Why didn't you have this for sale before I got my S&S frame made up! Otherwise I would have had this, unfortunately I don't need ,two.

Nice looking bike and a great price

What sort of bike box do you use? Or does it come into its own when you want to put it in a car boot?

You can get a hard or soft backpack case. Look at SJS site.
Many people use a cut down and braced bike box.
Look at bicycle touring pro YouTube.
Yes it's good for boots of cars because it can be packed with mudguards on, so always ready.
The obvious thing,if you make a box, make sure it fits airport regs. otherwise you pay.

The provenance of titanium is very important. Who is this frame made by and what grade is it?

Last year I was looking for an S&S frame, I'd have had it, at this price, it's a bargain. I paid more for my custom frame from XACD.

Try getting one from a UK frame builder, it'd be £2,500 plus for an S&S frame, £1800 for a non coupled frame.

Still I'm more than happy with the quality of the build on my XACD frameset

Astonished it's still for sale tbh. Seems a conspicuous bargain.

Problem may be, I don't want to post. Pick up preferred.

You really need someone close to Oxford.
