Clark Kent - they were great bikes. Best TI welds I've ever seen. Poor guy was taken down in a heap of molten titanium by :emond BIkes when they suddenly pulled out of their business deal and went with Trek and those robot built 853 frames.

Can you say net 190?

Regarding Dale's comment about all Ti looking the same: WIth great respect, I have to disagree. In my business I eat colors and hues for breakfast. There are differences! You gotta believe me. Just look at a Titus against a Holland against a Ibis - all Ancotec - and they all look different, especially Scott Nichol's bikes.

A question regarding Titan's being anodized: If not for coloring, why would anybody anodize titanium? It doesn't require atmospheric protection. Personally, I don't care for colored anodizing of ti that was so hot a few years back because it tends to go flat (looses it's luster) and it scuffs too easily, which is why I know Moots stopped doing it.
