    Dream titanium frame?

    I'm currently riding a Bianchi MUSS with Pace Carbon Fork, but have recently started dreaming of a Titanium Frame. Before I start figuring out how long it will take to save up for such an extravagance, does anyone have any recommendations?
    Cheers

    I don't have any personal experience with titanium frames, but if I ever get around to buying one, here is the first (only?) place I'll look.

    I'll third the Black Sheep recommendations! The Ti HighLight was my dream bike, until I saved up and bought one! Great bike and great experience - worth every penny!

    titus- great price for ti (in comparison to others) and a ride that can't be beat.

    I'm dreaming of a Ericksen, Moots, or Steve Potts. I still have plenty of time to narrow down the field. If I had to make the call today, It would be a Potts wit a Type II fork.

    I only wish about a Ti beach cruiser style frame but like many of you it's only a dream.

    It's been a while since I've been to the Spicer site. That Quadangle frame is great.

    If you want truly custom and built to YOU, check into Jonesbikes.com. You will need to have some serious coin and wait available but my oh my how nice! He will also build you a set of wheels to match.

    I have a EverTi.com Synergy Ti hardtail and I love it but it has broken twice and was
    repaired both times for free. My og my I like Ti under my fly!

    Wasn't the "Newsboy" a Ti bike, I'm pretty sure it was, and it was stinkin' awesome, I'd love one.
