    There’s far better Ti frames out there. and that’s coming from someone with a Ti obsession :0)

    Nope, I’ve trashed my Equilibrium frame 🙁
    So thinking of not getting the Ariel, putting 34s on the black bike, and getting a nice road frame.

    I do ride the road bike, I do ride the black bike. Not sure how much i’d ride the Ariel… I mean I got rid of the other big bike…I’ve even got a spare set of Flows with 2.4’s on for uplift days etc.

    spanner in the works today really…

    That actually sounds like a really sensible plan to me Si. Good call

    Anyone out there have an Equilibrium Ti ? What are your thoughts, is it enough lighter / comfier than the standard steel to justify the price ? Its an amazing looking frame.

    Cheers.

    Does sound like a good plan, your Santa Cruz is to die for.

    Not riden the genesis. But it’s a mass produced generic Ti frame built to order, nothing wrong with it at all but at £1400 it seems a little expensive when you can get a mass produced Ti frame from a well regarded manafacture (Van Nic) for £800 from Planet X. It’s not as if Genesis has any kudos, to demand a higher than normal price, Madison have huge buying power, good marketing though. They’ve certainly evolved from the Ridgeback days.

    mmmm, maybe true but I loved the Equilibrium, so Ti version will be same Geometry I like but lighter and comfier.

    Plus, sourcing it from 18bikes means I can always easily get support / warranty help etc if there are issues, thats a cost and hassle people don’t always consider.

    I’ve vowed to not order ever again from On-one 😉 not after sending two bikes back virtually un-ridden.

    Enigma are selling off some frames at the moment, that would be my pick. I like Genesis bikes but this one’s too much for what it is.

    I agree with cheers dave, engima have in your size in clearance a d they only charge £100 more than the genesis for a hand built in the UK custom TI than a generic Ti far frame from the Far East.

    mmmmm, yeh. They do look expensive compared to some of those others.

    Just get a steel one and save your money for something worth while.

    thats no fun.

    Depends what you spend it on.

    An expensive Ti frame must be one of the dullest purchases going.

    £1000 would get you a road riding holiday in the alps.

    It wouldn’t pay for the childcare while I was away though, Us encumbered people have to get or pleasures elsewhere 😉
