That's pretty enough to tempt me back onto a DF bike! Lovely.

I just really like the simplicity of it. Simple grafics and a single purpose.

I have always like the titianum colour as well.

Still harbouring evil thoughts at the moment.

Just sold my car, and the money is meant to be going in the bank ....... :twisted:

Nah, the bank'll just charge fees and it'll be whittled away. Buy the Ti frame.

In Australia? For the frame alone - about $5K.
In the States - a lot less.
