    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.

    Here is the road bike we built for our US customer who works in Russia.

    Triton frame / Ritchey / 3T / Shimano 105 / Fulcrum wheels
    Simple and effective bike.
    We all love the way it looks and the customer is happy too!
