Ti Zanconato

I got some teaser pics of weld porn from Mike today of my incoming Ti gravel bike. The bike will be hydraulic disc, Di2, clearance for 40s...

No paint. Mike is going to anodize logos.

Looks great and am sure you're excited to get on it!

Can you tell us more about the internal routing and bottom bracket (looks like an insert).

I think its just a radial groove to identify left-hand threads.

Looking forward to full pics of this when its done!

The bottom bracket is standard English threading. Because of using a Praxis crankset with a 30mm spindle I thought we would need to go to a T47 BB for clearance of the Di2 wires. Mike said he does some extra machining of the standard English BB for the needed clearance.

The hydraulic rear brake cable will also be internal routing through the down tube.
