Spot on that Steve 😉

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! 😀

Bloody lovely Steve, that cabling looks tidy 😉

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)

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.
