    Awesome - love to get a look at it when you get it. What kind of a geo mix did you go for?

    This will be my first custom HT and I am sort of in two minds about what to try for in terms of full geo. The bike I have had the most fun testing in my search for a new ride is the Commencal Meta AM. I think that this is because at 6" it is one of the few rides that I have not felt either a) too tall or b) too short. It is like with a lot of rides I have found myself in no-mans land.

    What measurements did you end up with, gbs, and why?

    My geo will be pretty much the same as the Transition TransAM. 68.5 1.5" Headtube, 72.5 seat tube. I've gone with a short effective toptube of 559mm, but I am only 5'7".

    Hi everybody!
    Spent a week in a shop. New lathe operator finally joined us. We fixed and centered main lathe that will be used for machining head tubes and BB shell and other stuff. He is still unpacking. Now writing from a phone. Will upload some media when I get to PC.

    Triton Bikes. Titanium frames handmade in Russia. Anyone? :)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1342711673.755618.jpg

    That last pic with the bent TT is dead sexy. What size tube is that and what's the largest diameter tube you're able to bend now?

    To those that have ordered and are still waiting, please be a bit more patient. We ordered 3 frames and it took 7 months from the initial down payment to delivery. A bit longer than what we would've liked but Man, the frames are awesome! Worth the wait. Here are some crappy pictures I took. It's been raining quite heavily the past days and I don't want to muddy it up.

    Bent downtube

    Many frame builders are bending the top of the downtube on 29ers to ensure fork clearance. Any thoughts of going in that direction?

    This is 32mm tube. We have like 3 of them left now.
    Will need to order more.
    I am still not 100% about the bend. Working on it.

    We have tried bending 35mm tube in the same bender. Bad results. Working out.

    The next thing is to sort out bending 38mm down tube for small sized 29er for nice fork clearance.

    I have a penchant for bent ones if they're bent gently near the top like the Form Cycles ones.
    I'd post an image but I don't have the required number of posts.

    Here is some more media. Now proper camera.

    Completed smooth 26" street-trials frame, V-brake mounts only, vertical flanged dropouts.
    This one will stay in Russia







    This will be a 26" AM frame



    29er/hybrid/belt drive compatible







    Built up a nice 26" XC/all round bike for a local customer



    Carbon fiber vinyl decals



    Almost finished the lady 26" frame with smoothly bent top tube.
    Will check the weight but should be around 1420 grams.
