    Baum Orbis- Titanium Road Disc

    This is one sweet machine. It's expensive as all get out though.

    Baums were never cheap...but $11k and no replaceable RD hanger? Least it looks like the dropout and hanger are all one bit of metal.

    I am familiar with what Baum's typically cost (the Coretto anyway) and this is a lot more. That's the AUD price btw. It's almost $9000 U.S.

    I was worried about not having a replaceable RD with my Lynskey until I received the bike and actually inspected the hanger and dropout. It's really not a concern. The hanger is at least 1/2 inch thick of 6-4 ti. If you look, dropout and hanger can be replaced by welding in a new piece.
