    She's a good looking thing! You are justifiably proud. Just don't get lazy and let someone steal or trash her. I've had my GT Xizang for over 15 years, since I bought her new in Denver in 1995, and I'm probably more in love with her than ever.

    Funny - old guys aren't supposed to be like this with their bikes, are we? Weren't we supposed to outgrow loving our bicycles back when we turned 16 or something?

    Some of us older guys would rather lose our women than our bikes. Bikes are fun and relieve stress - and aren't nearly as costly to maintain...

    My eyes are burning... what a stunner. Many happy miles and smiles!

    Can you or other Ti bike owners speak to the handling differences between Ti forks vs Carbon ones?

    Does anyone still make Ti forks? I don't think they ever caught on.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Probably too costly to build up a Ti fork to go with a frame. CF forks seem to be ubiquitous regardless of frame material.

    Trek330, have you washed your bike, yet?

    Sweeeeet! Lots of red, which I like.
