I've had an itch to build a Ti bike for a while.I managed to bag a Lynskey R480 Disc frame-set in the end of season sale so I've started scratching that itch:becool:

I mulled over whether or not to go disc,I have a road bike will calliper brakes and a CX bike with mechanical discs,but eventually went for disc as that seems to be the road the industry is heading down.Beautifully crafted frame.Not sure I'd have paid full price but it is nice:okay: Plan is SRAM E-tap groupset/brakes and talking to a couple of local wheel builders(Zed in Barnsley,HED is Sheffield) to see what I can get.
Not going to be cheap but hopefully this will be my last proper build and I'll just replace worn consumables over the next few years.

That's a very smart frame indeed.

Waiting on arrival of integrated bars/stem.Was going to go E-tap but a friend has bought a bke with full Di2/discs that he only wants for the frame/fork.Offered me the Di2 groupset/brakes for £700....almost 1/3 price of new E-tap.....it's a no brainer.
It will be after Xmas now before I start the build.

Brooks C17 Cambium saddle ordered.Going to decide on either Ti or Carbon seatpost over the next couple of days but edging towards Carbon to match the bars:okay:
Saddle is brown so will be ordering brown Brooks Cambium bar-tape to add a retro-touch to an otherwise modern build:becool:
