Unterhausen, i'll get the pics up... in 3-4 years as the S&S won't be done for a while.
Scooper, thanks for the link. I've also found pictures of retrofitted Coopers with S&S. As changing of tube shape makes the bike custom and no longer a Cooper, I think mine would look something like this.
JoeB, great to hear about your positive experience. I hope mine will be similar. How long was the turnaround?

Personally I would step back from the largely unnecessary Ti up charge and get the real bike that is right for you. Or splash out and get it all. But getting buffaloed into a white elephant with a kludgy take down position at great expense just because there is a sale. That's when my inner voice starts yelling "is there an adult in charge here?"
Thanks for the concern, but the frame will be a size small, so it'll fit. I already have a great fitting bike, but i need a bike for when i'm home and when i travel in the future. This will do that for me. I also looked into the Ritchey Breakaway bikes, but decided against them as the bike box is 68 dimensional inches.
Edit: the lynskeys are actually are CX frames
, but i assume the tubes to be similar to the cooper.
Few more from Lynskeys. If the frame is a production frame, the tubes aren't round.
