    Decided to make it back into a Normal road bike as I did not like how the flat bar felt

    Here is a quick update, just waiting for a seatpost shim and a bit of time to finish. I'm loving the way the bike looks but it's the ride that matters so I'm hoping it all works . If I am unhappy with the flat bar set up It is an easy step to convert back into a full blown road bike albeit expensive (unless I find some cheap Force Doubletap levers) I also have a set of slightly wider carbon flat bars on the way as I'm finding the current set up slightly cramped.

    Here she is all finished, very happy with the result. Tried to keep her looking classier this time around. This leaves me with a bit of a dilemma as I now have 2 Ti road bikes although I could stick some crud guards on this bike and it could be my winter bike.

    Not taken her out yet but from memory the Titus is a bit softer than the Cube and more suited to the pot holed roads we have to endure. Both bikes weigh approx the same and if I am honest I would be hard pressed to chose my favourite .
    Want to try some TT next year so I may try to swap the Titus for a TT bike perhaps although I may just buy one of them Dura-ace equipped Exocets that Planet X have on offer.
