    Hi everybody!

    We value our time here at Triton and your time, too.
    I will keep on posting "work in progress" media, frames and built-up bikes.
    I will not be taking part in discussions (such as the one above).

    So here we go, here's a new portion of Work in Progress!

    ***I need my Canon back, the Sony sensor and lens are waste...

    We made a tube bender for rack tubing (10mm). From scratch.
    Works nice and smooth.



    Paragon paradise
    PM mounts, Sliders, Rockers, breezer dropouts, 142x12 dropouts, tube splitters, ISCG05 mounts, canti mounts, etc.



    Paragon 142x12mm dropouts to work with Shimano skewer.



    Post Mount



    Canti mounts



    Our welder Sasha has won a Kemppi cap at the Weldex exhibition in Moscow



    Getting ready for a fatbike.
    Engineer said we needed a 80mm radius bend.
    We don't have such a bender. So we have to make one.

    Take a block of steel, mark it and mount on a plate



    Install on a lathe



    Mandrell slowly appears



    After a day on a lathe the steel block got its shape and fitted on the Anvil bender base.



    Yes.



    See table: 4 front triangles mitered in two days: fixed gear frame, fat bike, two 29ers
    One is loaded on a jig



    27.2mm seat post being tested now



    Sasha welding a fixed gear frame





    Tacked. Checking fitment. By today, this frame is completely welded. Will post the pics later on.




    Thanks!

    Great update.

    Love the paragon selection. Like a xmas selection box of chocs

    The fixed gear bike looks nice too. I could do with replacing my flexy steel fixed frame, and maybe a Ti rack, and maybe a Ti seatpost........Darn this thread

    Positive news:
    1. I now have a Canon 7D camera before my old camera is fixed, so next batch of photos will be of higher quality.
    2. We are collaborating with a friend of mine who ordered a CNC machine. The machine is being built now in Moscow. It should be ready by mid December. Since I have some free space the machine will be located and used at our shop! My friend will be making suspension parts for race cars and we will be using CNC machine to make dropouts / disc brake mounts / etc etc.
    Always wanted to have an access to CNC!

    Have a nice weekend everybody!

    That's awesome! That CNC machine will be great for the shop. Looks like you won't have an excuse to make some VPP full suspension 29er frames now. ;-)

    Glad you got your hands on a 7D. Looking forward to done nice Triton shots.

    Soooooo.... machined chainstay yokes so compact as to provide both chainring (and hopefully Hammerschmidt) and fat tire clearance with short chainstays will now be doable, right? And maybe even one-piece machined BB shell/ISCG/chainstay yoke parts?

    Machined Ti BB yoke means that frame will be $400-500 more expensive. A solid block of Ti needed for this operation would weight half of a complete bike. And considering prices of titanium it would make it a very expensive frame.

    Well.. we're talking dream frames here. )

    I'd pony up for that if I were sure about nailing all the other aspects of design, like geometry and features. Mostly have my mind set about features, though. But still trying to figure out the geometry (down to 1 mm and 0.25 degrees) that I'd like to see set in titanium.

    As a matter of fact, I just picked up my bike yesterday. I only have an iPhone pic with the finished bike on the stand.

    I'll get some better pics and will also share my thoughts on what I think of the bike after I get a few rides on it.

    The bike looks dead sexy, I hope she rides as well as she looks.

    Finally got the bike home and had the chance to take her out for her maiden ride. As I mentioned on my thread I opened on roadbikereview "From Russia with Love - Custom Ti from Triton", http://forums.roadbikereview.com/bik...-274803-6.html
    The bike rides great and handles very well and is stiff in the right places. I really need to get more miles under my belt but I was grinning the whole way on my first ride.

    Total weight is 19.55lbs and the frame obviously custom measures in around a 64-65cm. I'm looking forward to logging a lot of miles on this bike.

    Here are a few final pics of the finished bike. Thanks to Dmitry and the boys at Triton for a job well done.

    Hi everybody!

    We are on the way to Italy to visit Dedacciai bicycle tubing factory for samples of CrMo tubes and then to Santini to work out design of the Triton Bikes team jerseys!

    Steel is getting real.

    Meanwhile 4 frames in production at different stages.
    44mm headtubes and PF30 BB shells will be released soon too.

    The new bender is finished and we are testing it. Here is the bend without any filler.
    We will use it for the current fat bike project.

    Dedacciai tubing, Italy.
    We now have double butted steel tubesets for 29er frames and classic road bikes. Other types will be available too.

    So...

    We went to Italy, Milan for two days to do two things:
    1. Work out Triton Team wear with Santini factory
    2. See the Dedacciai production and get a couple of test steel tubesets

    Dedacciai were first on the schedule.
    The train connection from Milan to Cremona (Deda location) wasn't working out for me. The Milano Centrale station was loud, long queues and the next train was in like 1.5 hours. So I decided to take a taxi.
    It took us quite a long time to get out of Milan and we got to Deda in an hour...
    Here is what I had to pay in Euros The taxi driver was happy haha





    I was met by the Dedacciai manager Stefano and he showed me around the factory.
    Deda makes everything: steel tubing, aluminum, titanium and carbon fibre.
    Sorry for the quality of the photos, I took them with my phone.



    Here is some of the tooling used for butting



    New press



    I took a few tubesets with me (will share photos in the next post).
    And basically we are ready to make a 29er and a road frame out of steel.

    The second day was Santini factory.
    These guys produce cycling wear for dozens of teams in the world, including Giro d'Italia official cycle wear, Australian, Irish and Russian national cycling teams, etc etc.
    We spoke to them at EuroBike 2012 and decided to make a batch of Triton Team cycle wear.

    Santini from the outside. Takes quite a large area





    Hall of fame





    Giro







    Russian colleagues



    Triton Team jersey design in process



    Santini designers offered us a few versions.
    We stayed with the Russian flag colors and wanted our uniform to be conservative, suiting competition and normal road use. Just like our Ti bikes. Simple and clean

    The final design is yet to be decided.
    Below is a quick draft.




    We like it!

    Once everything is sorted, we shall order the following items:
    - Triton Team short sleeve jersey
    - Long sleeve winter jacket
    - Triton branded shorts
    - Tights
    - Full fingers gloves

    The Triton staff will receive the uniform for free, it will also be sent to our team riders, and it will be available at our website.

    I will notify once the wear is available.

    Thanks!

    Damn Dmitry, those are pimp! Great design. I hope you'll offer "Man" size.
    Looking forward to seeing what you'll end up with.

    Had another great ride with my roadie today. Smooth as butta.
