damn they look good with the hidden brakes. almost look's like it's half built. :lol:

out of interest, do you have short legs and a long torso? seat just looks low but far back.

Yes, fairly short legs (have a wee bit of Asian blood in me). Also, the frame itself is not as compact as you'd find on Trek or Giant hence the appearance of the seat-post being fairly short.
My Madone for example, has the appearance of having a very tall seat post even though it ends up the same height.

Makes sense ?

QV nope, Chain stay develops crack after the Berry Audax 2 weeks ago. Frame in now back to China and under major rehabilitation :cry: There other China Ti's that I've heard that develops crack in that same area. XACD is fixing it for free but duh, hassle of shipping it back to them plus you have no bike for at least 3-4 weeks.


That seriously sucks mate. :( Whereabouts on the ride did the damage happen?

Mine;

Saddle angle looks crazy there, but it's just an odd perspective, it's slightly nose down, but looks like its kamikaze in the photo!

Pretty standard, rotor chain catcher, sram Garmin mount, sram red 10 speed, zipp 303s.

Front light mount is still attached to the bars and the tape is for the rear light to stop the seat post being marked.

I'm a 54-55-56, so you're outta luck Jase.

And FWIW, you'll have to pry my Moots from my cold, dead hands!

I have a new front wheel after my encounter with the 'Roo, and a set of C35's on the way... That's an excuse for more ti-porn right?

The definition of porn is that no level of consumption is ever enough :idea: Therefore, you barely need any excuse at all.

TLDR - WE WANTS MAW TI PICS.

My first ever road bike arrived this morning. Cell Akuna 1.1
Thanks to all the forum members I've spoken to who helped me make the decision.

Nice bike.
Please tweak the handlebar a bit. That will hurt your arms :D

You'll need an allen key and loosen the allen key bolts on the head stem loose enough for you to twist the handlebars upward enough for your hands to comfortably grip the hoods.

nice pickup! but as above, you'll probably want the tops of the bars to be about level with the ground to start off with. maybe even angled up slightly.

Try experimenting with the height of the hoods, and use a tape measure to check the distance to the ground. Then, once you're happy, if you need to rotate the bars back down to feel comfy in the drops, you know how far to adjust the hoods back up. Your position on the hoods and in the drops is independent, so don't feel like you have to accept how Cell set it up for you forever ;) (I personally find having the hoods up a little bit to be very comfy, but I do not like the drops to be rolled up with them.)

Is it just me, or have you raised your stem and shallowed out the drops of your bars?

stem is in the same spot, i just cut the excess steerer from above it. i also changed the top bearing cap from a tapered one to the flat one shown as it was rubbing on the frame. that might give the impression it's raised...
bars are shallower though, i hated the anatomic shape.
