Personally, Im not a fan. Twisted spokes, color combos, oury grips, the downtube guard and chainstay protector also dont seem needed.
There is a lot that is pretty cool about this bike, but you nailed all the stuff that isn't right on the head.

Hope you enjoy it.

My buddy gave me the spokes a customer didn't want and I had to twist them to make them work.The frame wasn't cheap and I've always felt more comfortable protecting the downtube.I forgot the chain stay protector, that's gone..lol

I'm not a huge of the spring tensioner, over all I like the build..

Looks like a great frame, no idea about ti... Colors are a little not my style but it is your bike !

I've had pretty good luck with Ti, I use to run the Koza-Mig20 mod and it never broke on me.This builds got some really beefy parts on it and I think it'll hold up.

I've never been to into color matching my builds, I had the parts from other builds and they got use on this build.

Parts can be swapped or painted to appease the non riding vanity fuck face crowd. I like the Ti for weight savings, frame weight? Find street trials bikes way too heavy but I'm a pogo puff. Personally would lower seat or have raised seat tube to be an aesthetics ass hole, see above ^^. Nice to see a non inspired bike actually hope you love it and have fun. You can't have fun unless your bike has a seat it's impossible.

I haven't dialed in the bar position, brakes or seat yet.As for the ride, I'm assuming it'll bring me back to the way I use to ride.Just hit spot after after spot and didnt migrate for hours in one..lol

Chainstay protector is on the non drive side?
I used that while working on my bike, while on my bike stand.So my chewed up bike clamp arm, doesn't gouge into the Ti.The plastic pads are extremely worn down, right to the metal itself..

I doubt that chain stay protecto would do much from a real hit..lol

I dig it.

Cool to see a bike built up to be ridden as priority one.
Definitely not your run of the mill poser Inspired that will be for sale in two months with a lame ass excuse for the sale.

Ride it hard Dman and get somebody to snap some pics.

Thx Steve, I'll bring it to Ray's for next years trip..
