    Andy

    Thanks Andy!
    Looking forward to see the photos!

    The new production place will provide more possibilities.
    It will let us build frames faster, combining the power of two production sources.
    At the moment the waiting time is quite long...

    We do offer non-riser handlebars and bar+stem combos now!

    Another good news: PayPal has announced that on September 24th they are going to unlock the ability to receive funds for Russian citizens. Woohooo!
    So far all the PayPal payments to Triton have been forwarded to my German partner first. The update will speed up the whole ordering process.

    Brilliant, seems like you will have some new possibilities with that new workshop. Glad to see your business expanding! What is your main limiting factor today - welding, designing or tubes/material?

    Thanks Erik!

    We are limited on production turnaround speed because we only have one jig/one main welder at a current place. And customers have to wait for quite a bit.

    We will not be making anything dramatically different at the new place. But yes, it should give more possibilities. Eg while one jig is used for building an ordered frame, another can be used for prototyping new ideas.
    Plus Anvil fixtures offer a bit more freedom.

    I am also planning to expand the production to car offroad equipment (expedition racks/rocksliders/bumpers/protection, etc). As I am travelling with my Land Rover a lot and find current parts too expensive or too heavy or useless

    Вторую раму (стритово-триальную) обязательно покажите потом в готовом виде. Любопытно, как будет смотреться в реале место стыка верхней трубы, подседелки и перьев.

    Basically dom1n1k asked me to share a photo of a finished street-trials frame pictured above (half of a frame on a jig). He is interested how the top tube/seat tube/seat stays junction would look when done.

    Remember that light street bike in raw finish?



    The customer asked me to powder coat it into blue and here is a short video

    <iframe width="560" height="345" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/u45FM7G2Kp4?hd=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    And this is how it looks now.

    Hi, if i'm not wrong, i think Cane Creek does have a shock that can be used for a soft-tail design. I remember reading about it. I will try to see if i can find a reference to it...

    Yes, that is used on the Siren Song: Song 29

    I think I need a new softtail another day... The issue there is often lateral stiffness though.

    Wow! The polished decals look sweet!
    I like the way they look around the bottom bracket area

    Seatposts???

    My Triton frame is in need of a seatpost.

    Any luck with a 27.2 layback seatpost in the near future???

    Nice work on the bar stem combo Dmitry. Are the stem clamps threaded, or is it for use with a nut and bolt combination?

    Also, hypothetically, would you consider using a similar design in combination with an ebb, so split shell, as opposed to pinch bolt, like the one on Seatboy's OS Bikes Blackbuck below?

    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    The stem clamps are M6 threaded, yes.
    Just like the bearing holder of this Triton unicycle




    Never considered a split shell really.
    There's a risk of a clamp weld to crack..

    And when the shell is one piece it just can't happen. Different forces applied on a clamp. This is when Paragon system is used.

    And the safest one is the Bushnell

    Thank you for your reply Dmitry. All ebb's have their downsides I suppose, most caused by improper setup and over-tightening. I believe that the split shell (which is used on the Ti Singular Pegasus 29er) would be the most unlikely ebb system to be affected by ovalising or creaking. Your mention of possible clamp welds cracking is the first I've heard of, but keep in mind that I'm not a welder of any sort.

    Keep up the good work. All your customers on here have nothing but praise for your frames.

    I just read this whole thread. I must say your frames look very very nice. If i could ever pony up the money I just might have to look into getting one. If you ever get into the soft tail's that would be even better.

    Yes, I have Paragon sliders here with the belt drive seat stay separator.
    The frame is being designed right now for an Australian customer.

    Will be sharing the media once we start building this frame.

    Awesome. I had a mate ask me the question as he was considering a Blacksheep belt drive frame. I showed him your work and he was impressed. He liked the raw finish, as do I. He does also like the swoopy style of the Blacksheep though.

    I dig the pic with the vernier calipers, I mostly use dial but swap to digitals when reading metric, as a 16 year machinist I am always suprised at how many in my field can't read verniers lol but I started on them.

    Hello world!

    Haven't posted here for some time.
    Working hard!

    Here is the latest 24" street-trials frameset that's on its way to States.

    The frame downtube is an oversized 44mm.
    The fork legs are 34mm which is the largest ever tubing we used for forks.
    It affected the weight a bit - same fork made out of 32mm tubing comes at 710 grams. This one is 756.

    I just discovered this thread and I have to say those are some really gorgeous frames. Now my question is would you be able to do a springer front fork for a 26" wheel? I would love to have one.

    Something that looks like the fork pictured near the bottom of this thread

    Oh and you need to do a road frame with both regular brakes and disc tab. Now that discs are officially allowed for cyclocross, I can't see why you wouldn't want to get in on that market.

    Hi Spunge,

    No, we cannot make such a fork. Yet.

    Yes, we can build a CX frame with disc brake tabs and I think we are making one now (I have to check the drawings)

    Да, рамы Тритон производятся на мощностях Рaпид.
    Это обсуждалось в данной теме ранее (на предыдущих страницах).
    Важной особенностью является то, что я осуществляю контроль за производством на всех этапах. От нарезки труб до сверки конечных размеров. Нанесение надписей и ручную шлифовку также делаю сам.

    Сейчас идет подготовка собственных мощностей Тритон в Москве. Я выкладывал тут несколько фотографий ранее.

    Translation:

    Yes, the Triton frames are currently built at the Rаpid facilities. This had been discussed here (see previous pages).
    The main difference is that I personally control every stage of production. From tube cutting to measurements checks. I also do the brushing finish and apply decals.

    Right now we are (Triton) engaged in organizing our own frame production facilities in Moscow. I published a few photos here before.

    Thanks,

    Today was a Christmas day...

    I have finally received the long-awaited Anvil jig with full nine yards of mitering gear.
    I am very very tired now. We had to bring the crates from another town. And then unscrewed thousands of screws and we opened the crates and saw the beauties...

    Oh man..
    I was jumping like a kid!
    True jewels...

    Million thanks to Don Ferris, Anvil Bikes. True master!

    First photo taken on a cell phone



    Taking the crates out of the car.
    Don't look at the messy place. The place is another building that has been abandoned for years. You can even see the portraits of the USSR leaders - Lenin and Brezhnev right behind my car. Needs a good clean..












    3 am.
    Now I can go to sleep and see Anvil fixtures in my dreams!

    Thanks!

    Nice!

    Need to get a powerdrill to take those screws out.

    Reading your post made me think of the excitement I had when my Triton 29er was coming.

    Good to see things are going well.

    I am riding the snot out of my frame.

    I see what you mean but the customer is medium-sized too and I was suggested to go for the light parts.

    I am 92kg and I would spec out my own touring bike in a different way. No carbon fibre parts for sure.

    Lets see some pictures .....

    Okay...enough talking

    Let's see some frames being welded on the new Anvil jig!

    Whatever jig you use, just make sure it is welded as nicely as my 29er frame was ... that is one of the things everyone seems to compliment my frame on.

    Here is a picture of a local race I did a couple weeks ago. I was burning the track and the photographer did not do a good job of focusing.
    Cheers,
    Andy

    Andy, it will still take at least a couple of months before we start actually using Anvil for production frames. Firstly we will need to test everything out.

    Well, that's a nice photo! I can't see anything hahaha

    Here's Magilla_Guerrilla's 29er from: Triton Bikes Ti 29er ... Giving it a Try!


    Well here is mine, almost built up. Sub 26lb. That's with pretty heavy 2.4in EXO tyres.

    Haven't taken it for a test ride yet due to a couple of unforeseen issues. I have to find a front derailleur with an extra low profile so it doesn't interfere with the rear tyre. I've been told a newer SRAM X7 or X9 will do the job. I have an older X9 and it's still too wide. Also, when I ordered the frame, I stupidly forgot to tell Dmitry to ream the headset for 22mm headset cups. He only made them 15mm for standard headsets. So my headset sits 7mm too high and too low, with 15mm inside the headtube and 7mm outside. The headset is stainless steel, so I'm not concerned too much about placing stress on it. I will not be taking it offroad until I get a new headset, but will use it for commuting in the meantime. It just looks strange.

    I did take it for a run out on the street and I can already tell it will be a lot of fun on the trails. The short chainstays and wheelbase make it feel very flickable.

    Hi there!

    We are now building/preparing for a build a few nice 29er frames.
    At the same time setting up new equipment.
    Making the new Anvil tools work with the Russian mitering machines.

    Here are the photos of the first test mitering using Anvil chainstay mitering fixture.
    Really a pleasure to work with such precise tools.

    Seat stay and main tube mitering systems are still be to tested.

    Ready...steady...



    GO!


    Done


    Nice...

    Some technical news:

    - We offer 1.5" headtubes (49.6mm ID) that you can use with a tapered fork with the use of adaptor (for the upper headset cap).

    - Most likely we will be offering BB30 solution for our frames soon. With the use of Paragon BB30 shell.

    - We now offer in house made seatstay splitters that are used with our generic dropouts. See photos in the post above (it shows horizontal dropouts but we can do the same with verticals).

    Bent Seat Tube?

    Dmitry ...

    Planning on getting a second Triton 29er in the near future (within a year), and I was wondering if you are able to bend ti tubes, particularly the seat tube? This will allow to tuck in the rear wheel a few millimeters more for shorter chainstays.

    Yes, we can bend seat stay a little bit for more clearance. Not a large radius though.

    Working this out.

    There will be a 29er built soon with such a bent seat tube, I will share the photos

    Hi there!

    I have not been very active responding to emails because of a crazy trip we did.

    Drove from Moscow to the North-West, Saint Petersburg. This is 700km or 9 hours of driving.
    Was picking up the alignment table from the shop specializing in precize optics and mechanics.
    We will use this table to properly check our frames' alignment. I will also fix the Anvil jig on it.

    The fork lift broke down that day so we had to spend hours to properly load the table on the trailer. The weight of the table is almost 1000 kg.

    When I was ready to drive back to Moscow, I tore off the trailer cables so the lights wouldn't work. Spent another couple of hours under rain at -1C fixing the cables. Done. Driving back to Moscow took 10 hours. 5 hours of sleep in 2.5 days.

    Finally the table is at the new premises. It was really hard to find it. They are very expensive. I was so happy that I kissed it


    Sunset in the middle of nowhere


    Making love with the table


    Lifting the table on the trailer's level was a pain but we made it


    Pushing in.


    Saint Petersburg is awesome


    Back to Moscow. 2 hours of sleep. Morning. Unloading the table. Now we had a proper forklift helping us!
    The weather was nice!


    The smallest forklift in the are finally made it through the doors and voila, the alignment table is here!


    Thanks!

    Remember that trials frame I shipped to Austria on 3rd of November?



    The shipping was really quick.
    The customer was already riding a complete bike on November 9th.
    I like the minimalistic look of the bike.

    Gerhard's message made my day. This is why I enjoy doing this so much!


    I love it!!! If I only would have known earlier... Custom Geo, longlivity, ultimate quality at an affordable price - this is realy the deal! I will recommend your frames to every rider I know

    Sounds like the trip to get the table was a bit of an epic!

    Beautiful work; I may have to order something(s) in a month or two. I've been looking at the pics for some time now and am wondering about lead times, prices and just what is possible. What is the best way to find out, and should we send drawings/sketches? Is it best to send an email or PM or what? (Last time I looked at the Triton website there wasn't much info there.)

    Thanks, Dmitry

    The chain is tensioned using a so called "snail cam" tensioner. You can see it on the last photo between the dropout and the cog.

    Same ones used on trials and MX motorbikes

    Hi!

    Thanks! True, it was a fun trip!

    Email is the quickest way to contact me since I have push-email on my cell. So at least I received everything and then take my time to respond to all the messages when I am at the PC. Email is also better in terms of attachments.
    Anytime: info@tritonbikes.com

    You do not need to send my any drawings. I can make them up for you. I will need to know your preferred geo and your body measurements. Or if you do not know your likely geo, then we can work it out together.

    As far as the lead times are concerned, I have to be more careful now. The number of the orders is increasing and sometimes it takes longer to produce a frame than it had been estimated. Some frames are quite unusual and those extra bits also take time.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    can you tell me if you plan to offer Syntace X-12 rear dropouts as option for your frames sometime in the near future ?
    Something like this (IS brake mount will be just fine):

    This is like the first ever inquiry on the X-12 system so I would say: not in near future..
