I would love to see some close ups! I have a ti/carbon Wittson and would love to hear your thoughts on yours.

wow kaotic! thanks for sharing, and yes, welcome to the forum.

looks like a great bike, and i love seeing forum members in different parts of the world.

do you live in Lithuania or just buy the bike from there.

wherever you are, i do hope you'll keep posting and sharing some of the photos and local (and not local!) roads that you enjoy.

it's fun for us wanderlust fanatics to see new interesting places.

cheers!

That's awesome, I've never seen a ti/carbon Wittson. I love mine, it's my first ti bike but it's been fantastic. Handles well, and it's stiff but not overly so.
I'll post some close up pics soon (it's currently set up on the trainer right now)

Thanks! I'm not from Lithuania, I'm originally from Toronto Canada and recently moved to NY (back in Sept).
I bought the frame directly from Wittson (through their eBay store) and had it built up from the guy at Blacksmith in Toronto. 2 of my riding buddies in Toronto have custom all road Wittson ti bikes too so we've got a pretty good representation back in Toronto!

It is the RC Harris Water Treatment Plant in the beaches neighbourhood of Toronto.

When I saw the pic, I was like wow, that building looks familiar, but I have never seen it from that angle.

Yup, good eye! It's a very cool building that was built in Toronto in the 1930's.
