    I'm at N+1 = 7 right now and absolutely must sell one before I can do anything. Then I'd also have to sell my current gravel bike, and my SO isn't going to understand that since it's pretty new. "But just look at it!" would be my only defense. It would be a definite upgrade to the Masi.

    I'm both jealous and relieved that I'm too short to fit this frame. I've never ridden Ti, and if you get the Hab I'll be very curious about your thoughts on the ride of that Ti frame vs your aluminum and carbon machines. What are your tentative plans for the N+1?

    I'd probably stick to 10-speed, maybe Tiagra with an 11-34. But for 11-speed conversion I'm more familiar with the idea of modifying the cassette, as seen in this video (jump to 3:04):

    Tassles. Lots of tassles. And shredding some gnar. I will likely shred all the gnar.

    But, more seriously, the fun in building a bike is doing all of the reading/researching. Round these parts, you can usually just post, "I'm building a bike" and then let the techies discuss hundreds of possibilities.

    I'll take it.

    I'm buying it out of general principle. And I rode home with Ian who said he'd never speak to me again if I didn't buy it.

    PLEASE BUY IT!



    Jokes aside, I didn't catch your post. You clearly have first dibs. And, hozn deserves a pound of my finest home roasted coffee for being a gentlemen of extraordinary deals (if he's at all into coffee).

    Whoah!!! I don't know if I said that! I just had forgotten you were also freakishly tall like Judd! When you stepped off your bike yesterday to help me out out a lightbulb went off! Plus you mentioned you had no bikes made out of titanium YET!

    I might have embellished your comments to bolster my motivation

    It sounded like something Ian would say. Bonus points for believability.
