Calling out all Ti Bikes..

Why should white and green frames get all the glory?

1998 Merlin ExtraLight upgraded with a WU fork.

Just did a bunch of tune ups on Seven and Serotta Ti bikes. It is such a pleasure to work on a bike that doesn't have tubes that will be crushed by front derailleur clamps, hangers that are always aligned and a finish that you can touch up to new in just a few minutes.

Love 'em. I've got a Merlin EL and a Litespeed Basso.

McMahon on Sonora Pass

Me with my McMahon at the top of Sonora Pass. The McMahon is in its nearly original configuration with DA 7400 group and DA/Open CD wheels complete with a 53/39 crank and 13/26 cassette. It made the 26% grade portion of the climb challenging to say the least. This year the bike will be sporting a DA 7800 group complete with compact crank and 12-28 cassette. The frame is at Bilenky getting coupled as we speak.

Cheers,

CaptStash....

Looks great Bob, have you been out on it a second time. Went out today for 5 hours on the Ti over a lot of bad roads and was not beat up at all by the frame. My last ride was carbon and would leave me crippled over the same ride (oh yea, same wheels and saddle).

My sweet Litespeed Icon.
