Post Your Titaniums

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Post Your Titaniums

Well seeing as there is a lot of Post your ________ threads, I though it would be nice to see everyone's TITANIUM bikes. So , lets see that Gray Matter.

Here is mine just recently finished construction.

Here's an old picture of mine. Since the picture I have gotten rid of the pie sized cassette, added carbon bar and stem, zero sl pedals, record brakes, powertap SL rear wheel or Spinergy Stealth Carbon PBO wheels.

Viper,
Have you had a chance to ride your Lightspeed yet? I'm guessing the weather up in Canada is still bad.

Why don't you just take a new picture?

Ah finished at last. It looks super, Viper. My Litespeed has the Record treatment as well. Here's an image of mine:

I've tried a few times but the color never shows up right. Once the weather gets better I'll try to get the bike cleaned up and take a few. Right now it's hanging upside down with no tires or pedals on it.

Aw, c'mon Viper. You killed the thread right off the bat! It's possible there's never been a Ti bike as beautiful as that Tuscany of yours. My Firenze with Ultegra, which I love dearly and have had for only 8 months, looks like a cheap Huffy by comparison. I'll post a pic later on, though, anyway.

That Tuscany is truly a piece of art. Will you actually take it out of the studio?

Here's my Moots. These pictures are old and crappy, but you get the idea. Mr Moots now has a Fizik Aliante but other than that he still looks pretty much the same. If I had my way there would be some component swapping but unfortunately I'm currently a full time student. Upgrades will just have to wait until I pass my EIT.

The only titanium I own is a plate holding my clavacle together.
I got that when the carbon fork on my aluminum bike decided to yield explosively.

Enjoy
