Beautiful Stephen. As are your others.

Very purposeful built bike. Looks fast just sitting there.

Enjoy!

Oh wow - I have never heard of that with the THM arms! I have 2 of the THM SRM's like yours - hopefully mine are both the late crank production models!

Yeah, while I love some of Stephen's Zancs (one serving as inspiration for my upcoming build, actually), can't say I'm crazy about stem and fork color. But mainly stem, I guess. That thing is clunky (imo, of course!).

Falz fork was an inspired choice, really. How is it different from Enve et al?

I can't wait to hear that Mike is working on my Adversa Al frame. Sometime this fall, hopefully.

Oh man Stephen (and Mike!), even better than I would've expected.

Since we're pretty close on size, this gives me a good idea of what mine is gonna look like. So cool that you got it ready before Lotoja. Good motivator to heap on some miles.

Sweet. So how many Ti Zanc's are out in the wild now? This is at least the 2nd one, right? I remember seeing a SSCX Ti frame on Mike's IG a while back?

Any plans for a Ti stem and/or seatpost?

Also, you have any SM/MD leftover Zanc jerseys/bibs? I need some new gear...

This makes 3 for sure, I think there was an early 4th out there too, but can't confirm. Exciting news when my fave builder and fave material for bikes sync up. Hmmm...

This looks awesome. Hope the list reopens soon, for several reasons. Wonder what sort of price jump we'll see between lugged steel and ti?

How about Zank-tanium or Titanato?
Beautiful frameset. Can't stop staring at it!
Can we get some up-close pics of the dropouts and BB?
Thanks and enjoy the ride!

Ti-conato
Zitanium

Actually, Mike is tagging them with #titanato, so I guess 59dualcab is our winner.

Folks,

Thanks for all the awesome feedback. You have to see all the different colors in the anodizing to appreciate the fork color. It really looks sweet in the sunlight.

Here are a couple of weld and drop out shots.

This is frame #4 including Mike’s personal rig. The falz fork was chosen because you can easily fit 28’s. It is really the best rim brake option for wide tires.

These dropouts will NOT be what is used for production, although I think the treatment is pretty dang special.

Mike called this one Proto-ti!

FYI, the color burst on the top tube is how your create the anodizing in case any one was concerned.
