ML2.
    I asked some questions, I read a lot of threads, put some bids in ebay, waited for good deals at Chain Reaction, and at the end ordered the frame from Competitve Cyclist.
    The frame arrived yesterday, I gave it a huge hug for an hour or so and today I went to a nice guy for the build.

    And that's it, it is done. It took me 5 months to buy all the parts but I hope it is worth it.

    I will do my best to get a camera and post some pics.

    Thank you all,
    Danny

    Braggin' bout your new sweet bike and posting just a pic of the box is like going to your strip club and the dancers not taking the clothes off...

    Actually, I like the box picture. I love that guy on the SuMo puttin' a little mustard on it. I have that picture on a brown T-shirt (from last year I think)...it's my favorite (and my wife's) T-shirt I've ever owned.

    Wish I could find more of those T-shirts.

    Yeah, I've seen one in the flesh, and it's ubercool... the color coordination was sweet also (not like EG jerseys, sorry... but I'm not warmed at the color combo).

    They're on sale at Titus site now...

    If they have your size, you'd have no problems getting one from them directly.

    They are so fast!!!

    I don't know how TITUS are doing it but this frame is fasssst!!!!!

    For example: I got a regular 12 mile ride I do twice a week (on a road)
    with my Gary Fisher Marlin it took me around 1 hour and 5 min
    with the Titus it took me around 50 min!!!
    Unbelievable!!!

    I will have to check it again but It really felt fast.

    With your comparison, I have to check it with other bikes, I do my conditioning ride early in the morning in a 20 km ( around 12.4 miles) loop,at least once a week, and I average between 43-45 min. I am not sure it will have that kind of difference, because 15 min difference is a really long time.. But goodonya that bike is built for you
