    Does anyone make a titanium fork for a road bike? I've seen some for mountain bikes but none for us leg shavers. I have an old Merlin and I would love to put a ti fork on her and ditch the carbon.

    Not as difficult when you do it on a nice recumbent.

    But I could only afford regular ti bikes for now:







    I rode one of these for 12,000+ miles in six years.. until I hit a car with it.

    Yeah, and I weenied out & only did the 200. There's a 400 miler that returns back over Thompson Pass! Check out the profile and scenery at this link, then come up and ride it. It's a RAAM qualifier.

    I am still riding an identical 1995 Ibis Ti Road. I don't know how many miles the frame has on it, but I figure about 30,000 miles from 1996-1999, then 5 years off for back issues, and now about another 15K miles or so over the past 2.5 years (I do most of my training on the Ibis). Still feels the same. Amazing bike.

    My DeSalvo

    Ok, I hope my pics aren't too large. This is my DeSalvo I got in July. R700 crank with Ultegra grouppo and Easton Orion II wheels. Love it. I didn't realize how my Klein was beating me up and what really surprised me, the DeSalvo feels a lot sharper than the Klein, of course, the better wheelset (Bonty Race on the Klein) probably factors in somewhat. Anyway, here it is:

    With the constant material debate threads, it made me think I had to post to this one again. It reminds of the good things in cycling, with a collection of some of the nicest bikes around.

    I redecaled my Tuscany as the cracked Yellow Decals were starting to bug me. The 2 photos below were taken last year when they didn't look half as bad as they di this year.








    Acetone removed the old decals rapidly







    The decals are slightly smaller with the newer font. I would like to get a set this size but in white, outlined in black. So if anybody has any leads at all, please let me know.

    Nice Spectrum Ti. I am considering visiting Tom Kellogg and having a Custom Ti Super (butted) frame built for me. Can you give me your opinion, likes dislikes of your frame? Is it butted Ti? things you might change? Before I drop a bunch of cash I like to get some personal reviews if possible. I currently ride a carbon frame and a steel frame. I just sold a Merlin Extralight becuase it was a little too large for me. I love the ride of that frame. I love Ti and imagine a custom fitted frame from Tom will be phenominal.

    Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
