The welds on these things are stunning -- well, the whole aesthetic is stunning -- minimal, but progressive.

I've never seen that 'faded' anodization before -- was that something you guys developed?

Incredible!! Just acquired a Ti frame (not as nice) and I have been scratching my head over the components, wheels and the like and I will be building it inspired in these bikes.
Thanks for posting
PS: My 1st Ti frame BTW. I've been lurking here, CL and EBAY for the right price and size. Can't wait to start building.

Beautiful craftsmanship. Wonderful job.

Photo critique: I think your set-up would work fine if you change to a white or light gray seamless back drop. Your current set-up doesn't provide enough light. On my monitor, at least, in many of the shots it is very difficult to see the bikes. Either add more light sources (strobes, flashes, hot lamps, whatever,...) or change the back drop to a lighter color.

Bikes are way coool though.

Good looking bikes all of them but the last one with a regular headtube stands out visually. For me thats just so much better looking. Infact it looks amazing.

Great work! Who knows, some day!

+1 the dark background makes it look like you are hiding the details.
