    Lovely looking frame and a tasteful colour and decals - it should look great built up. Any reason behind the choice to have it painted? I for one am glad to see a ti build with some colour behind it rather than being yet another drab grey.

    Yeah it's really nice, in the Sierra Nevada region (more pics here) around the high villages and valley towns. This build is partly cheap just to get a feel of what I want to ride around here, there's plenty of trails and mountain bike routes too but I wanted to start on the nice roads (which happen to require passing through some rough roads first). So for now I'm testing the waters but I may double up with something for the trails only, or eventually go with something more cyclocross like if the need arises.

    Finished my functional build for southern Spain, aim is to be cheap (parts-bin), somewhat robust and somewhat suitable to get around the mountains, a mix of lovely new EU funded tarmac and a lot of far rougher roads too. Seems to work ok so far.

    Look like Super Aeros, 32 holes, they're not NJS

    Is there or will there be a way to alter the style a little, tighten it up a little and bring the font size down a little. As it is there's so much white space and such a large font there's barely anything on my screen at a time. It is otherwise nice but it feels like the actual content is just that little bit harder to actually view, such scrolling, much page turning.

    Gaston it was already perfect, why the changing?

    I've got the tubus QR adapter for my bike that lacks mounting eyelets but I'm a little worried about mounting on an old road frame with horizontal dropouts and having the wheel slip - I'm not sure how solid this QR is, it's an external cam model and looks a little plasticy.

    Are there any 200mm long steel internal cam QRs available out there, my search came up with nothing, as it is I'm gonna tighten this thing up tighter then any QR before it and take it for a test.

    The bar isn't actually marked but it looks to me most like a 3TTT Grand Prix.
