Because of the titanium color .99.5 percent of my bike is black these days I am still bummed out that Thompson never made a pivotal seatpost .

I really can't think off too many parts i trust being Ti. Axles and bolts maybe? Cranks would potentially be next on the list but've never tried a set

Does anyone use the TI FEC female version? It's 3/8 correct - best way to get it to work with a 14mm frame?

I have 3/8 ti but they sell 14mm. Any decent welder can burr your dropouts to fit either size axle. I had it done for $30.

I didn't know they sold a 14mm female, thought they were all 3/8 and the male version is 14mm.

You may we'll be right about the male/ female thing.
