    Good luck you fukrs, youre gonna need it when the ban(k)hammer comes to town. Which is very soon.

    Russia's been about ready to kick our butts for about 50 years ... it takes more than a few natural resources and a second rate strong man to do that.

    We have a resilient system that's weathered much worse; anyone betting against the USA will lose. I do really like your classical music however - almost as good as the Germans.

    Having natural resources is one thing, managing them correctly is another. That is where Russia falls down. Stuffing the $$$ into a foreign bank account does not a productive country make...just saying.

    You don't want to be a developing country with lots of natural resources, believe it or not.

    I doubt they have the money to maintain their stockpile; they'll just blow up on the launchpad. Unless they've all been sold to Iran or North Korea.

    WTF .... OVER 2 months ....

    Wow .... over 2 months to get the frame fixed? Dimitry is posting pictures like a crazy Russian on his Triton board, but makes a customer wait this long to fix a buildr mistake?

    Dimitry seems to be a great marketer, but him and his buddies seem to know little about frame design.

    Odd crap he is trying to take fabrication in house and makes this mistake. Then screws up by not trying to fix asap. Instead he post pictures galore of his greatest and next project.... pure maketing ....

    RapidBikes in Russia was who he use to use .... they seem to have more experience and weld awasome welds ... plus they are lots cheaper than Triton .... food for thought

    Hey D, and you APPROVED the frame they built .... BTW... last time I chatted with them they charged $600-700 for a frame ...
    their website is updated too .... Titanium bicycle frames and components production

    Hmmm .... and you were telling your customers you had a tubing shortage ... LOL ... Red Curtain deception .... alive and kicking at Triton!

    No Dimitry, you know all, I hope you ship your customer the frame DHL overnight ... instead of bragging about a 100 plus Euro cab ride whilst traveling Italy.
    You cannot go against nature, because when you do, its part of nature too.

    The frames are awesome as long as you look after the process and check every little detail.
    Errors may happen though.

    And Rapid really had the tubing shortage for a few months.
    And that was one of the reasons I decided to switch to my shop completely.
    I had to get some of the tubing before their suppliers delivered it. And in the end we just built those long awaited frames at a new shop.

With the larger rear cogs (went from 11-28 to 11-34) I really have no need for the granny ring, so I might convert it to 1x9 next.

    It's pretty much just a goof-around bike now. I have flat pedals on it and use it for casual rides with the family or riding around the driveway with my son or at the pump track.
    Man, you took off the beautiful vintage XTR rear derailleur and replaced it with SRAM?


    Also, this thread is a good example of why xenophobia needs to be more prevalent. If we did not bother with other countries so much it would not exist.
