    I received my cx frame from dmitry today. It is pretty damn well packed, actually took 20 minutes to open. Frame is sexy as hell, will build it in 2-3 weeks. Once I build I will share pictures.

    I too received my 29 HT frame late last week, but I just returned home last night so I cut it open this morning. It took me about 25 minutes to cut out, but it shipped perfectly. I'll post pictures of the final build when completed. Looks really nice.

    My thinking was that this area on the headtube isn't stressed very high. Some trials and BMX frames even have huge cut-outs there, including sharp edged ones:

    The only problem I see with shipping a frame this way, is everyone along the shipping chain will know what it is. It greatly increases the chances of the frame never making it to its destination. Especially with your return address. Someone could do an Internet search and know that it's a high end frame. But, for all I know, you ship it that way in a box.

    you're joking, right? of course it ships in a box, you have to be kidding.

    and what fat bike stays don't look flexy, unless you were joking again, hard to tell from a post. but what else can you do with fat bike stays other than bend them with enough clearance for the tires?

    Some people actually ship frames that way.

    You can use bigger tubes. You can use seat and chain stay yokes. There's ways around it.

    I have never seen one shipped that way. Doesn't mean it never happens but c'mon, how freakin often? As far as your flexy comment, it must be really slow for you to throw out such an obvious troll attempt.

    I'm actually very busy today, I'm always busy. Business is good! I'm just telling you what I see. And, yes, I had a frame shipped to me that way, and it came damaged. And, yes, Iv'e ridden a fatty made if thin Al tubes and that was even flexy, So, I don't see a steel one being less flexy.

    Your sample size of 1 hardly proves out widespread shipping in this manner so I have to agree, obvious troll is obvious.

    Those seat stays and the junction with the seat tube are totally different on that bike. Which helps prove my point. Moots knows how to do it right. Triton will learn, like everyone else does, from trial and error.

    lol,it was an attack onn a crappy bike brand. one that went under because they couldn't keep up with the times. you're the guy trolling a forum slagging their bikes regarding their packaging in the most retarded way possible. i'd love to know who, besides the one company you know of who ships their bikes not in a box?

    and without riding their fat bike and not knowing their tube wall thickness, your comments on their bikes flexiness is pure trolling as well. thanks for the neg rep too. that proves more than anything you're a d00sh

    i stand by my comments that mountain cycles are one of the fugliest bikes known to man. that's my personal opinion on them and i didn't even troll their old forum to say so.

    and since i haven't ridden their fat bike, i'll reserve calling it stiff or flexy. i'll wait till someone with ride time tries one.

    See how the seat stays are welded at almost a 90 degree angle to the seat tube? That going to make those two junctions really weak, especially with the seat stays as straight as they are. Those seat stays will break pretty easily at the seat tube. A gusset in between would help fix that.

    1. Packing.
    We have done it both ways: shipping in a box and most often like pictured above, in a strong foam + tape. We put a strut between the dropouts.
    I have had two cases with the frames scratched/damaged.
    We solved that.

    We can ship in a box. It's the customer who can make the choice.
    But this is international shipping and the cardboard box isn't light at all. Shipping fees will increase. By about 60%.

    2. Fat bike. Maybe you haven't noticed, but there is gusset between the stays on a finished frame...

    There was your chance to apologize to triton for talking out your a$$. Instead you decide to pat yourself on the back for something they were already doing without any input from you. Great job genius

    I have had our engineer Andrey make a 3D model of that, working this frame out and stress testing it.
    It's our first fatty but we did think a lot before actually starting to make it.

    Of course it would be a lot more flexy without that brace.

    Triton Bikes. Titanium frames handmade in Russia. Anyone? :)

    Writing from my phone.

    So I went down to the shop (it's 2am here) and took photos.
    We now machine wooden/plastic inserts for bb/seat tube/headtube.
    I have had one case when foam was damaged and headtube damaged. And another case when headtube got scratched.

    So we put these now.

    Btw, of course the shipping people know it's a frame, it's written on the invoice.
    But I use a trick so they don't check it online.

    Ps: guys please stop the fight. Who needs it here?

    Constructive criticism is only that when it is warrented. It isn't in this case. Triton did their homework and somehow you feel your trol job has anything to do with it. Weird. They seem to be plugging along just fine without you yet the company you model your user name on is bankrupt. That isn't surprising.

    I have just had the same on a Russian forum. Someone's response was: "I was looking through the nice photos and then the fight began. It lasted for like 5 pages and I was sick clicking "next page" till I saw more nice photos of the works in progress "

    When you ask me questions - I am open to respond. When users argue - that's also fine for a moment. When they just start blaming each other - that's no good.

    No, they are not bankrupt. They are owned by Ideation and have plans to return.

    The fatbike frame is mine. The rear end was tricky, as I wanted to fit the wider fat tyres (4.8") on 80mm wide rims. Something All the big fatbike manufactures had to take time to work out the best solution to. The current fat chainline doesnt give you much breathing space. Which is why 186mm hubs are on their way.

    I think it looks amazing both asthetically, and technically. Cant wait to recieve it, build it up, and start riding it. I have a modified lefty for it. So it'll get near 100mm of front squish too.

    If the geo looks odd. Thats because I'm only 5'7"

    My Triton HT is finally put together and operational. I'll draft up a full review with pictures and the entire experience with D, but for the mean time, I'll just say I am more than pleased with the frame.

    Theres a thread with more pics here:

    Custom Triton Ti fatbike

    Its going to be a beast. I just need to make sure I push the bikes limits. I usually off-road on a rigid SS 29er. So I'm going to need to up my game.

    We can ship in a box. It's the customer who can make the choice.
    But this is international shipping and the cardboard box isn't light at all. Shipping fees will increase. By about 60%.

    2. Fat bike. Maybe you haven't noticed, but there is gusset between the stays on a finished frame...

    I'd have to say that looks quite a bit nicer than Moot's approach. =D

    More media!

    These are photos of the first days of March.

    I was out in Israel for 4 days, showing Triton frames to local riders.
    Got orders and generally like the idea. Many people have never touched a Triton frame so they are not sure. Once they see - they like.
    I have an idea for a Triton road show. Visiting towns in Europe, showing bikes and frames. Have to work this out.

    Okay. Time for photos.

    Finally sorted out the filling for the tubes. Bending in progress.
    Will be making 3 more benders on a CNC machine later on.



    Slight bend for a 29er seat tube




    26" XC frame in progress




    29er frame




    Direct FD mount









    Sexy



    Large 49.6mm headtube for tapered fork. Now we also offer a smaller 44mm option.






    Fattie. Waiting for the bead glass to arrive and decals to be blasted









    Checking fork crown clearance. All good.



    Nikolay made a stem fixture. We shall be making first couple of stems soon. Pictured - the one with Paragon clamps. Really top quality parts.



    29er bike for a customer from Zurich, Switzerland



    LARGE



    Direct FD. Nice and simple. And no possible conflict with the water bottle mounts





    Light 29er frame in progress



    Air compressor installed



    Frame loaded in the bead blasting chamber as a reference for chamber size



    The whole thing with filters and bead recuperating system



    Hand brushing





    26" frame coming up





    Nikolay made up stem-handlebar combo fixture

    Benders? Did I just read benders?
    That's a good new for me... if you manage to bend properly a 38mm tube, of course.

    Why the need for such a massive headtube? Wouldn't a 44mm be enough?

    At the time we were making this frame, we still had neither the tubing for 44mm headtubes nor the tooling (reaming and facing and fixture mount).
    Now we have it all and already building three frames with 44mm headtubes.

    The customer loves it!

    Here's me testing it

    Has Triton made a 29er with the following specs:

    Chainstay 420-440mm
    140mm front fork
    330mm BB (from ground to center)
    609mm ETT
    18" ST

    But straight top tube rather than bent?

    Basically, a Carver Ti 420 without the bent top tube, and better standover or... a Kona Honzo in titanium?

    The Honzo, YelliScreamy, Nimble 9 are all great bikes, but they are also considerably heavier at 2.75kg. That's heavier than most aluminum full suspension bikes with 160mm travel!

    A Ti Honzo would be awesome. Kona really hit the mark with that one.

    My Yelli Screamy weigh's in at 24.2 lbs 1x10, at 650.00 for the frame it can't be beat. The frame is built like a tank, that's where the weight comes from.

    Yelli is also aluminum, which is good for weight, but so-so for compliance. I'm a heavier rider so it wouldn't matter much.

    Thing is the Yelli-Screamy is also built around 100-120mm fork.

    People are running it with a 140mm just fine.

    Wow, the seat & chain stay on that 29er look great! Looks like a complete different frame from what Triton used to build.

    Let's see some of the fat bikes built up.

    Dmitry, any ideas along the lines of a 29+ frame, something that could accommodate the Surly Knard 29x3" tyres? Sort of a half fat bike for those that don't need sand/snow potential, maybe with the Paragon Rockers as well. Keep the rear end as short as possible either via ST curve or offset, keep the rear spacing at 135 for hub gears and 73 for the BB shell. Standover as low as possible without sacrificing any rough/tough credentials.

    Just a bit of a variation on the fat frame you've done for Small Furry a sort of combination of On-One Fatty, Surly Krampus and Jones Diamond.

    I'd be interested in such a frame.

    Hi guys!

    We have been very busy lately.
    Frames being built, drawings being drawn. I have been managing the whole process nonstop.
    Received many inquiries by email and will respond to each one soon.
    Sorry for the wait.

    Also a newer version of Triton Bikes - Home is being made and it will have better editing options so that adding media to pages will not require programming skills

    More media to follow!

    Hi guys!

    I am finally back to emails. Sorry to those who waited.
    Judging by the requests we can do many things now.
    Two years ago we could not do Post Mount, 142x12mm dropouts, etc. Thanks to Paragon.
    Also offering 44mm headtubes now and they are becoming the most popular as you can nicely use them with 1 1/8" steerer and zerostack (internal) headsets or with tapered forks and external lower cup.

    Tube bending - next stage.
    We also made chainstay ovalizer, so better clearance can be achieved now. And shorter stays too. See photo of a 22mm tube and ovalized and bent 22mm tube.


    Anyways, here is pretty crazy news.

    Hey Californians, I just bought the tickets to the USA and I will be at Sea Otter Classic in Monterey 18-21!
    We do not have a booth there but I may have 26/29er frame with me as an example of our work.

    I am actually coming and bringing a special project bike, but I cannot talk about it now

    If you are interested in talking about your new frame project - come around.
    If you have been waiting for your Triton for ages and want to try to kick me in the face - you are welcome too

    First time in the USA. Very excited.
    Will be in SF on 17th but will be busy.
    Will also visit New York very shortly on 16th and full day 23rd.


    We have a bunch of frames hanging in the workshop waiting for the bead to arrive.
    Some frames are waiting for the bead blasting performed and some are hand brushed but waiting for the bead blasted decals to be applied.
    Should be sorted out next week.

    Thanks!

    Dmitry

    Great news! Will this allow to achieve those 390 mm tubular chainstays with 26" wheel, 58 mm wide and high tire?

    You should swing by my hood and drop off a bike at MBA Magazine for a couple days. They do a lot of testing close to my house. It would be great marketing, if they did a little article about your company. I think it's a very interesting story. And mags are looking for good content like that.

    My Triton - 29 Hard Tail. Got it from D about a month ago. I've been out of town for a while, so I had the guys at my LBS build it up. They were impressed with the frame.

    The ride is amazing; night and day from my former steel framed 29er.

    Biggest disappointment about the bike is the seat post...and that did NOT come from Triton.

    A few pictures:

    Hi Canyon,

    congratulations on your new bike - it looks great. I love the precise welds of Triton.

    Since you've mentioned it: what's wrong with the seat post? Moots stuff is supposed to be of top quality. Is it only me or does your seat lean backwards a bit?

    Sorry for my photography skills, not as good as the ones Dmitry took but it will give you the general idea I am really impressed by the ride quality. It is damn smooth compared to my scandium roadie.

    Hi guys!
    Beautiful bikes!

    I have a lot of media to share but last two weeks have been quite crazy.
    I am taking a plane to SF in less than 10 hours.
    I will have a stop in NY and if I find some Internet at JFK I will finally have some spare time to upload more photos.

    Announcement: I will be at Sea Otter Classic with a friend/customer of mine with a special project.
    Triton does not have a booth at Sea Otter as it has not been planned in advance.
    But! If you order your Triton at Sea Otter, you will get an instant 10% discount!

    Will be back with the media.

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    I checked your new website out. I guess you don't have a page yet for the road/fixie category? It's blank, so to speak. Do you have any photos of a single-speed that you've made? I'd love to get a titanium single speed based exactly on my old 1982 Peugeot P6 Iseran geometry!

    Hi,

    You are right.
    The initial website design required some coding skills to be able to fill in the pages correctly.
    I just never had time/effort to do it all right. Also we were collecting the media portfolio.
    We have already confirmed a website design update along with updated pages editing options. This will let me provide content in a quicker and less sophisticated way.

    We have built quite a few road frames, a couple of fixies and there's a quite classic geo single speed road bike coming up.

    I am now flying from NY to SF and don't have the photos on the cell phone. But can email you some later.

    We can do a geometry replica for sure.

    Dmrity, run for the hills and build frames in the USA! Immigration will never catch you. And I have a name for your new company in the USA.

    Haha!

    I so much loved the USA that during a coffee stop in Monterey this morning I told Dave from Dirtysixer I am going to run fast in the mountains and lay low And then I read your message

    There are like 6 framebuilders in Russia. And 500 in the USA.
    It's cool to be rare. And I am all legal.
    Was thinking EU though
