We didnít get enough interest to make a go of it.

Not a fail.

Not exactly exactly sure of the components yet ...

Hey Paul,

Thanks for looking into it.

Also, thanks for resurrecting the Swift.
Personally, I'm looking for any excuse to buy one...but need to clean up my garage, get rid of stuff, and wait for my son to be able to ride a bike.

Hi all! It's been a long time, 10 years since I started this Ti Swift thread. I still love my Ti Swift and it is essentially the only bike of 3 I ride. I ride it several times a week, no more commuting, I moved to a seaside town in WA and now work from home, still got my job in Melbourne. My Ti Brompton gets occasional work when we go on holidays and bring those with us.
My Ti Swift is unchanged from the original build, apparently I. nailed. it. I think I posted pics of it before. It's a bit dirty at the moment, the handlebar leather tape is peeling a bit, and the original seatpost cracked through the bottom bottle cage welded nut. That was always my fear. I found the crack one day when I wondered again about that design feature and looked at it with a magnifier. I ordered another plain seatpost (not from Titan, their postage scared me off) which I think is better than the original.
