I will send you a scan of the sizing table.
While the managing part of Triton Bikes was in Italy, the creative part was creating :)
Nikolay is machining a 80mm radius tube bender for 19mm tubes that will be used on fat bikes and 29ers with short stays.
We have found proper black anodized M2 alien bolts for the Triton star headbadges.
Stainless steel bolts are on their way too.
Paragon sent us DT Swiss 142x12 compatible flanged dropouts and Nikolay machined dummy axle for a jig for this standard. This week we will be building a frame based on these dropouts.
Happy customer! A bass guitari player from a Moscow based rock group got himself a large Triton fixed gear frame
Unpacked the Dedacciai double butted CrMo tubing (0.8/0.5/0.8mm).
This tubeset is designed for a 29er frame.
I also have a tubeset for a classic road bike frame.
Please quote me if you are interested in a steel frame. We can make you the one with this tubing and the price will be lower compared to future steel frames :)
Almost finished our first standard frame. Classic XC 29er.
- Paragon Post Mount disc brake mount!
- Only 1524 grams in size 18"
- Will take up to 2.2" tire
- Classic 1 1/8" headtube and 73mm BSA BB shell
- No mounts for fenders and rack
Will add up decals and headbadge and post up the completed frame.
This frame may be taken by a local customer. However if he does not take it, I will put it for sale. Next day shipping to any place in the world.
Paragon road bike brake bridge
Mill center finder
I think the cab driver ripped you off!
Is this offer still available?

So here is the video below! It was done as an interview and I have never been interviewed before haha :) It's in Russian anyway, but you will be able to see some production moments there.

Yeah! You're famous now!
I like the music in the background. Russian Blues? Vyssotski? 5'Nizza?
"Its nirvana to mix hobby and work. The suit and tie job hunt didnt work so I gave myself a year to make money at the bikes...."
Saturday at Triton was good.
Our customer from the US came to the Triton shop to check out his roadie frame
He also brought the parts for a build and I started building the bike
Will share nice photos once it's fully built.
More road bikes to come!
WHoa... It is crystal clear that your customer is not smiling without proper reason :)
Extremely nice looking roadie frame!
Nice!! Lookin good. Lets see some finished pics.
Russian for "Revolution" Works for me!

I'm loving the high quality of the work that I've seen on here so far. The attention to detail, combined with Dmitry's enthusiasm for his product & customer communication has absolutely sold me on this brand :thumbsup:
I realise it'll probably be a long wait, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.
Please don't put the prices up anytime soon Dmitry :D
^^ In the world of customs, waiting for Triton is not long at all. I once waited 9 months for a surfboard...waiting 6 months for a custom Ti frame seems extremely fast to me.
I waited 9 months for a car!
We actually raised them in October :D

29 photos this time.
So we finished another tube bender. 80mm radius, for 19mm tubes.
This will be helpful for fatbikes' seat stays and light 29er frames' chainstays.
Bender being machine. The cutter is 19mm round shape.
Done! Installed on the Anvil Bikes Bending Rodriguez base
Smooth bending up to 90 degrees
Someone will notice his last name on the headtube. 29er frame in progress
5 front triangles mitered, seat tube inserts welded in
Waiting for the rear ends
The road bike waiting for some parts to be installed and set up
One of our upcoming frames is a 29er with bent seat tube and top tube. We used to bend before at an old shop but here at our new shop don't have a bender for large tubes. So we had to make one.
We bought a HUGE chuck of steel at the local port.
It is ugly, it's just raw steel. 60 KILO of steel. Heavy.
iPhone for size comparison
Our lathe operator Nikolay is machining holders to install that steel chuck on a lathe
Aligning the holder
Four people need to load that thing on a lathe. It looks like a wheel from Flinstones' cars :)
First cutting cycles
A few minutes later it starts to shine.
It's good steel and we plan to buy more of those
Huge bender story to be continued..
Sasha installed Paragon flanged DT Swiss 142x12mm dropouts on a dummy axle we made last week. I asked him to smile for MTBR :)
29er frame for a Polish customer in progress. It will take wide tires.
We machined simple centering tools to fasten the alignment process. We introduce new tooling and try to tune every aspect which results in quicker frames turnover with more precision.
Centering the chainstay mitering fixture with the milling machine
Chainstays ready to be mitered for BB shell
Centering seatstay mitering fixture with a vertical mile
Seat stays mitered!
Chainstays installed on a jig, attached to the front triangle
29er frame in a jig
29er frame tacked
Checked crankset clearance with the XT 3x10
Machined our own hourglass type rack mounts for a customer who bought Triton Valit 29er (see previous work in progress).
Which means we just sold our first standard frame and we plan to build more of those!
PostMount checked with the real brake. Enough space to weld on rack mounts.
More to follow next week!
I'd +rep you for every porn session like this one but it says I have to spread it more..
^ Done it for you :thumbsup: It's so nice to see the details that go into producing these lovely custom frames.
things are looking great. looks like it is all coming together nicely for you. hard work, but you are doing a very good job. frames look great
