Thought I would put all 10, and 2 frames dating back to a '93 Co-Motion road bike I built through the Routt RSL from this summer. This does include my wife's and my daughter's bikes. Downsizing, time to sell some...

That looks like a retrospective of your career, Butch! That’s an awesome collection. Were any of your daughter’s bikes kid sized? Would love to see them.

Back when Mark @ Paragon's kids were small and my daughter was small he sent some parts and I was going to build a "convertible" wheel size frame. Life and work got in the way. My kid is 19 now so she has gotten my wife's hand me downs. They ride the same size, which makes things very handy. Not shown are the 2 steel mtn bikes (commuters) and the first frame I ever made, a lugged Reynolds 653 tubed frame (1988) with an ugly marble paint job

Speaking of Mark @ Paragon...and of titanium...he's selling his personal Moots Smoothie, which was welded by Brad Bingham back in the day...cool piece of history, but not something I have room for at the moment...and I'd probably want the 22" version anyway... Note the prototype Moots seatpost.

Holy cow, Butch. That's like a Moots museum! Quite a collection. Nice!

There is an 18" Brad welded full Ti Smoothie in the back of the pile with Crossmax and Rapid Rise XTR - vintage, low miles, probably will end up on ebay

Any idea of how many single rider titanium bikes co-motion made? I had one a little ago, was a pretty nice frame.

Not sure how many Ti singles, not very many, less than 20 I think. I know I did 7 or 8 Ti tandems including the one in the photo and that Dwan did 1 more after I left. It was tough with the set up we had at Co-Mo to do Ti. They went forward with 7075 along with steel a couple years after I left in '95.

Well, this thread goes back -- some great looking bikes.

I posted this some time ago (elsewhere on the board):

Recently updated my Carl Strong titanium with Dura Ace 9000 and Reynolds 46 carbon wheels. Rides really well.

2 x Ti for the long, bumpy and sandy days.

My No.22 Broken Arrow in front of a riding pal's Mosaic, taken at a gravel race last weekend.
