Thanks that is good to know & yes yours looks tight.

I bet that etched on Ti looks awesome too

Here it is with a painted outline. I will see if I can find one of the headbadge bead blasted on.

Agreed. I like inlaid graphics like this. Adds depth to the finish.

Falz fork

FYI about the Falz fork that was posted in the General section with the void. I pulled my fork from the recent acquired Pathos last night to make the final steerer tube cut...especially after seeing that post. The steerer on the fork is rock solid with no flaws, even pulled the small QC sticker. I also have a Falz V1 not in use and that one is flawless as well. The insides of the tubes on both forks are fine too.

Maybe a note to Bixxis to inspect (if they don't already do) them carefully from here on in if quality is waning. Fortunately there are other options like Columbus if this turns out to be an issue. Hopefully it was a rare anomaly without any further issues.

Already done after finding out it was a Falz. I know it's an anomaly for it to happen with any fork. But it's someone I can address it with so it's great to know about.

That's good yours are fine. Thanks for letting me know. I will have stock matte finish Falz forks in stock soon. Same with Columbus and more Enve forks. Same with small parts for the Bixxis frames.

IMO, the matte grey with the Italian flag bands goes really nice with the Ti...
Thanks again for being proactive.

A Tricolore band at the bottom of the legs is really nice looking. Simple and clean. Always a good choice. I hadn't decided on having anything painted yet. but that's a good choice. Thanks.

No worries. It's always good to be proactive though. It's wild that the Falz manufacturer put the QC label over the void. I just thought that was from another company that did that kind of thing.

BiXXis is on my very short list of future bikes to own. I've already a Peg MxxxxxO so it'll likely be the Ti Pathos.

With a Record Group and Shamal's. I just gotta save a lotta pennies...…...

The replacement for the damaged Prima. All ready to ship this week to the States for prep and building. Ordered March 11, finished May 11th. 2 months, pretty good for a custom geometry and finish frame. We were lucky to get it in before Doriano switched over to titanium frames in the jig.
