    Ti-frames are a big question mark. I have a few friends that ride them. One is a stiff rocket ship SS and the other one was flexy and broke 2-3 times. Itís spent more time getting shipped back in a box more than he has riden it.
    Sounds like you need my Reeb lol

    Deano how do you feel about carbon bars/seat posts? Worth the extra coin or no?

    No experience with anything carbon and done some reading. Donít care about weight really curious more on the ride that some say is better. Talked with someone the other day who has carbon nextie wheels he says he regrets buying by how stiff they are. I donít know if I could tell the difference.

    Itís hard to say. I think there is a dampening plus to carbon bars. Seatpost for me is just shedding weight.
    I donít know why the guy didnít like the carbon wheel because of stiffness because thatís the only reason to buy them. Thereís alum wheels out there with the same weight. I bought a brand new set of I9ís a few years ago and thatís where my money would. Towards a wheel set, that the biggest smiles for miles purchase you can make. Like I said those Wide Lightningís are hard to beat, I donít plan on dropping a grand on i9ís anymore, other wheels have closed the gap on them.

    Any recommendations on knee and elbow pads? Despite riding for 20 years or whatever, in 2017 I fell twice and royally ruined my knee...both times. Basically put me out for half of the year for riding. I'd rather be made fun of for wearing extra gear instead of limping around for 6 months. I got about $75 worth of amazon gift cards for christmas, so I'm willing to spend the money for quality.

    Dang, how did you fall? Did you change setup or front tires?

    haha, thats why i took the pic, it was added by a biker. If you have never ridden FATS, this section of Brown Wave feels like you could rollerblade it haha.
