Show me your mixed materials bikes!

We have a thread for titanium and carbon bikes, so why not a thread of mixed material bikes as well? I have only test ridden a Nove and enjoyed the feel of it. Ever since then I have wanted to try out a ti/carbon mixed frameset.

I found one that was very unique and looked to be a good fit. I'd like to see what the rest of the folks here have in the mixed materials realm! Post em up!New-WITTSON-Custom-95-Road-Titanium-Carbon-Frame.jpg

I was wondering what you ended up with! Looks cool.

Both are seamless transitions. First is Ti/carbon. Thread is here.





Second is aluminum and carbon. Cannondale SystemSix Barloworld Team Rep frameset. It's been stripped (Campy was donated to the Holland) and is just a parts hanger currently, but trying to sort out how to rebuild it.. It's been 9s Record, 10s Record, 11s Chorus - Gotta figure out what I wanna hang on it next to actually ride it..

Matt, your bikes are top notch and your photography is MORE than respectable. Keep on keeping it real, my brother!

I made some changes this week to my Ottrott. Finally admitted I’m too old for the 53/39 crankset so I put a 50/34 in its place. Also swapped out the pictured wheels for a new set of Fulcrum Racing Zeros.

Removed before there's a meltdown in the cosmic fabric that holds the world together. Whew, close call.

Slightly shrunken version of PaMtbRider's
HED 3 stinger tubulars are an experiment
Coming soon: subtle multicolor Cinelli bar tape that Tyler showed

My CSI, yet another steel bike with C.F. Fork:


Same for these two Lemonds:
NB
Just adding a carbon fork does not a mixed material frame make.

Early Prince

This would go just as well in the Y2K era thread. I swapped the original 7700 from this onto my friend's carbon DeRosa, then rebuilt it for him with Tiagra. Later built him a touring bike and he gave me the Prince in trade. Need to find some DA bits for it and some more appropriate wheels.
