Here is my new toy! Hope you like it!
not overly nice
I hope that you are an actual female !
I like the silver theme though (stem & seatpost) but the bar ends are gopping.
Very blingy, but the overall package doesn't do it for me I'm afraid.
WOW... now that is pretty sweet. What brakes are those?
loose the bar ends and tone down the pink and you have a very nice bike
Crikey nice bike but pink and red!?
very perty.bet that cost a few bob.£2500?
Jxl, they are 08 Mono Minis.
mmm not one for me sorry but it could be worse you could have another top tube
Bet your pleased with it though, hope it rides well
very nice! I love the whole shiny look! it attracts attention!
it's a bit like mine, in a sort of not quite but sort of all the same!
A few parts are carried over from the old Ti, cassette, rear mech, bb and crank arms/spider. The rest is new and would have cost all new 3.5-3.7k. Approx £500 was already there.
Not the lightest build though, the tyres and forks are quite heavy. It comes in @ less than 26lbs, but it rides ace and will not fall to bits!
Nice - What length is that stem?
Looks good. Loving the silver Thomson kit - sets the ti off a treat.
80mm stem, and i nearly had black instead of silver, but i remember when i looked at gavgas ti 456, silver was the only way to go.
Like the silver and pink theme - it's very blingy. Lose the bar ends though.
Didn't think the Ti456 was meant to be uber light, just uber good.
very nice frame..... I want one!!!
Bar ends on risers? Call the fashion police....
It certainly is UBER GOOD!!!
And why is everone going on about bar ends?? they obviously have not used them before!!!!
I've used them and enjoy their benefits - however, I could never put them on risers.
Very nice but take the bar ends off.
What size and how tall are you?
Not a colour choice I would set out to build myself (I just wouldn't think of it), but I think it looks great.
It is a 16" 410mm seat post, 80mm stem, and im 5`10". When you drop the seat to go down it feels like a BMX, but longer!
FAB it is!!!!!
And i can appreiciate not everyone likes pink!!!
Only two things that jar for me...
Bar ends on risers: I've never needed them since going over to risers twelve years ago, and the layback seatpost. Just can't see the need if the frame is sized appropriately. I'm 5'11", I ride 18" Inbreds with 70mm stems and inline posts and my riding position is spot-on. Whatever. It is a very pretty bike, and overall the spec is spot on. I particularly like the Middleburns, very classy. And X0. Sweet. Good weight, too, just right for an all-day bike, without being too risky on really rocky stuff. Nice.
Good choice of frame, nice kit.......now go bash it up around some trails and get it all scratched and muddy like its supposed to be.
"built to go fast" rememeber
and please bin the bar ends......those bendy bits it the middle of your risers mean you dont need them.
Agree with CountZero... make a nice bike look shocking.
It has allready been out and got v.muddy etc.....and it does go fast.
Nice, looks really well put together...Love the stem. Just two slip-up's that need addressing. As already mentioned, bar ends need to go.. but the biggest sin is that nasty bent seatpost. WHY???? Please....! somebody sue Thompson for producing such an offensive item.
well, i love it. Ok, the bar ends don't look great... Aut the rise in a riser doesn't negate car ends, its generally the width. I, personally, swear by bar ends, and have had them on risers before. My new bike doesn't have them and i much prefer it with ends on... I find climbing better.
That looks lovely and agree with what Mamadirt and count zero say, but very pretty though!
bar-ends aside, that's one of the nicest hardtails I've seen on here. excellent attention to detail. happy riding!
bar ends are functional rather than asthetic, anyone who objects to them on a looks basis, well, they need to ride up hills more!
