    Got word yesterday from Steve that my Ti GP went to Fedex ("just finished your decals, looking for the Pledge can and it will go out yet today"); the Fedex site shows delivery for Tuesday. Parts are laid out, tools are in order.... Is it Tuesday yet?????

    I have no choice "(but to wait...:))

    Did you get any help on posting pictures of your new piggy? I'll need to figure out how to do that to.

    If you have a Mudpig, please post pictures. I have only seen one, and it is sitting in my sunroom living the retired life of a racer.

    Here are a few pics of my Strada Bianca with Max tubing.. Weighs in at 17.5 lbs and stiff as hell which is a good thing because I'm no light weight! http://www.flickr.com/photos/mosovic...in/photostream

    Sorry guys, I can't for the life of me figure out how to post a damn picture!! Any tips?

    In Flickr, navigate to the pic you want, then the arrow below:

    You want the BBCode, size Medium. Once you have that, just paste what you've copied in. No need for any more code.

    It's an ENVE fork. I love it.. Headed out this morning to lead a 40 mile ride.. I can't believe how light it is.. CRAZY!! It's full Dura Ace although I'm thinking of going to SRAM, with a TA 51x38 up front.. [IMG]

    Ah ... short reach fork and brakes on a Strada Bianca. That's different. Looks like it has plenty of clearance for 700x27's or so. Love the classic stripes on the seat tube. Enjoy!

    They are Specialized tires that say 23/25, but I swear they are wider than my 28 continental touring tires.. Plenty of room for sure.. I really love it, especially on the chip and seal today.. Everyone was saying, "slow down, this road is really bumpy".. I had a smile on my face as I put the hammer down and upped the pace!!

    Mine came in at 1280 grams (2.82 lbs) in a small size (51.9cm top tube).

    It's Tuesday! The Fedex man made me very happy today. Wow. Just Wow. I got a few bits put on my new ti Gran Paridiso this evening, but am flying out tomorrow a.m. so final assembly and pics will have to wait until the weekend. (I know, no pics, it didn't happen.)

    Frame (straight gauge) is 1461g in a largish size (ST center to top is 575mm, virtual TT is 585mm 6 degree slope,HT 194mm). Uncut Edge 2.0 (yes, Edge graphics vs Enve graphics) is 375g.

    Wow. And I haven't even ridden it yet!

    interesting to see the weight comparison between the butted and straight gauge tubes--even with the substantial difference in frame size, it's not even 200 grams. For some reason, I expected it to be more.

    For those more knowledgeable than I, is there a noticeable difference in durability between the two? I guess it would depend how aggressive and short the butting is...

    For me, the use of FeatherTech tubing is not so much about the weight. With the FT we often, but not always, use larger diameter tubes which will partially offset the weight loss. But the bigger diameter tubes give us a stiffer frame in torsion while the thinner walls gives a smoother ride over the rough stuff. It's not a huge difference but I do think it can be felt.

    The only down-side to the thinner walls is that the tubes are slightly more susceptible to denting but there won't be any difference in lifespan barring anything catastrophic as titanium is forever, for better or worse. And we do warranty all our frames for life.
