Versatile, do-it-all frame that's nigh indestructible.
This was to be my winter bike to allow larger, more robust tires and take the salt grime of Chicago streets and bike paths. Plus, I have always wanted a Titanium frame. I have only routed 35mm tires (easily) though LiteSpeed docs say 40mm is possible.
It is a cleverly designed frame that has removable cable shift cable mounts on the head tube. I removed them as I would be running Di2 and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to route internal e-tube wires.
The bonus is the amount of additional riding now made available to me in the form of these gravel adventures (yay!). I plan on taking this out to Colorado as their gravel scene has been maturing for a while now.
Of course, no I am mounting all sorts of Ti components to round out the build...the gift the keeps on giving (and taking). )
