This...as fredalicious as it is (and not to mention dangerous as hell with all the route bottlenecks and kids) I do it every year just for this reason.

LOL.. I'd hardly call it a debate. Basically GMM's source confirmed my point. The fact that 3/2.5 and 6/4 "may" go through additional processes (annealing) or testing for a specific job is a moot...

What they were probably saying is that not all grades of Ti are appropriate for recreational use. Not that there is a different "version" of 6/4 or 3/2.5 Ti used. If there were why have a "standard"?...

Sport grade??? I'm sorry but titanium is classified by it's alloy composition. Yes some alloys are more expensive than others but 6/4 and 3/2.5 are 6/4 and 3/2.5 regardless of what they are used for....

Whichever you chose, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised as there is not a bad bike in lot. That said, custom is over rated. 95% of us don't need it and sometimes (I know in my case twice) a...

Miche makes both campy and shimano spacers. I've mixed widths to custom tune a miche cassette. That said having individual cogs is a must.

Odds are it will fit fine. The only negative I can forsee is the HT length and how short the fork was cut. Again odds are pretty good given the generous HT length for the 51.

The only thing that makes sense to me would be an alloy crank ala Rotor. Maybe even light weight brakes (Negative G style).

A sub 1500gm Ti frame for less than $1700 in a 58cm? That's a pretty tall order. Have you looked at a Lynksey Cooper CX? Probably a bit over 1100 gbp but its probably the closest I can think of, in a...

Same boat as you. Had orders to Afghanistan (Afghan Prev Med Advisor), cancelled 2 days before CST. Pretty bummed initially but kinda glad now given recent events.

Thanks. I'd like to try tubeless at some point but I've read too many mixed reviews on the current selection of tires.

I'm 69" and 31.5" ish inseem. My Helix and my previous L3 are mediums. Don't go by the online chart, I find the rec's way off. Unless you need the extra HT length, go with a medium.

That's probably one of "chuck's bikes" tsunamis. He's since closed shop but there was lots of his frames sold since they were so inexpensive.
