Fudgy, have you had any trouble with the seatpost clamp? Did Scott get that figured out?

I had originally a 2012 frame and yes, plenty of problems with the seatpost clamp. That was warrantied when the little clamp-plug pushed into the toptube carbon. The warranty frame had a bad bb shell that was too loose. Eventually the whole bb moved around. That was warrantied and they sent a 2013 model frame. This one has been relatively trouble free, though I did discover last week the seatpost had slipped a bit. I cleaned it, re-pasted it, and re-torqued it down and it's held for ~100mi so far. Only time will tell for sure.

It's still a ****ty over-designed interface that puts way too much structural responsibility on the pushing-strength of carbon.

Otherwise, I love the bike. The ride is great, it's very stiff even when I'm swole to 185lbs.

REx, it's a lyzne road drive pump. I give 4/5 stars. Nice flexible hose, gets to high pressures, only dislike is that the tube doesn't give much of a handhold when inflating. Thankfully I don't use it much.

Not the best photo but I wasn't seeing much other Ti so I thought I'd add my '05 Merlin. For racing it wore other wheels this year ( well thrashed Ksyriums and later some Easton), but this has been my go to rig for hard training and my foray through Cat 5 and into Cat 4. The frame has probably logged 25-30k miles by now ( not all by me...I got it as a retired racer/trainer a few years ago) and the Record 10 group is going strong I guess on the 3rd right shifter rebuild (?)...love this bike even though I have a "plastic" bike or two that most would consider a more proper race rig.






sorry...i realize this is probably more truck stop quality bike porn.....

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

It's the bike that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I've outrun Specialized bicycles. Not the low end beach cruisers mind you, I'm talking about the big Di2 Shivs now.



I got some all black Jet 50's that really make it pop (except they're on my TT bike and I'm too lazy to swap the cassette to Campy)

Just built ready to be put away until next season...




Will tweak the front end but should be spot on. As I get more flexibility back the front end should drop a fair bit.




With some tubs on-

Look 695. Only about 100 miles on it. What an upgrade from my 10 year old Trek.

Didn't want to start a new thread, and I can't really tell from a lot of these pics, but what brand cockpits are most of you running? I am thinking of finally upgrading my Bontrager cockpit but have no idea what are mid-tier/upper-tier cockpit brands.

I've got Deda bars (RHM01) on three of my four bikes, and Deda stems on two of them. That's definitely mid tier. Bar tape on three of them is 3T, due to the fact that I got it on a three for $20 deal.
