    I've seen this posted elsewhere before.

    That titanium would've been better used on a road bike IMO.

    It seems nice, but that saddle looks painful.

    Would ride the hell out of that. Not with that saddle, though -- that thing looks it could end up inside your butt if you make one false move.

    No Ti nipples?!? Fail!!!

    Fantastic Ti fetish piece, though. A+ for effort and execution.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Cool, but I'm never buying a new bike with a quill stem ever again. Ever.

    by far the most weight-irresponsible choice on this bike. but to hold that opinion regardless of weight concerns is... well, i think it's dumb. i love my two quill bikes. i hope for a third.

    I haven't seen the Morati name in a long time. They make a nice ti bike as well, wonder if they are still around...

    that saddle looks like a great way to slice your femoral artery

    I know that there is a charge plug frame that is Ti, but that thing is rare and $1200 for the frame.

    ti fork is my only real concern. having ridden some considerably beefier welded ti mtb forks that were flexy as hell, this road fork (is that really lugged?) has got to be scary. put a nice carbon front end on and i'd ride it like a boss.

    oh, and you could have used ti foil ribbon to wrap the bars maybe?
