    I don't get this. Why not get a Seven? Better bike, made to fit you!!

    It would seem in most cases with bicycles, X versus Y, "Better" is subjective at best....

    About 3K on my Dean now. Love it. I wish it would stop raining in Northern California.

    Switched to a Specialized Toupe saddle since these pictures.

    You know what is cool, that I never really thought of, is Titanium bikes seem to be tight knit genetically. The unpainted looks really make the Titanium bikes seem more of a family of bike, independent of who the maker is. It's as if its a certain race or culture of bike

    All the bike posted here have some level of elegance not common in a lot of other bikes. They all look so classic, yet sleek and modern, without resorting to gimmicky or strange frame shapes with gaudy paint jobs.

    Awesome job Gang!

    I agree, the photo tour has been super. Viper, I think yours is my favorite of the bunch, including my own. I'll give it my blue ribbon. But I'll keep mine because it is a perfect fit. I'd give the red ribbon to Cleave's Bianchi. I've owned and loved celeste bikes in the past so that probably biased me a little. They're all super rides and, like the rest of you, I sure do enjoy riding Ti. Keep the images coming. I'm enjoying it.

    Wow FMW, high Accolades to be sure, considering the present company Thanks.

    I bet your bike and my bike feel almost Identical in ride and functional performance I can't wait to ride it and have actually been keeping my eye open for nice clear patches of road where I could possibly take it down to ride. However that would just be all wrong for the inaugural ride to be hastily done like that.

    Your Serotta and all the other rides are beautiful. ViperZ, please post your first ride report and px when it warms up--from some of your other posts I get the feeling you have a hankering to do a classic build? i can't wait. . . (drools vicariously)
    must have missed that the first round

    Yes, you are right, I would love to build a classic touring style bike or a 80's Italian Racer based on C-Record, complete with Syncro down tube shifters and Delta Brakes

    Hi ViperZ. I was traveling on business this week which accounts for my tardy arrival, but as soon as I saw the thread I took a new picture of the TST and got it posted. The Ritchey WCS on my TST is original to the build, although I have flipped it. The new 4-Axis I picked up is gong to be for my Allez Pro.

    I saw the pics you posted of your new Forte Pro MG/TI pedals in your Tuscany thread and Ostuni' retraction as to their worthiness for your bike. I've been riding these pedals on all my bike for some time now and I think you're going to enjoy them especially with the Sidis Dominator's - same combo I use.

    I'm sure you are right. And I'm sure you are going to enjoy yours. I ride mine more than all the other bikes combined. Mine has a really nice mix of performance and comfort. It is almost a perfect group ride machine. I can ride it for hours but, at only 17 1/2 lbs. it moves around like a racer.

    The Record drivetrain is a treat. I didn't think there would be a noticeable difference but there is, particularly in the speed at which it finishes shifts. It finishes shifting before I can let go of the lever. I don't have any experience with the Eurus wheels but I have a pair Ventos on one bike and they are heavy but excellent. I assume the Eurus are simply light and excellent. I think you did a careful and excellent job matching the parts and I don't see any compromises. Your bike will be about as good as bikes get and that's a very good thing. I wonder if you've weighed it, by the way.
