It looks great, Mindaugas. I like the image as a whole too. Seems well thought out. Is photography a hobby of yours?

Wow, that looks great! The wheels and the saddle match well and those creased tubes give it a rugged look that is unique. The contrasting black carbon/titanium tubes look great on this bike too. It turned out even better than I thought.

There is no shortage of bike makers and one has to differentiate itself and stand out among it all. This bike does that.

I wish this picture was taken by me It was the BLACKSMITH CYCLES guys who assembled the complete bike and took the picture.

I do take some of the pictures of our builds myself, but most of the time I work with a photographer. My old Canon is quite outdated and still carries a stock lens, so whenever I can I let the photographer to the job.

Having said that, I've taken this picture in Bristol during the BESPOKED show and I think it turned out really nice!

Cheers man! Such feedback means a lot to us! We're a small family business after all and being unique is our key objective so seeing people appreciate that is all that matters to us.

Mike and the rest of the crew at Blacksmith are fantastic. Some seriously cool bikes/parts/apparel and down to earth service - best bike shop in Toronto by a good margin. Look forward to seeing a Wittson in person at some point!

Do you guys do any commuting or touring type frames?

It’s also nice to see a fellow Lithuanian making sweet Ti frames!
