I really like your bikes, especially the fact that they look "raw" i.e. without any paint (but form the photos I can't tell if it is the bare metal or a paintjob).
As a matter of fact when I will decide to invest some seriuos money into a bike I will buy a Schindelhauer, a German manufacturer of "minimal bikes" that can be bought with a raw alluminium finishing.
I can't post links to external websites since I'm a newbie, but if you don't know them I really suggest to have a look.
Although I live at the foot of mountains, thereís lots of flat (ish) places on the way to work. The trails I use run along creeks. They arenít highly technical but they become more so with speed. Mountain biking is a good way to keep commuting fresh.

The bikes I posted are both titanium. Itís usually not painted because it doesnít need it. Itís inert to most any chemical so it wonít oxidize. Unpainted it also shows off that it is titanium. You pay for the cachet so you might as well show it off.
