    Hey TiGoat. What are the diameters of the ST, TT, and DT on your Kish frame? I am in the process with Jim right now and am just trying to get a sense of scale. Thanks!

    Ti tubing is available in various grades including 6Al-4V and 3Al-2.5V, which are commonly used for bike frame contruction. Good luck finding a US builder to build you a frame with 6Al-4V, as this grade of tubing is extremely expensive and must be purchased in certain volumes, so most builders have stop using it for a few years now. Most builders are using the 3Al-2.5V favor nowadays both in straight gauge and butted configurations. This particulary frame has straight gauge tubing.
    Thanks,

    Exactly the same tube diameters as mine.

    What's your impression of the DT 240 hubs? And do they make any noise when coasting?

    dongringo: My DT 240s freehub is whisper quiet compared to my other Tune and Record hubs. For this set, I like them so far, but only time will tell if they can make a good impression on me for the long run. Cheers!
    Thanks,

    Along these same lines, could you advise on the head tube length?

    Does that Prologo saddle have a relief-channel? It was hard to tell from the website.

    Thanks for posting this. You clearly have your thoughts on bicycle design/building well sorted out.

    The HTL for this frame is 130 mm. It looks kind of short for 130 mm because of the massive diameter. The Prologo saddle shown does not have a center relief channel, as they did not have this feature for all their saddles last year. Thanks!
    Thanks,

    very nice SS kiwisimon! Both frames are similar in material and design but mine has water bottle mounts welded while yours has them riveted with cheesy rivnuts. Got to love the natural finish of Ti!
    Thanks,
