    Thanks. The LBS has an Ultegra 10sp Fierte (all Ti with carbon seatstays) for $2999, and I get 20% off. I'm going to do some research on swapping out Campy ergo levers and adding a j-tec shiftmate to it (her hands are a bit small for the Shimano levers).

    If we end up getting it, I'll be posting pics

    Cyde, I think the Fierte would be a great bike for Jess


    So I got home and in the mail today was a small gift from Herbert of Litespeed



    A Titanium Litespeed Bottle Opener! I may not use it to open bottles with, but it's a great conversation piece and is the coolest (nicest) bottle opener I have ever owned, Thanks Herbert

    And since I know folks never tire of looking at "nude" Ti pictures, or ANY pictures for that matter, here's a little more Ti porn.

    Hey Patriot, is that the new ride you just recently put together? Looks sharp. I love that Navy & Gold color combination, e.g., U. Michigan, Navy (duh), etc.

    You've got the same tires I have too.

    Sharp! Nice job.

    Yes, I just got it together a couple days ago, and it is fast. Very FAST. The color combo is strictly Navy, from when I served. I was always under the impression Ti frames are very flexxy, as I know some are, but the one I got is extremely tight. Time will tell, but I'm quite impressed, so far.

    Here is another Robbie McEwen Litespeed



    Robbie McEwen's Litespeed Ultimate : 9/3/04
    The very bike that Robbie McEwen rode to Green Jersey victory in the Tour de France 2002.


    I don't totally mind that other one you posted, sure it weird, and strange, but hey, it's different, and it's somebody else's bike

    Look closely. They swapped out the bars and pedals

    Those bars and pedals are not the ones McEwen used in the Tour. It's almost the very bike McEwen used. Not the same wheels either

    I think nerd is the operative word.

    Top Aussie Rules footballer Jason Akermanis owns and in the off season races a Litespeed Ghisallo that belonged to McEwen.

    Those are gorgeous Merlins. I won't tell you how mine broke in two places with 40K miles on it. But then again that was a 1991 model with straight guage tubing. And I am assured by people in the bike biz that while this isn't very typical - Tom Kellogg of Spectrum Cycles (who has more experience with ti than just about anybody) told me that >5% of high mileage (40-50K+ miles) frames ever fail. And the good news is that until a Ti frame fails- it essentially feels brand new. My 1995 Ibis still does. I doubt that my Ibis will EVER break. And your Merlins probably won't either.

    Apparently they said the bike is not exact as they had to replace the White handlebar taped that was on the bike. So that White saddle would have been even more badass

    You can see my Ti Litespeed by clicking "bicycles" in my signature.
    Sorry it doesn't look as fancy and polished and show-room new as some bikes in this thread.
    I guess that's because I ride mine.

    Do I detect sarcasm, and/or are you just trying to be contentious?

    Here is an Updated picture with Pedals, Computer and Saddle bag.



    Most of the snow on the streets have cleared and it's looking dry enough to ride, but there is lots of gravel and glass on the streets yet, so I have to ride my MTBs for the time being.

    Dean el Diente CTi

    Here is my compact geometry Dean el Diente CTi powder coated British racing green on the front 1/2. My compromise to getting Ti over Steel. Sorry guys but plain Ti is very boring (almost soulless) and big gaudy decals don't do it for me. Even the SR-71 was painted!!! I have since taken the decals off the DT and it looks even better. How that Metallic BRG glitters in the sun! However it is a Great ride!
