Great info.

I'll try to print that for displaying my Titan. It's an excellent, smooth bike. I hear about issues, and I have another (cracked) frame as well, but I'd ride mine anywhere.

This has been super helpful for ID'ing a bike I'm (fingers crossed) going to look at tomorrow. Ad is for am "Italian made" titanium bike which I am assuming means it has at least one Campagnolo component. Seems like these were well regarded BITD.


Made a firm appointment... gone before I got there. The Craigslist life.

Thanks!
