What's in the stand...

It doesn't get any better than this. A fully custom Steve Potts titanium frame, 29" wheels, and Type II fork. Well, maybe if it had WTB rollercams, it might be better, but only marginally. Got this built up for a customer of Steve's who will be enjoying it in a few days on his vacation in the Northeast. When I first saw the fork color, it was one of those, um, ah, well...but it grew on me and it looks like the color was chosen to match the Kevlar strands woven into the brake lines and handlebar. Regardless, the color works on the bike. Without further adieu, a picture is worth a thousand words.










(What's playing: Kruder and Dorfmeister Definition on MPR's The Current, and VeloNews live updates from the tour - sure would be nice to see a Cancellara win to cap off the incredible tour CSC-Saxo has had - nope, a Quick-Step win. The boys in Morgan Hill will be happy.)

WOW. You really aren't helping my Ti jones much at all. ;) I think this is an "If you have to ask, it's too rich for your blood" kinda bike... ;)

Classic. Kinda like what a titanium 29"er should look like. (Although, I can't quite swallow that fork color.)

Someday I'd love to do a roller cam'ed 29"er. But I'd most likely have to do it in steel, as titanium is a bit rich for my blood.

G-T: I've got that exact project on tap. Fork's ready, frame just needs brake bosses brazed on and some paint. Oh, and a set of WTB rollercams.

jim g: I just acquired a ti bike that you might dig. Check it out next time you're in. Or if I get time to clean it up right, I'll be posting pics someday.
