Limited run - bad ass paint - too big a cog - too small a ring - too much money

It's a titanium Phil Wood. At least to me that alone makes the bling factor off the hook. "Phil Wood bottom bracket with Phil Wood EBB insert custom drilled by Jeff Jones" Pretty cool.

I am really surprised they didn't use some Phil Wood hubs. That would make it :drool:

Not sure about that price though. Seems pretty high.

I think it is overpriced:

Ti frame from IF: $2600
Headbadge: $200 (congrats on buying a phil wood)
Fork: $600
Crank/BB $800
Rest of parts: $1100
Total $5300

Hmm, maybe I'm wrong...

I get that it's limited and all but is there really that much technology involced to warrant such a price tag??

what's up with the name change??...D
BMXman was already taken so I had to go with this one. I tried to bid on a new name on e-bay but some guy sniped me at the last moment. ;)

I am finding that it's a bit awkward for people ot pronounce the screenname when they meet me in person, or if I say it they do not recognize it because they don't know how it's pronounced. I end up having to describe my avatar before people realize who I am. This way I am using my real name and it describes that I am but one Mike amongst many.
