Listmembers,

Looking at these CLB calipers, apparently artifacts of early titaniomania (timeline appropriate?)

http://ebay.com/<blah>

makes me wonder if anyone remembers these or any other large component bits- I'm thinking cranks, major derailleur bits (other than bolts), pedals beside Zeus 2000s, brakelevers etc made of Ti alloy from the CR relevant period? Or did poor quality '70s CP Ti as used by Campagnolo and others kill the notion?

And how long did CLB hang on? I can't remember seeing them on new bikes post 1980 at the latest or so.
