    You can get Ti forks but most of the bikes come with Carbon jobbies. Ti forks are much more expensive. So it's mainly to keep the price down on what is already a hefty purchase in most cases.
    I have been looking at Ti forks myself. Burls do a very nice set.

    I see what you mean, I prefer my Ti raw also, but I know not everybody agrees.

    Indeed. Each to their own and all that. But I am of the thinking that if you are going to the expense of buying a frame material that is best shown in its raw state then painting it is superfluous.

    The Enigma painted Ti frames I've seen in photos and IRL are excellent. But I prefer the raw look.

    That is a self sustaining argument though and an opinion only, and as such is not worth any more than your initial "each to their own".

    Some stunning bikes on here. If only I could stop wasting my money and finally buy something as beautiful.

    Yeah, do it, buy a frame set and do it gradually, saves you a few quid and you then get the bike spec that suits you and your wallet

    Just bought another bike last Autumn so it'll be a good while till I can convince the wife I need yet another one! I'll have to make do with perving over them on this thread but It'll come eventually though.

    Anyone have an opinion on the charge plug titanium frame? Have spotted it on sale at £799 , the complete bike sells at £2500 so i reckon I could build it up for far far less.
