Titanium Disc Cross

Do-anything, go-anywhere crosser. Found this build in my LBS and swapped some parts out to my liking. Took a long time to figure out where it came from because it's not stamped with any sort of serial. Regardless, it's nicely made, feels buttery on the road, and oddly enough doesn't fit me half badly. I like the steep angles, too. Still needs a carbon fork.

Brutal executed!! Does the ti frame feel soft you say? I thought ti was the stiffest shit you could get on a bike.. xD

Thanks man! The frame feels plenty stiff when you hammer down on it, for sure, but titanium tends to dampen road vibrations really well-- which is more what I meant by ''buttery''

Throw an Enve fork on there, upgrade your hubs derailleurs and shifters. Than this thing will be featured. Cool frame, looks great.

Haha thanks, and I wish. The 105 / Ultegra combo does well enough for me so far, but we'll see... someday maybe.
