Upon examination, I believe I'll buy a pair for myself. They are that worthy, however, mine will sport Veloflex or Vittoria Corsa.

Eric,

You should try the Pirelli's. They are great tires, and super fast. I really like their wet weather tire. It is robust, grips well in the rain, and the weight penalty is not as bad as some others. They do run big however. On a 24 width rim, they measure out at 30.1MM.

Try em, you will like them....

That Gulf color-way combo always does it for me!

So sweet.

Is that a private labeled Control Tech ti handlebar? Have you ridden one and if so, what do you think?

Thanks for looking.

It is. Marco uses them frequently and they pair well with the Timania stem. They get them engraved with their logo.

I've been riding with one for over a year. I had Marco send me one with my Ti frame and was not happy at first. The diameter at the top of the bars was too small for my hands and quite annoying while climbing. I picked up some Bontrager IsoZone Gel padding, placed it where needed, re-taped, and I'm much happier. Other than that, the reach and drop were perfect for me. They are plenty stiff, and provide a nice matching option if you have a Ti frame, or are just tired of carbon options.

This seemed fitting here rather than the PSA thread. It's a bit of a gamble, and is most likely a scam, seeing as the seller has zero feedback, but perhaps someone in the New Jersey area could arrange for an in person handoff...

While I did not sell the frame, as it was before my time working with Legend, I know the seller personally. I emailed him this morning and the transaction is legit.

Incoming King for one of our own. More pics to follow.......less than 4 months out, and still the current turnaround. Not bad given our Pandemic......

Obviously being built with Campagnolo

Paint looks vaguely familar to me -- maybe because my Alliance graphics were inspired by the Legend below. Eric was so helpful in sending me additional photos from which I was able to work with Erik Rolf and Erik worked with Ollie at Dark Matter.

Marco's work is pretty darn amazing! Love the reversed out Campagnolo logo, the level TT and the oh-so-slightly dropped seatstays. And there is only one real choice for grouppos

Mine in the build/dial in phase similar to the Legend above:



The inspiration (post from this very thread almost three years ago to the day):

Thank you for the kind words!

You've inspired a bunch of us, as I've done something similar, as another Paceliner. The combination of bare Ti and a tad bit of paint is warranted in my book. This just came in today via DHL.
