    That FORM Cycle bent post is really nice, I was going to go with Form Cycles for my 650b frame. I just desided to go with Dmitry and put a down payment in. It will be 650b with lefty, I think it will be 1x10 or single speed. With every bike built Triton will get better and better in every aspect, can't wait!!

    What made you decide on a 650b vs 29er?

    I have a 29er that I posted on page 27, I love it. I think the 27.5 wheels will allow for better acceleration and better handling. The 650b 2013 will be the bike to get, getting parts is no problem now. The wheels will be lighter and stiffer, my tires will be wide and tubeless. Seatstay bent with short chain stay. Headtube on the slacker side, this bike should be really fun to ride.

    When I converted my Cannondale flash 2 alloy to single speed, and put the Pacenci tl28 rim on rear with Hadley hub 2.4 racing ralph tire. Front is Arch rim with Project 321 hub and 2.35 nobby nick. This transformed the bike, making it light and nimble. I felt like a kid again riding it. I love the lefty!!

    Hello comrades!

    So, here are a couple of mobile photos of the work in progress.

    We are now building an XXL 29er (24" frame size) at a new shop.
    So it needed a 1.5" (49.6mm) headtube...190mm long.
    Kolya has machined it and it is HUGE



    Here it is compared to a traditional 1 1/8" x 100mm headtube



    Checking sizing



    Almost finished



    Jig set up. Check out long seat tube



    Sasha, the welder, has moved closer to Triton Bikes shop and now commutes to work.
    He still rides a GT but once the workload isn't so heavy in winter, we will make him a nice little Triton frame



    We are processing a few frames now.
    Once finished, switching to the next batch of frames. I want to sort out all the long waiters asap.
    My aim is to build awesome frames at competitive timing.
    There are some custom builders out there who make a frame in like 4 weeks. That would be great.

    Will keep on posting

    We have redesigned our iPhone covers. Now they perfectly match the shape of your iPhone protecting its glass back panel from any scratches.
    We use carbon fiber vinyl film. Thick and soft. It holds very nicely and can be removed without leaving any stains.
    These covers are made here at the Triton shop.

    Have been testing one on my iPhone and I like it!

    Already shipped a set of two to the USA along with a 29er frame

    Now in stock.
    USD 9.95 / each

    Damn Dmitry, your bending options are coming along nicely.

    You know once you perfect the seat tube, top tube and down tube bending, I'll be having another 29er made, same geometry as the last one, but with the few tweaks I've discovered I should have got you to do the first time around!

    My brother has already secured my current one when it's time to get the new one. Sorry, but I'll also be getting the same graphics as well, seeing as I get so many comments on how awesome they look. I'l apologize now for the extra work!

    Best thing is, the delay in getting it won't kill me like it did the first time, as I'll still have my current Triton to ride while I wait

    The Delay is killing me! /(Yes, this is my first Triton)
    Starting to have second thoughts around geometry, looks and finish!
    Sent you an email couple of days ago! Would love if you could send me an estimate when the frame is beeing built, so i can stop thinking about it until then!

    Yeah, I'm losing faith too. I keep getting empty promises that my frame will be ready on "x" day and crickets. Nada.
    Pretty frustrating to say the least. I'm sure he puts out a nice product but like VegardSkorp, this is my first Triton (and road frame) and I'm afraid by the time I receive the frame I'll have missed out on a full season of riding.
    I was counting on having my road frame ready to go before my child was born since it would be easier to get a road ride in rather than packing the 29er on my car and hitting the trails with the new born here.
    Again, this is not a personal rip on Dmitry as I applaud him for taking the plunge and starting his own business. He truly is a bike nut who puts out a good product as it seams reading testaments of Triton riders.
    In the meantime I'm keeping myself busy with my new baby boy and look forward to building up my bike when my frame does arrive.

    +1 to that.

    I'm waiting for my 2nd triton, the first one took ages, the second one has taken even longer. I paid in full in early Feb, and still haven't got it. At one point I asked for a refund, and I 'decided' to build another bike instead. He insisted it would be ready in a few weeks. This was a few months ago. I wish I had insisted.

    Again, this isn't a burn on Dmitry, he's a great bloke, been really good to deal with. But sometimes I wish I could get an honest answer, even if it is "I can't tell you exactly when it'll be ready, maybe x weeks" rather than "in 2 weeks" then nothing for 2 months.

    I still can't wait for my new frame. It'll be awesome.

    gbs and Bunyan, your two frames are coming one after another. Those two drawings are lying close to each other.
    Then there's a CX frame coming and a number of 29er frames, also a trials frame (Vegard).

    We had to let most of the frame building workers go for vacation. Almost all of them are finally back. We are waiting for the guy that will be sorting out your frames (mitering the tubes). The rest are ready.

    Your two frame were supposed to be built before workers were out for vacation and this is what I was basing the timing on. However previous frames/orders have paused the process.

    I am trying to keep calm and process frame after frame.
    I don't have any other choice.

    We have progressed and made quite a number of frames this summer.
    We have built 9 frames at the new premises and progressing on every step. Simple frames take only a few days. Complicated frames take longer.

    I am having hard times now but I still love my thing and I will survive.

    PS: contacted people above, will write to you gbs shortly and people who haven't got replies yet

    Here is the recent 29er frame that had been shipped to the USA

    - Top tube bend for lowered standover
    - Smooth Paragon flanged dropouts with replaceable hanger
    - Room for Sram 2X10 crankset
    - Revolution! decals in Russian
    - Ziptie cable mounts all the way

    The customer had asked me to apply these Russian decals.

    There was some cleaning underway at premises next to Triton's. Those premises have been used since 1969 and had been abandoned for quite a while.
    I saw Lenin's portrait among garbage and saved it from the dump.
    At least my premises and some of the machines had been built during Soviet era, so the portrait might fit in nicely

    Please note that there is no political idea under this. Neither my customer nor I am communist/anticommunist or whatever. I am far from this.

    So I did a photoshoot of the Revolution frame and a portrait of the Russian revolution leader Vladimir Lenin.

    Wow! awesome pics Dimitry! Love the industrial backdrop. I got some flack from a couple of members here on the forum on the graphics but I love the look. This has nothing to do with politics, just history and revolution was a big part of both Russian and US history. The hammer and sickle was the symbol of unity between the agricultural peasants and industrial workers to fight oppression not a support of communism. To me this is more of a statement of "Revolution" against the Asian bike machine in support of a Russian capitalist frame maker, Dmitry who is putting out some great stuff.

    As far as time to ship, this was ordered in November but I went thru some geo changes with Dmitry and this added time to the build. With custom there are some things that require time to think about and compare. The top tube went thru different length and bend combos before we settled on the final. Dmitry was great with cad drawings and email.

    That frame was shipped 7/27 and tracking has it in customs now! should be here in Florida any day. For those waiting - when you get the tracking info the stoke returns kind of like getting a "second wind" on a long ride.

    Your Triton makes two Tritons in Florida that I know of. What part of Florida are you at?

    That frame ended up looking real nice. When I first saw the top tube bend in an earlier picture, it looked too severe, but now that the frame has a blasted finish, it looks natural and flowing. Looks sweet. I wonder if Dmitry can do bends like that on the seatstays?

    You should have your frame any day now. My frame showed in JFK customs, until one morning it showedit was out for delivery. I think mine took about 7 days.

    Cant wait to see the build.
    You cannot go against nature, because when you do, its part of nature too.
