    I know we mostly discuss all things related to dirt and Titus, but I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my new custom road ride!

    Fabulous!!!

    I got one on order and supposed to be here in June. Well, I'm not holding my breath but that pic sure gets me antsy!

    Looked at other road rides, but the R-X, Moto-lite, and Guapo in my garage kept whispering to me, "Vuelo, Vuelo...don't bring that Italian sh!t in here"...

    Hey, where's you're Exo seat post? Oh, that's right, same place mine is, not here yet That bike is HOT. I love the way they ride. I send customers out on the demo I have at the shop, and warn them. They laugh as they walk out the door, then look very sheepish when they come back......

    Hi...nice bike indeed!

    May i know what did u customize on the frame? Seems like the top tube is not as sloping as the normal vuelo geometry.

    Thank you. You have a keen eye to notice the TT slope. I went with a 3 degree slope on the TT instead of the 7 degree found on the stock. I prefer a more traditional looking frame, pure aesthetics on my part there. It may have added a little weight, but that doesn't phase me too much. The seat tube angle has been changed as well from the traditional 73.5 on the stock Vuelo to 74.5 to accommodate my short(er) femurs. I also paid a slight up-charge for the 'Titus' on the top tube.

    I took my wife's estrella around the block the other night, and I can't get over how freaking light it is.
