A bit heartbroken to let this one go, but I appear to use my fixed more and more and this beast less and less.
Built in 2016 from what seemed to be a new US custom Titanium frameset from TST. An interesting object with a lightweight large Titanium frame but small 650c wheels. Visited Boston, San Francisco, Berkeley, Brussels, London, and the west of France.
The good: The welding is top notch. And a beautiful surprise will welcome you once you remove the rim tape of the rear wheel, showing the efforts put into the bike. Probably for a TT use originally, but built as a road bike, it became incredibly reactive. Good for urban KOMs, yada yada.
The bad: it's a 650c bike, so you don't have much choice of tyres above 23mm. The rims are wide enough, so confort is not an issue, but you won't be able to fit comfy 32mm tubeless tyres. Panaracer however makes 28mm 650c tyres that I haven't tested, worth checking.
Comes with Ritchey WCS headset, Ritchey WCS hubs, Velocity Aerohead 28h rims, and the original carbon fork. The front wheel got rebuilt in November (rim chipped by pothole) with a brand new Velocity A23 rim and Sapim D-light spokes. It comes with the amazing Schwalbe One tyres, lots of spare tubes, new SKF bearings for both wheels if needed, and probably a spare Continental GP tyre if I find it.
If someone wants to get the bike as is (Forza carbon handlebars, Uno stem, Fizik Arione Tri 2 saddle, carbon seatpost, Tektro brakes, Sram RED 2012 groupset black edition, and a Praxis Zayante crankset), you're welcome! The cabling got redone for the summer, smooth as new. I'll keep the spoke card and the pedals. I'll remove the 3M reflective tape if you don't like it. The bartape is 4 years old and a new one would be lovely.
£530 for frame+fork+wheelset.
£850 for the bike as is.
Edit: Happy to split and sell the groupset at £300 if anyone is interested (with Praxis or original SRAM crankset). Will wait until the frameset is sold however.
Collection in London preferred, but I can post otherwise.

Friend of the seller here. This bike is a fantastic ride, I would buy it if I had the space and use for it. Hope it provides as much happiness to its new owner as it did his current
Hmm, now I have to find out who you are. 🕵 Thanks!
Price drop £900.
I'd be interested in buying the full bike, but wondering whether it'd be right for my height, I'm 6'3. Would this bike be tall enough?
Thanks, hope all is going well.
I'm 188cm so I think should be fine for you! You're welcome to come and try it in E17.
Ugh, still have this bike in storage. Price down:
This is nice, I had my eye on one on eBay a while ago, a Mongoose TST one, but that was silly money.
I think this is too big for me though
It's quite a large frame indeed but the geometry is for 650c wheels. I believe it would fit 180-195cm tall people I guess?
I might come and have a look at this if that's alright? I'm in E10, so pretty close
Sure! Sending you a message now.
Moving to eBay!
