Fall ride pic in Waukesha County, Wisconsin.
This thread is making me want a ti bike. Anyone got any feedback on a lynskey cooper ?
Here's giantdefy's build:
I will post some new images of my Merlin again here. I did on page 4 of this thread back in 2005 I think. I am living in Prague and I have to say that for riding in the city on cobbles and across tram tracks, it is a superior bike! I love it when I come up on some one on a new CF bike and they look at the Merlin with Record and sort of stop and stare with this, "what is that?" expression on their face!
I'm thinking of selling my road frame and picking one of these this spring. I'm a sucker for the triple triangles

1997 GT Edge
2012 Kilo TT Stripper
Litespeed Blue Ridge, Serotta Colorado CRL, Cannondale Delta-V, Bacchetta Ti-Aero, 67 Schwinn StingRay stick shift purchased new with my paper route money.
where can you get that GT ti frame?
This is a decent article on the GT Edge II Ti frame:
Apparently, they worked with engineers at Cannondale and the geometry on the GT is similar to that on a Caad10. Interesting...
My somewhat exotic Ti Bike
I dig the Colnago! I like seeing Ti frames from the not so usual names.

Some progress... BB installed:
Headset pressed in:
couple of photos from my ti-cx bike in production (yeah not road but everbody loves frame photos)
Ordered from a Russian company called Triton. There is a 30 page topic on mtbr. Much cheaper than eu, us frame builders. I am still waiting for the frame so I cant comment about quality. But the other guys in mtbr seem to love their frames. I will shortly review when I build up. Also there is a custom ti road frame built for a big guy, which you might like more.

1999 Merlin Ti standard. One of the last frames to come out of their MA shop.
