    Clydes and Ti Road Frames

    Hi Clydes and skinny lurkers,

    I'm pretty sure I made up my mind on going with a Ti frame for my first road bike. I come from a mountainbike history and am looking to get some road riding in. I'm 6'6" 265 and have my eye on the Seven Alaris or Litespeed Siena.
    I'm looking for any and all advice to these frames and or other recommendations from your experience.
    Looking forward to seeing if any Clydes are riding these frames.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    If you can afford it, how can you go wrong with a custom built Ti Seven?

    It will last a lifetime.

    If you are into bicycle monogamy it could well be the last frame you ever buy. It will last you a lifetime.

    I'm more of a Bike Harem kind of guy, but there is always a spot for a Ti frame in my world.

    Either one of those frames will work great. The only thing the Seven has is a little extra bling factor. Go for the one that strikes your fancy more.
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.
