Titanium gravel bike

This is the second full titanium build, and a lot was learnt after the first. I think this might be my favourite bike ever.

Everything was pretty much made in house except for the drop-outs this time, I had a pair of Paragon Machine works DOs that were bought for a frame conversion but never used, I like making all of my own stuff but these allowed the use of Reynolds S bend chain stays for clearance - and they're of seriously nice quality.

As with Ti31 I've used a custom seat-post in Ti using Hope hardware. We also have a custom made Ti seat binder and custom Ti top cap and spacers all made and anodised here. Forks are Columbus Futura Gravel painted with a metallic fade.

Completed with sensible mix of robust Hope components and  a Ratio Technology conversion to run SRAM Eagle gearing with SRAM road shifters to operate a 1X12 system.
