RCUK Bikes Ángel García-Forcada's Crisp Titanium

I started to think about a titanium frame many months ago, as it was the only stuff that I had not tried (my other bike is steel Pegoretti). I ordered it to Darren Crisp, a builder from the United States who lives in Italy. It has resulted a comfy bike, with good absorption, almost as good as carbon, and very reliable. Perhaps not too light, but as I ought to shed some pounds from my waist that is not that important¡.

  • Specs:
  • Frame: Titanium 3Al/2.5V
  • Group: Campagnolo Record and Chorus
  • Saddle: an old Selle Italia Turbo, dating from the ’80s (it does not match but it is comfy)
  • Wheels: Campy Zonda
  • Stem and handlebars: Oval 700
  • Seatpost: a simple Kalloy Uno
