    Thanks folks. Out again tomorrow.

    One small point that I love – the finish is brushed metal. This is fine as ti is completely impervious to all water, including salt water. With the unpainted finish, any small scratches can be removed with a piece of Scotchbrite pad being rubbed with the brush marks. I tested this under the seat clamp – and it works! 😀

    In a word NICE , for me the beauty of a Ti bike is the finish and colour . its will never go out of fashion and should age well if looked after .

    ive notice that Enigma will paint your shiny new Ti bike in virtually any colour , why anyone would do this is hard to see 😕

    I saw the results of their painting and they do a great job, not just in ti but steel as well.

    Whilst I agree about the bare metal of ti being the most desirable, perhaps painting it would be a good disguise as a steel frame … ? A Reynolds 501 decal set may complete the deception. 8)

    Well done.

    Money well spent.

    I think leaving it in plain brushed Ti was a good call.

    I hope you’ve got some high-tech clothing to wear when you’re on it.

    You can’t ride a bike like that dressed by Anquetil Boutique.

    Bit more modern clothing than that, despite the age.
