Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I've made some changes to the fleet so I thought I'd update them all in one place.

Archon T1


Quintana Roo TiPhoon (just after finishing Ironman Canada)


My CX Rig (fun with sharpie -it's a Taiwanese Ti frame relabeled to my house brand.)


Titus Racer X 29er latest edition to the fleet


My old Ghisallo

Seatpost is some Ebay job I picked up about two years ago for $15
The stem is a stock Deda Zero 100 Dark Metal 120mm 82deg. The lighting in the picture obviously is bad, but in the daylight it matches the Ti quite nicely. I'm still on the hunt for a good 120mm 80deg Ti stem without shelling out $300 for a part that will be less stiff and heavier. This is my weight weenie bike afterall and I'd like to get it to sub 13lbs. (it currently sits at 13.8 with pedals and cages)

Do you have a build sheet on WW? I have the same frame and group but am no where near 13.8 lbs. I haven't weighed it recently, but I'm probably closer to 16lbs.

Heres mine, had white handlebar tape which looks good, but only lasted a couple of months. Switched to sliver, should last much longer. right click - view image (Mac) to see larger picture. I think PC might be the same.

Here's my (Bill) Holland Ti --- without trying, it ended up at around 18.4, which isn't too bad considering it's a 60cm frame:
