    Nice try with rapid titan.
    Lowend russian titan on mtbr...

    These frames was very good product when they sells for 150$. For that price you can forgive them wrong dimensions and angles, strange unbatted titanium tubes and awful dropouts...

    I'm from Russia... seems it close many times. And think that rapid-titan makes crap-frames for touring bikes and nothing more.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for an opinion on Rapid. However, I am here not on behalf of Rapid, but on behalf of Triton Bikes. I have been working with them closely for many years and I agree there were quality issues back in the days. But I have put a lot of effort to avoid this. I mean, a LOT OF EFFORT. Many hours, days and months. Untill I started getting proper results that satisfied me.
    Every frame is carefully checked before the dispatch. The geometry is correct.
    For certain frames I use the dropouts of my own design and they do look well and are functional at the same time.

    The price of a frame is what the customers are willing to pay for it. There are Tritons all over the world. And their owners are satisfied with them. I receive thankful letters from my customers and this says it all.

    At the moment a new production facility is being developed where we will have wider capabilities.
    I will post up photos one day soon.

    BTW: Strange unbutted tubes?? Hey, do you know that a set of Reynolds double-butted tubing for single frame delivered to Russia costs more than US$ 800?
    The tubes we use now - they work. They are strong and light. And the frames made out of these tubes make all types of riders happy - from trials riders to XC guys. Just like my Tritons make me happy.

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    Non-butted Ti tubes surely don't put me off!
    They are stronger against impacts that way.

    EnglishT is right. This is a Toyota Avensis. They do not sell them in North America. They were available in Europe, Russia and its neighbours, also Japan. It's the size of an Accord. A new style Avensis has been available since 2009.

    It's got various engines, from 1.6 to 2.4. Mine is 2.4. Nice family car with everything you need inside. It's got over 200k km on the odo (over 120k miles). It's taken me all over Europe (done over 40k km in EU in it) and eastern exUSSR countries.
    It never failed but it's kinda dull. Just like all Toyotas

    I organize trials competitions in Ukraine and this car takes me there every year (over 2000 km drive full of bumps and pot holes).

    Why?

    Ok, they're good cars (especially re: reliability) but not particularly inspiring...




    Ps: Have you ever tried the thing with google where you type in "find chuck norris" and hit the 'feeling lucky' button?

    Posting up recent frames and bikes

    This bike has been built as a birthday present for a Russian senator
    It was first planned as a fully XTR bike but since these parts are extremely expensive here in Russia and we were short of time - we had to go for XT.

    So many times I have heard from my friends who just started riding bikes: "Man, I love my bike, but I have to lean forward to reach the bars and my ass hurts. My mum's bike feels much better. What do I change here?"
    I knew this bike will never be used for hardcore XC riding, but rather for recreational riding in the local forest. So I made it more comfortable than standard XC bikes usually are:
    1) used FSA stem with variable angle. It is heavier than the normal stems but it can let the rider choose the most comfortable position
    2) put Ritchey WCS riser bars for more vertical and relaxed riding position
    3) used comfortable wide saddle with gel inserts
    4) put Wellgo platform pedals with sealed bearings so the guy would never slip off the pedals

    The bike feels very nice and at the same time it's techy. Gears switch, brakes stop, the fork works and locks.
    The guy was happy
    All the guests had tried it that night. One even fell off the bike and injured himself a bit. Don't drink and ride!










    Street trials frame powdercoated sky blue. Integrated cable routing. We leave a wire in the frame for easier brake installation











    My dad's street bike.Triton frame and forks.
    I love this one. When dad isn't riding, then I ride it It just feels sooo good. Quite fast (especially if you put the seat higher), powerfull brakes let me do some trials moves, it can bunny hop real high and it is light. Thanks to a Ti forks. It flexes a bit when I do mistakes and at the same time it's only 700 gr.

    When his friends were ordering the bike I made sure he would be riding it.
    He's got a couple of other bicycles and motorbikes. He does ride. Which is cool

    I will take the bike to the mechanic in the end of autumn to do all the checks. We'll see if it had been used much or not.

    Thanks!

    I do not get many requests on full sus bikes and therefore trying to concentrate on hardtails.
    Sometimes I get fed up with the bumps hitting my back when I ride in the woods, so I may come up with a full sus bike for myself first

    Recent bike I built up. Matt black powder coating (as had been required by the customer).
    Middle-range parts. XT rear mech. The rest is Deore.

    It's very hot in Moscow and the bike gets extremely hot in seconds.
