My Ti bike has the same geometry as my steel bike but the lighter weight makes them feel pretty different. I still need to round up a narrow/wide chainring to be able to trust this geared bike.

 Two machines that have made work so much easier. The Baleigh manual bender makes repeatable bends and can bend very heavy duty tubes as well. 

This little mill has two important features for coping. The first is an "R8" type spindle which uses collets that easily enable the use of 3/4" hole saw arbors. The second important feature is a motor with infinitely adjustable RPMs.
