Let's see your Titanium builds!

Ti builds are a rare breed these days but I know there are several lurking in this forum!

Here’s my custom Burls Ti (designed in the UK, built in Russia by ex-Submarine Ti engineers of “Colnago Titanio” fame!).

It’s my Gran Fondo bike, 7.4kg all in, with gearing to get up even the 30% Fred Whitton climbs - via possibly the only SL-K Light 46-30 crankset in the world!

Nice one, @Darkgerbil :+1:

I also like Titanium for combining some bling with some robustness for bikepacking affairs and other shenanigans. :slight_smile:

That’s my No. 22 Bicycles Drifter I use for Bikepacking races and Gravel events.

This is mine, a 2011 Lynskey Cooper, that I bought used exactly last New Year’s day via Facebook market. Totally love this bike. Simple and easy to work on.

That jazzy front end is fantastic! The opposite of my monochrome approach!

Colnago CT1 (titanium main triangle, carbon rear and fork), Campy Record 10, Deda superergo carbon bars, Campy Eurus wheels. Built it up in 2001. Still rides like a dream. Raced it at Ironman Chattanooga in '18, passed sooooo many tri bikes

Wow! I don’t believe it! This is exactly the Colnago that I was referring to, built in Russia in 2000/2001 by the same guys that made my Burls frame in 2014, that’s amazing! Superb bike too!

What??? My beautiful Italian bike was built in Russia??? I’m crushed. Interesting, though.

There are some beautiful machines on here. Here’s mine a Moots MX RSL.


Here she is making bedroom eyes at me.

I’ve found myself only riding this bike for every ride. Anyone else notice that they’ve abandoned their other bikes?

Had this a while and really enjoy the ride. This pics a bit old and have since got a matching front wheel. It’s a 2002 originally built up with Dura Ace 7700 and now it’s mostly 9000, except for the shifters and rear-D which is 9100 for improved shifting and larger capacity.

Just built this a couple of months ago for my long bike-packing trips. Mixed-up gravel/TT geometry. The frame is a Bossi Grit, a newish Australian brand. 1x, dynamo hub and lighting, 38mm tyres.

My Triton ‘Monster Munch’. Built it for SRMR a few years ago but it’s soooo good I ride it on the road as well and completed TCR on it last summer.
