This is an amazing bike and a rare find. This is your chance to own a 
lightweight, responsive, comfortable, and durable titanium cyclocross 
frame without dropping $3000. The frame is a SVIR Cyclocross, size 
57, built by RVT in Colorado in 1998. All of the components 
are much newer, and none of them have excessive wear. The complete bike weighs 
under 18 lbs including pedals.  The frame is made of 6/4 titanium and weighs about 3.1 lbs.

The bike is still available if anyone's interested. I have all the parts to convert it to singlespeed if you're interested. Here's a current picture:
