    Had another great ride with my roadie today. Smooth as butta.

    I remembered your request and told the Santini manager that I had XL customers.
    She said they offer up to XXXXL wear so looks like no problem.
    I will send you a scan of the sizing table.

    While the managing part of Triton Bikes was in Italy, the creative part was creating

    Nikolay is machining a 80mm radius tube bender for 19mm tubes that will be used on fat bikes and 29ers with short stays.





    We have found proper black anodized M2 alien bolts for the Triton star headbadges.
    Stainless steel bolts are on their way too.





    Paragon sent us DT Swiss 142x12 compatible flanged dropouts and Nikolay machined dummy axle for a jig for this standard. This week we will be building a frame based on these dropouts.





    Happy customer! A bass guitari player from a Moscow based rock group got himself a large Triton fixed gear frame



    Unpacked the Dedacciai double butted CrMo tubing (0.8/0.5/0.8mm).
    This tubeset is designed for a 29er frame.
    I also have a tubeset for a classic road bike frame.

    Please quote me if you are interested in a steel frame. We can make you the one with this tubing and the price will be lower compared to future steel frames



    Almost finished our first standard frame. Classic XC 29er.
    Triton Valit
    - Paragon Post Mount disc brake mount!
    - Only 1524 grams in size 18"
    - Will take up to 2.2" tire
    - Classic 1 1/8" headtube and 73mm BSA BB shell
    - No mounts for fenders and rack

    Will add up decals and headbadge and post up the completed frame.
    This frame may be taken by a local customer. However if he does not take it, I will put it for sale. Next day shipping to any place in the world.

    Paragon road bike brake bridge





    Mill center finder

    I posted a while ago that we had a video team from extreme sports oriented website 360flip.ru making video about Triton and taking interview with me.

    So here is the video below! It was done as an interview and I have never been interviewed before haha It's in Russian anyway, but you will be able to see some production moments there.

    Saturday at Triton was good.

    Our customer from the US came to the Triton shop to check out his roadie frame



    He also brought the parts for a build and I started building the bike





    Will share nice photos once it's fully built.
    More road bikes to come!

    Thanks,

    I'm currently developing BikeCAD madness as I try to work out a nice Ti 29er. Triton is currently at the top of my list for builders & I'm just working out how soon I can afford to put in an order

    I'm loving the high quality of the work that I've seen on here so far. The attention to detail, combined with Dmitry's enthusiasm for his product & customer communication has absolutely sold me on this brand

    I realise it'll probably be a long wait, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.

    Please don't put the prices up anytime soon Dmitry

    ^^ In the world of customs, waiting for Triton is not long at all. I once waited 9 months for a surfboard...waiting 6 months for a custom Ti frame seems extremely fast to me.

    Don't hesitate.

    Friday night here.
    Time for some Work in Progress media!

    29 photos this time.

    So we finished another tube bender. 80mm radius, for 19mm tubes.
    This will be helpful for fatbikes' seat stays and light 29er frames' chainstays.

    Bender being machine. The cutter is 19mm round shape.



    Done! Installed on the Anvil Bikes Bending Rodriguez base



    Smooth bending up to 90 degrees




    Someone will notice his last name on the headtube. 29er frame in progress



    5 front triangles mitered, seat tube inserts welded in
    Waiting for the rear ends



    The road bike waiting for some parts to be installed and set up



    One of our upcoming frames is a 29er with bent seat tube and top tube. We used to bend before at an old shop but here at our new shop don't have a bender for large tubes. So we had to make one.

    We bought a HUGE chuck of steel at the local port.
    It is ugly, it's just raw steel. 60 KILO of steel. Heavy.

    iPhone for size comparison



    Our lathe operator Nikolay is machining holders to install that steel chuck on a lathe



    Aligning the holder



    Four people need to load that thing on a lathe. It looks like a wheel from Flinstones' cars



    First cutting cycles



    A few minutes later it starts to shine.
    It's good steel and we plan to buy more of those

    Huge bender story to be continued..




    Sasha installed Paragon flanged DT Swiss 142x12mm dropouts on a dummy axle we made last week. I asked him to smile for MTBR




    29er frame for a Polish customer in progress. It will take wide tires.





    We machined simple centering tools to fasten the alignment process. We introduce new tooling and try to tune every aspect which results in quicker frames turnover with more precision.

    Centering the chainstay mitering fixture with the milling machine



    Chainstays ready to be mitered for BB shell



    Centering seatstay mitering fixture with a vertical mile



    Seat stays mitered!



    Chainstays installed on a jig, attached to the front triangle



    29er frame in a jig



    29er frame tacked



    Checked crankset clearance with the XT 3x10



    Machined our own hourglass type rack mounts for a customer who bought Triton Valit 29er (see previous work in progress).
    Which means we just sold our first standard frame and we plan to build more of those!



    PostMount checked with the real brake. Enough space to weld on rack mounts.






    More to follow next week!

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    I want one of these bad.

    Race 29er with an emphasis on stiffness over weight. Raw discolored welds and unfinished tubes. Based around my vassagos geo, but with a 1cm taller seat tube, 1cm more ETT, 1 1/5 head tube, paragon sliders, and 2.4 clearance. Ohhhhh Yeaaaaaaahhhhh...

    Hi everybody!

    Here is the new batch of photos that I took during construction.

    We have had a set of precise seat tube reamers custom made for us at a tooling shop in Ukraine.





    Triton Valit 29er
    It got its customer within a couple days since I said it was for sale. The customer asked us to add fender and rack mounts. We did so.
    Reaming with the new tools in action



    Triton Valit 29er for our customer Dmitry is ready for shipment to Saint Petersburg.





    The customer also requested us to make a suiting seat post. We shall design our own saddle clamp mechanism.
    Meanwhile we are using traditional mechanism



    31.6mm x 400mm





    Heavy duty 29er frame for s customer from Czech Republic

    Almost finished by now





    You remember that large bender we were making?
    Here are more photos of the process





    Designed for 32mm tubes and has a tiny bit of extra space



    Almost done!



    Good news!
    My dad finally left his previous job and joined Triton!
    WOOOHOOO! I am so happy
    It took us a bit of a time to train him.
    He is now into mitering tubes on a mill, hand brushing, packing and shipping.
    So Sasha has more time to weld. Which means we are getting faster!



    A bit of candid camera








    Reaming






    29er frame checked and aligned



    Seat tube inserts machined for 31.6 and 27.2mm posts.



    Smooth




    Made a bike hanger



    Out of the plotter




    We love it here




    More to follow!

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    Nice with family business...

    ... snow just dumped here, can't wait to get that 29x3.0 "snowbike" in production! So far the good old 2.4 works fine but then I happened to try a Moonlander on this ride, that was fun:

    Light on the handlebar, for tuesday evening late rides:

    Great, looking forward to that.

    I'm curious as to what saddle clamp mechanism you come up with on your seat posts.

    Oh, by the way, that Ford's got nuttin on my German sled. ;-)

    The final version will most likely be a two piece aluminum clamp into a titanium tube.

    Beautiful!
    I like both the bike and scenery

    I want to ride bike BAD.
    But it's 10 degrees below zero here and it's not really rideable.
    Still our lathe operator Nikolay commuted yesterday on a bike 20km one way to Triton.

    Tis a great looking bike.

    -10C is standard winter weather here. Not nice for commuting. But if you can find roads that are not salted, so they have a nice hardpack covering. Riding with decent studded tyres is an amazing feeling.

    You should have started a second fatbike, one for yourself.

    The media!

    Bought a fat walled tube that will be used for machining BB shells and 1 1/8" headtubes. This is enough for about 15 frames.

    haha, Ti frames look great whatever way you finish them )
    I'd go for no finish these days. Colorful welds, raw looking tubes. Orange bling headset and BB cups.

    my first idea was a raw finish..... with mango headset, and wjlheels with mango ck hubs and nipples, and marwi ti tai day spokes... but dmitry says me that ther will be no more raw frames...

    There was too much negative discussion of raw finish so we cancelled it. Also, we use different welding technique now so welds are straw and silver. With a bit of blue outside the weld. No more bad blue in the weld.

    New welder.
    New shop.
    New shielding tools made from scratch.
    New argon gas supplier.
    More cleaning of the weld area before welding.
    Extra attention towards welds from me after many questions asked on forums.

    Quick mobile post.

    As I had mentioned before, a good friend of mine purchased a CNC machine.
    The assembly was finished yesterday night. CNC made in Moscow, Russia.

    6 people needed to put in and out of my landy to friend's apartment. Philip will take a few weeks of training before we move the CNC to Triton premises.

    I can't wait to start making our own disc brake mounts, dropouts and things like integrated seat post collars

    Packing



    Loaded into the Triton car




    Tiny but powerful. Ready for testing.
    Will be placed on a table behind it first



    Happy New Year!

    Dmitry

    Sent you an email two weeks ago.. I was wondering when my frame is ready?
    I placed the order and paid 11months ago, and you said i would get it to the summer.. ( 6 months ago..)

    Please, just give me a date for when the frame is ready. Cheers, Vegard

    Real life delivery times....

    I am close to pulling the trigger on a custom Triton frame, but there seems to be a large difference in reported delivery times and experienced delivery times.

    Triton is quoting 4-6 months, but it appears to be taking significantly longer, 8-12 months, when you look through the posts on this thread.

    Can anyone comment on their actual wait time for their frame? Thanks.

    Hi Vegard,

    Will get back to you by email.
    Sorry about this.
    Basically we had moved most of our production in house and thus the wait times on certain frames increased.

    You ordered a trials frame and I still have two of them to be made including yours.
    We first set up production to make XC 26 and 29" and road frames because they are currently the main scope. And we are shooting out these types of frames a lot quicker now.
    As for the trials frames, I have stopped taking orders on them because I wasn't so sure about wait times.
    I will have it sorted. I don't like such messages on MTBR as you may guess.

    True, there were a quite a few orders where customers had to wait quite long.
    Most of this due to our move to a new shop. I have been working hard on it for the last 6 months and currently XC and especially road frames are built quite fast.

    Still, there are/were some types of frames that have taken longer:
    - Frames with bent tubes in front triangle. We have designed and machined benders and still working on bending techniques so two frames had to wait for it.

    - Fat bikes. we are now making one frame and it has taken long because there had to be a lot of new tools machined. In progress now. Still many tricky clearance issues, once solved will be a lot easier to make.
    - Frames with 44mm headtubes. Three frames waiting, already sorted, finally found proper supplier for tubing and machining them now, will share photos later in the week.

    The road frames so far are the quickest to appear due to little to none bending and fewer clearance issues.

    As mentioned above I have paused taking orders on trials frames because I do not want customers to wait.

    Half a year ago waiting time was longer than expected. Every week we make something new that updates the wait time statistics.

    My guys are now working faster than the engineers can make the drawings. I have four people helping me with drawings. Two guys specialize in 29ers, one guy is into 26" XC and street/pump frames and one ex Boeing engineer helps us work out new frame types such as fatbike frames and also he designs little parts like dropout bullets and new dropouts.

    We don't have a 20 year history yet, we are quite young and my aim is to make it work nicely and smoothly.

    PS: Will process and post some photos of work in progress January.

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    12 months for a custom frame is more than acceptable IMHO. Probably best not to base expectations on old thread posts.

    I've been recieving frequent up dates, with lovely pics and diagrams. I certainly have no complaints.

    Anyway. Lets have some shiney titanium media.

    Thanks guys! The more we work, the more happy comments will appear.

    Now, 40 photos.

    32mm bender completed



    Testing and adjusting it now. This bender will allow us bend seat tubes and some of the top tubes



    Road frame being born



    Tacking







    Road frame



    Headtube welds right after welding



    M sized road frame for a light person 3.018 lbs



    Hand brushing



    Night time at Triton



    Back to work!



    Mitering tubes



    Day at Triton



    29er frame in progress





    We have had some massive snowstorms in Moscow. The traffic jams are killing, we outsource bead blasting now and I couldn't get out of the office to another town to take 5 frames for bead blasting. Time to build our own bead blasting box.

    That's a lot of snow outside.











    Chainstays mitering





    Paragon disc brake bridge on a road frame



    Making integrated seat collar for a 29er frame







    While waiting for new drawing we made a shaker that is used by divers to communicate underwater. Fully titanium.











    Paragon low mount dropouts arrived.
    This will be a nice touring 29er frame



    We had one piece of each dummy axle size.
    Now there is one frame being welded and another frame being checked for alignment, so we needed extra dummy axles.
    Nikolay machining new ones.



    Done! Ice!



    Hey, it looks like a 29er frame behind the bushes





    Good one



    44mm headtubes in production now!



    This one will be used for a street bike for our customer from Singapore.
    The next 44mm headtube for an XC 29er will have some curves and thinner wall.




    More to come!

    Sorry, what is Triton's design philosophy to ensure that the ride is compliant but at the same time power transfer is not wasted in a flexy frame?

    For some reason I just saw this thread; these are beautiful frames......nice work.

    Unfortunately I'm not in the frame market right now as I have one already slated for a build right now, but when I go 29er....I may have to give these a serious thought.

    Keep the pics coming.

    My Triton continues to impress. I just found out (thanks to my 7 month old) that baby wipes really make the logos with the sandblast pop!

    Dmitry, I'm still looking forward to finishing off my bike with one of your seat posts.

    Hi guys!

    Yup, I have been out of work for a while.
    Now back and been busy. I have quite a lot of media to share.
    Too bad we have our fast internet down right now for a few days, should be fixed on Monday. And then I can share the media.

    Some happy news!
    A number of my customers had to wait extra time lately for their frames to get bead blasted or decals bead blasted on their brushed frames. Total of 7 frames got "stuck" because we have been outsourcing the bead blasting and the guys ran out of bead (micro glass balls).
    Some frames got 3 weeks late.

    So we thought we shouldn't outsource it anymore.
    Spent over $11k on a huge compressor and bead blasting chamber with filters and recuperating system. Already got the compressor and waiting for the bead blasting chamber delivery early next week.
    This will make us more independent and fast.

    More to come!

    Dmitry
