    You should really consider white bar tape.. with that white saddle..

    Master your environment, and you will survive just fine.

    this bike has on it. I stopped counting. Many.

    I still have a 1994 Ibis, it was riddent into a SUV at 25+ mph.. broke the downtube:

    ask an expert.

    Where can I get my Ibis frame repaired?
    For all pre-2005 Ibis bikes, we recommend you find a framebuilder who works in whatever material your original Ibis was made. We would not hesitate to recommend the Sycip Brothers, all their information is in the preceding question.

    If you need some love applied to your titanium Ibis, we also recommend you call Steve Potts. He's a master with the tig torch and a perfectionist when it comes to working on things made of metal. 415-663-1974

    near you.

    Spectrum is one of the country's best known frame repair and refinishing shops, offering a full line of repair and refinishing services at competitive prices.

    Cat0020,
    You should see if you can find a scrapper in your area that will buy titanium. No sense in just letting it sit around.

    Very nice! It almost looks identical to my Vortex.
    I'd love to swing a leg over a Destiny.

    I've got no problem with the paint job - I actually like orange. However there are far too many logos, with the wheels being the prime offenders. I've never cared for wheels that have logos that are bigger than the one on the downtube... but that's just my own two cents. The frame looks like it would be a nice ride!

    PS - Tell the client to make the seat level! That hurts almost more than the wheel decals!

    The seat tubes appear to be different where the front derailleur is mounted.

    I've always wanted a titanium road bike, so this spring I got two (actually three counting the MTB). One of the things I like about Ti is that, if the bike has not been crashed or abused, the frame is every bit as good as the day it was new. In addition, with the exception of some tubing shapes, there has not be a lot of significant recent innovation with all Ti frames. So that allows you to pick from the last twenty years of Ti design.

    In my case, I really wanted a Litespeed Ultimate and found a very low mileage 1998 model (ridden one season and put away). It is accurately described by all of the usual Crit bike adjectives and, yes, it accelerates like a rocket and is a real thrill to ride. Although not race legal, I really like the bent seat tube design.

    Suffering from the male tendencie towards accumulation, I then picked up a 1994 Litespeed Catalyst frame and fork, and built it up with a combination of new and used parts, including a compact crank. I wanted to keep some of the classic road bike appearance, so I installed the quill stem and Shimano 600 brakes (they match the Ti very well). This bike definitely has an all day quality to it, but is deceptively quick and climbs, descends and corners very well.

    Oh yes, for the terminally anal, the seats are slide far forward. This is not a reach issue, but to achieve my standard cockpit triangle.

    Now I'm looking for a 1990-94 Tachyon (700 wheels) or an Airborne Spectre.

    Just got my settlement for my hit-and-run accident from last year. Here is the result:

    I'd be doing myself, and you guys, a disservice if I didn't ride the hell out of this thing!
