Road Bike Airborne Zeppelin 58cm frame with plus...
If you desire a work of art in Titanium as a road bike along with a bunch of first class components, then this is the bike for you. (Images speak for themselves of the condition of what is offered here). At this price its a steal for a Titanium frame with parts. A new "GOOD" frame will set you back anywhere between $2200 and $3000 plus the cost of all the parts offered here!
I have never liked the looks of the other brands, too simplistic with boring straight pipes. In this frame offered, pay attention to the pictures and see how the tubes display an elaborate shape, being thicker or thinner with curbs as opposed to one straight pipe. I have always appreciated the art work involved in making these bikes.
A meticulous inspection of what is being offered here is most welcomed! NOTE: The Look Stem will not be included in the sale.

About Titanium: Titanium (also called "ti") is one of the longest lasting, strongest, and most expensive frame materials. Some cyclists and experts feel that it combines the best characteristics of all the other frame materials. It rivals aluminum in weight, is as comfortable as steel and it has a sprightly ride and electric handling that many riders swear by. The frames feel "alive," as if each pedal stroke gets a boost from an inherent springiness in the frame.
Titanium is hard on metalworking tools, requires expensive titanium welding rod and must be joined carefully in a controlled environment. Consequently, titanium frames are very expensive to produce, which explains their high purchase price.
The two common types of titanium are 3Al/2.5V and 6Al/4V. These designations refer to the amount of aluminum (Al) and vanadium (V) alloys used in the titanium. 6Al/4V is more expensive, lighter, harder to machine and stronger. But both titanium alloys are excellent; they may even be combined in a frame.
