    Pimp my ride

    If you're interested in seeing some horrendously expensive small wheel bikes just click the link below. It's mostly Moultons and Birdys, but there are some others as well, with the likes of Chorus/ XTR/ Rohloff/ HED etc... I daren't even think how much these cost!

    I love that Moku site - the picture of the happy owners and the shots of that last .5mms of thread protruding from a part being machined away. That's what I call attention to detail. Heck - if I had my own workshop I'd probably do the same!

    My guess with the Ti parts is they are made in small runs entirely to cater for this sort of enthusiast. It's a shame about my own ignorance and language barrier - I'd love to natter with some of these guys on the forum.

    He he he... its true... it is a bit like bike porn... wish I knew the weights on some of those MOKU bikes.

    I'm sure you guys are familiar with "weightweenies.com"... they have some crazy bikes that make you drool... I think the last time I checked they had several FS mountain bikes (with discs brakes) at 16-17lbs... and they even list every piece's weight on the bike from stem to bolt.
