I see what you mean, I prefer my Ti raw also, but I know not everybody agrees.
Indeed. Each to their own and all that. But I am of the thinking that if you are going to the expense of buying a frame material that is best shown in its raw state then painting it is superfluous.
The Enigma painted Ti frames I've seen in photos and IRL are excellent. But I prefer the raw look.
That is a self sustaining argument though and an opinion only, and as such is not worth any more than your initial "each to their own".
That has cross racer written all over it. Lush.
This one here made my jaw drop... As pretty much anything that the guys at Wittson put out
That is sweet.
Some stunning bikes on here. If only I could stop wasting my money and finally buy something as beautiful.
I second that, belated self-Christmas-present perhaps? Treat yourself!
Yeah, do it, buy a frame set and do it gradually, saves you a few quid and you then get the bike spec that suits you and your wallet
Just bought another bike last Autumn so it'll be a good while till I can convince the wife I need yet another one! I'll have to make do with perving over them on this thread but It'll come eventually though.
I think I'm gonna cry. That's a stunning bike.
Anyone have an opinion on the charge plug titanium frame? Have spotted it on sale at £799 , the complete bike sells at £2500 so i reckon I could build it up for far far less.
Just had a look. £799 at Triton Cycles right?
If so, it ticks all the right boxes for the price.
Double butted 3:2.5 AL titanium
Laser cut dropout
Disc brake specific
Compatible with larger volume tyres up to 42c
Seat clamp and headset included
Rack and mudguard mounts
It doesn't come with forks.
The rear disc brake mounts are on the chain stay so will be easy to add mudguards and pannier rack.
It looks rather industrial, in that I mean the frame looks like it has bigger tubes then normal. But that aint no bad thing. The graphics are crap (normal for Ti bikes) but are probably transfers so can be taken off.
In fact if they had a medium in stock I would be sorely tempted to buy for for a commuter/touring bike and make up myself.
Look out for bargain components to build it up with and yes you would have a bargain.
