My Waltly gravel got stolen, and I couldn't stand a summer without a steel bike (so nice). PX have these on sale so ordered it, and some used parts, plus parts from the "good to have around" stock at home.

I have no "official weight" yet, will do it once it's fully complete. Still waiting on new brake lines, larger chainring, and a new lower headset piece.

Planet-X Spitfire Ti (~1550 g), Selcof carbon fork.
SRAM Force AXS brifters
SRAM Force AXS rear mech
Shimano Ultegra 12s 11-34 cassette and chain
Cane Creek Hellbender headset.

Sourced from my own stock :) :
Campagnolo Chorus carbon Ultra Torque crankset
Garbaruk 42t Oval
Zipp Service course stem and seatpost
Prime Doyenne bar and true weight weenie vulc tape (pending...)
Campagnolo Record brakes
Unknown 50mm carbon rims, on Powerway R36 hubs (traded for a security camera :thumbup: ). Corsa tires.

I was unsure about the size so went small och the frame might be a bit too small, as per the pretty high saddle, but I really like the ride. I wanted something very "racy", as I have a normal gravel bike etc. I'm very pleased with the ride for now! It's fun, agile and comfy as a ti-bike should be.

I'll look to swap the rims for something that can run tubeless, and carbon seatpost, maybe bar - but I really like the shape of this Prime bar.
