Um I havent heard anything about, but love the looks of the little man, but I will say, as beerman would probably also say, get a Tree Sprocet.. the best. You dont have to worry about good or bad brake cables.. a brake cable is a brake cable... I have an Odysey slick cable.. basic cable, does me good, will do you good.

The titanium Profile sprockets are heavier than their aluminum counterparts. Why? Because titanium is more dense than aluminum.

Not really. Maybe for small, machined parts like bolts and nuts, yes, but not for a machined sprocket. A ti sprocket doesn't cost all hat much more than an aluminum one.

Why? So it could snap at the welds after flexing every time you do so much as manual?

IDK if it would snap that's why it's a prototype.

Considering that the current Haro Mirra is a completely blatant rip on the Terrible One Barcode, and Taj's titanium prototype snapped, I wouldn't have any higher expectations for the Mirra.
