Suggest.. your referencing a shadow.

1" quill stem. ?

Press in bearings... ? One would have to know that territory thoroughly.

The way this one is configured your in the 21-22 lb range.

Titanium is the best riding frame.. by miles.

Older bike.. fork is how old?

Well I've got a LiteSpeed Owl Hollow Ti mountain bike with all ti parts except XTR..it weighs in at 17.9 lb,the fork and all add-on bike parts are ti, made in Europe as custom parts. I used Pauls brakes and a set of Mavic older Helium clinchers.
This is a beautiful bike, I tried to get my oncologist to buy it, he can certainly afford it.
You're right Ti rides like chrome-moly...however I'll give carbon a thumbs up as my Bora Argon Gallium Pro comes in at 13.5 with all durance- DI2 DuraAce carbon pedals, and DuraAce carbon wheel set. I asked the question assuming bp2k8 might have the weight with a bag. Not sure its a true extradite, as you can reference weight weinies to put the parts together to get the composite weight.

BK2K8...GLWS

Do you know the frame year? I'm guessing late 90's.

Cant believe this has not sold yet! Do you have this posted on CL or Ebay? I was in the market for a Ti frame earlier in the year. Got a Litespeed Catalyst in great condition for around the same price. But it was a steal compared to the other Ti options out there. So at 800 i cant believe this has not flown of the shelf.

Beautiful. My size as well.
Is it still for sale? Would you entertain an international shipment (of course within reason or otherwise supported by buyer)?
