    Ahhh...I spy the bent seat tube for a 29er in the top pic perhaps?
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Hi Brett,

    As I said in my email, we do not offer aluminum frames.
    Currently we offer titanium frames and will be offering steel frames in near future.

    Got back from Saint Petersburg!

    Brought the lower part of my alignment table.
    Weight 300 kg.

    The city and suburbs are beautiful!



    The table was too large so I had to remove plastic panel and the wiper from the rear door of my Landy.
    Car got very dirty after a 10 hour drive.




    YES!


    10 hour drive in the night. Morning. Back to Moscow. Unloading the truck.


    Fixed!



    Did some riding tests

    Installed the Anvil frame and fork jigs.
    Testing them out, getting used...










    And also...I got married this Saturday! YES!

    And of course we are wearing titanium rings.

    Wow!

    Seems like alot is happening now at Triton and with you.

    Tell me if I am right ...

    From the looks of it, you seem to be taking Triton all in house. By that I mean you will be designing and building the frames all in one place. No longer will you be using an outside company to manufacture your frames?

    Best of luck and congrats!

    Thanks Andy!

    With the rising number of frames ordered I will be combining the powers of two factories to build frames in a quicker way (say trials frames at the current factory and XC/29er in house). I will be making a line of standard frames too.

    I got a very profecient welder at my new place and I ordered a number of Paragon steel dropouts that just arrived from States. We will make a number of steel prototype frames too.

    I am on my honey moon now.

    Double congratulations, to marriage and to the new welder. Very interesting with steel and the line of standard frames also! What kind of frames will that be?

    Hi.

    and congratulations!

    I've sent an enquiry, for a fatbike (snowbike) frame, to several of your E-mails that I have found. Sorry to spam your inboxes. Especially now that I see you're on your honey moon. I just was'nt sure which was current. Sorry again, and hopefully I'll here from you after you get back.

    Have a nice time!

    I find myself desiring a titanium unicycle, running 4" husker du tires, on 80mm rims.

    I need to get off this thread......

    Hi Lee!

    No problem!
    I was on my way back home while I got your messages. We moved all the time so I could not respond you properly with a cell phone.
    We are back safe to Moscow and I am now responding to all the emails I got!

    Hi Dimitry.

    Hope you and your wife had a nice time!

    I imagine you have a ton of stuff to get through. So I'll try and be patient
    I've been looking into Triton cycles quite heavily over the last few days, and I have to say it all looks great. Especially the bikes.

    Cheers

    Paragon Machine Works introduced postmount (PM) compatible inserts for their Slider and Rocker dropouts.
    Thus we can now offer PM mounts for Triton frames.

    PM mounts with fixed dropouts will be introduced later.
    Will make a custom fixture.

    Those look like a great option.

    Is there any reason to choose rockers over sliders or vice versa?

    Beautiful frames and pics...

    I aspire to own one of your Triton uni frames before too long. The bike frames look very sweet as well. Keep up the great work, and congrats on your marriage!

    Sliders offer more CS adjustment length.
    Rockers offer lower disc brake mount wich is better for those who use racks. Some people just feel safer when the caliper is inside the rear triangle.
    At the same time Rockers offer less adjustment.

    Just spent a fair amount of time reading up on this on framebuilding forums. Loads of intensive engineering reading, and basically you summed it up.

    Sounds like PM is the way to go if dont want a 140mm rear disc. For a fatbike build you want your components out of harms way. So the rocker sounds like a good option for this sort of bike. Add to that rack use and its a no-brainer.

    In which case I'd like to change my order details to include these if possible. I wont trouble with yet another E-mail for this detail though.

    SF, you know the pic you've linked to is the Rocker version without the rack/guard mounts? They are on the dropout themselves and then the inserts are all interchangeable. I have a set of the dropouts and then two sets of inserts, one for Rohloff use and one for geared use.

    That said the Rocker dropouts seem to be selling out as fast as Paragon produce them. For me the 17mm of adjustment is plenty but then I've designed my chainstay lengths to maximise the benefit from that range. As in, there's no point in having the CS length from 440-457mm if you're only ever going to run at 450+, if you know what I mean.

    Aesthetically I disliked the sliders and, on a previous frame, opted for a mini EBB rather than go with them. Whereas the Rockers do the job as well but actually look good, or at least to me

    I was thinking of a center spot of 452mm. So 444mm to 460. I might need the 460mm for Big fat larry clearance. But I would also like to be able to shorten my wheelbase, with slightly smaller tires. Its 4mm shorter than a Pugsley up to 4mm longer than a Mukluk.

    My lower rack mounts will be on the seatstays. This seems to be the best way to fit a rear rack onto a fatbike.

    Received some goodies from Paragon.

    Steel and titanium dropouts.
    Damn, how much heavier the steel ones are!

    Steel headtubes (44mm) and BB shells.
    I have most parts now, but we do not offer steel frames yet.



    Steel flanged track dropouts



    Headtube


    Titanium seatstay splitters for a belt-compatible fixed gear frame
    Very nicely machined. The parts just click one into another



    Disconnected



    Thanks!

    Looks like a lot of cool stuff coming.....

    When will you have some more 29ers to show ?
    Any chance of do a single speed with eccentric bottom bracket / split shell with pinch bolts like on my Specialized Stumpjumper ? My bike has been very quiet and reliable.

    Aha, so you were aware, just didn't want you ordering the wrong bit. Interesting on rack mounting for a fat bike, I had assumed you could use regular mounts but with the foot extensions, but I haven't looked into it. Any info you have on that would be useful.

    I haven't actually worked out my final rear geometry for my new 29er yet, the Rocker build I have is a touring Rohloff with chainstays from 438mm to 455mm. With a 44x16 combo that gives me a 50 link chain at approx 440mm. This works well for a 700x40 tyre and mudguards but gives me room to add a halflink or even a full link and get in a really big touring tyre. My current 29er is Rohloff as well but using a mini EBB and the chainstays are at 445mm. My calculations for the replacement are in two parts, firstly around my intended rohloff gearing and avoiding using a half link. The second bit is looking into clearance and geometry for me, so your calcs above are of interest.

    I'm thinking I want to go above 445mm as a starting point, based on clearance, type of riding, rohloff weight and I'm fairly tall. I only ride for fun and nothing especially challenging, more long XC than technical. I have my saddle up at 80cm from the BB and, combined with the rohloff, it does make me feel a bit rear heavy at 445mm. I run 38x16 and was thinking of starting the new 29er chainstays at 458mm out to 475mm. Solves any clearance issues for big tyres and gets my weight a bit further forward. Plus I'm getting older and comfort matters more than out and out performance these days.

    Would be interested in your experience, thoughts, on this side of things.

    Great thread this by the way, I love seeing these detailed pics of parts and builds in progress.

    Hello Dmitry, sent you an e-mail about a Ti stem/ handle bar. Don't suppose you could give me a
    ballpark price so I can get moving on it.
    Thanks

    Yeah, I appreciate you taking the time for the heads up

    When it comes to mounting racks or fenders on a fatbike. I get the impression its a trial and error thing. I've based my mount positions on existing bikes, so I could easier steal other fat bikers set ups

    When I sent Triton my specs. I had a handful things I thought could go wrong. Dmitry spotted these instantly without prompting. I'm only at the planning stage. But I have to say I'm very happy with my builder chioce so far.

    Sweeeet

    Wow, that 29er looks sweet .... 420 ... that is close to 16.5 inches .... what travel fork is this frame for?

    Way nice..
    Hope to see finished pictures.

    Fully rigid only, geometry is based a typical mid-length 26" fork with 425 mm A-C which just fits a 29er wheel (see picture - 29er in Salsa CroMoto 425).

    Being 26" inch forks, the rake is shorter (41 mm), so angles are adjusted for that.

    Very happy to see all this thinking and calculating finally becoming an actual welded frame!

    Why no Ti unicrown fork to match?

    edit...very keen to see/hear how the finished product handles, as it looks like a similar geo to what I would request. What's the HA?

    I did consider a matching custom fork in the beginning, but wanted to be able to use easily found standard forks of some kind. And also I am to be honest very scared of fork failure, and for some reason I feel safer on a heavy steel fork from a large volume manufacturer such as Salsa.

    But if I am not happy with how it feels with this fork, perhaps a bombproof custom Triton fork could be the solution later on.

    I have 70.5 deg HA, to get a quite short trail and not too much wheel flop, agile but not too nervous or race-like when using 41 mm rake.

    Designing a bike for a 5ft tall lady. It will be equipped with Sram X0, Fox fork, Avid Ultimates, Easton carbon fibre seat post and handlebar, and other nice parts.

    What do you think?

    I'd let my 5' wife ride that...not that she would take it on single track

    Why not? Too short?

    This bike is intended for recreational/light XC riding.

    5 foot isn't too short IMO. Single track would scare her. Especially after she sees how often I come home with damage to myself. She's fine on a wide bike path, providing that there's no sticks that she has to roll over.

    Steve! I did not mean your wife, I meant the frame
    This frame has quite a short ETT. The sitting position is short and high. More like a city bike, not very XC.

    lol...oops...that frame looks perfect for someone that height and is set up, like you suggested, for someone who hasn't much mountain biking experience. Bars are too high compared to the seat. But you knew that already. 530 ETT isn't bad for someone that height with short arms and torso. My perfect ETT would be around 570 with a short stem (70mm) and I'm 5'6".

    The bike looks spot on. Component wise I'd look into big sweep bars for such a high front end. I've just recieved some Jone cut-H bars, and they look spot on for my little arms. Plus I'd definitely check my crank length. Long cranks on a bike built for seated riding, will be annoying.

    Just my thoughts. Everything else looks great.

    hey Dmitry, the spec for the '5ft tall lady' that you posted above, is almost identical to the frame that I have just ordered from you too ... just that the seat post is longer, but otherwise the wheelbase is slightly shorter as my frame has a head angle at 71 ... so mine will the second smallest that you will have built??? ; )

    one thing that has just crossed my mind ... will my wife get toe rub from the front wheel if I am using 175mm cranks??? ... hopefully not!!! ... pls let me know the clearance between the toe and the back of the front wheel and the crank length that you are using once you have completed your build ... cheers

    Hi David,

    I also looked at your wife's frame when was designing that lady frame
    And I used 70 degree head angle in order to give more space to toes + add up ride stability.

    I will check out the toe overlap for your wife.
    What's her shoe size?
    We can discuss that over email.

    Thanks!

    Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to my customers, topic readers, and the whole MTBR community!

    Thanks for a nice and interesting year! You guys have been making my days

    Will be posting photos of a recent bike made as a birthday present.
    It's got a custom paint scheme with decals under matte laquer.

    This bike is a birthday present. My customer ordered it for his friend.
    The idea was to paint it in matt olive green to match...friend's house interior color scheme!
    So basically I went there while he was out and took photos of the walls

    It was a pain to match the colors and they loved it in the end.
    I will have to take a photo of a bike standing against the wall.

    The frame is 18" XC 26er with oversized 44mm downtube (the rider isn't a light guy), oversized stays and Paragon breezer dropouts with replaceable hanger.

    We did complete painting procedure at my friend's car painting chamber, used best equipment available.
    Andrey, the painter has done numerous motorcycle design paintings and enjoyed working with a bicycle frame.

    I now offer custom paint job service, but it was quite expensive since we used expensive Sikkens paint (used for painting F1 cars) and it takes hours to complete.

    The wall



    The frame




    Masking out headtube




    Andrey degreasing the frame




    Base coat applied





    Applying olive green




    Stencil applied. Вовик is the guy's name in Russian




    Masked out



    Silver metallic applied




    Nice...



    Then matte laquer applied and we let the frame dry at 60 degrees Celsius for half hour.
    Then I took it to Moscow's best bike mechanic Varava. I have known him for 15 years and he had built all my bikes.




    Finished!
    Exclusive and the same time simple all-round XC bike for a birthday present.







    Nice and smooth Paragons



    Thanks!

    Very nice Dimitry but what's up with the reflectors on the wheels?

    Can't wait until mine is finished (29 XC with sloping top tube and revolution and hammer and sickle)

    Wow, frame looks amazing and you continue to "one-up" yourself.
    What does a heavier-duty frame like that weigh ?

    Remember that semi raw semi bead blasted trials frame?




    My customer has built it up!

    Compared to his previous bike:
    this new bike is at least 10 times better
    totally awesome
    high bb needs some time getting used to, but still it rides like a goddess

    Evgeny, a friend of mine who is an engineer, is joining Triton soon. He will be preparing drawings for customers and technical drawings for the actual build (those drawings mean more angles and a lot more other tech data).

    He is preparing a drawing of an all round/AM/Trail bike for my dad.











    Work in progress:

    Seriously? These bikes are freaking sweet. Any chance you'll be bringing any to Italy any time soon? I'd love to see them in person.

    If I break my 29er at Iron Bike Italy, I know where my next rig will be coming from.

    I may be going to Italy in summer (by car) and could take my bike with me.
    I studied in Bologna and was even considering moving to Italy (both life and production) but a bit more south than Bologna

    Wanted to visit Bike Machinery Srl to buy some tools.

    with your frames ?

    I wish I could attend. Very interested. I have the visa and I can put the bikes in the car and just drive there and rent a booth.
    But we expect a baby around this time + I do not have new bikes available to show. Fully busy now serving customers, no time to make bikes for myself

    May try to attend Bike Expo in Germany if they make it. And of course dreaming to attend Interbike and especially NAHBS to see all the great people creating the best bikes and equipment: Jones, Strong, Anvil, Vertigo, Eriksen, Moots, etc etc etc

    After reading the complete thread, it is the first time I am tempted to order a titanium bike! They look amazing.
    With the risk of being flamed here, never considered try to lighten the frameset with for instance a carbon seattube like the IF factory specials. Then my frame would be ordered tonight

    Sweet looking 29er frame with bent TT. Any pics of finished bike? That looks just like a build I almost went with. Opted for the road bike instead. Maybe in the future you'll be making a FS 29er? Cross my fingers. Keep up the good work!

    Since most Triton frames are shipped overseas and there is a risk of damage, I decided to make simple inserts.
    An insert will protect frame stays making the package very stiff.

    Bought a 1 meter long stud and cut it in 160mm pieces with a lathe.
    Added screws and washers.

    Voila! Frame protected.

    It added up some weight to the package.
    And I am free to any lighter solutions.
    What do you think?
    Bicycles coming from China have plastic inserts but they are mostly for forks.
    I should probably find them online, but no luck on that yet.

    My dad also suggested machining them out of wood

    Anyway, this CX frame was shipped to Canada with the Soviet style insert
    All frames will now be shipped with such inserts, whatever type I use...

    Thanks! This is basically what comes with the Chinese frames.
    Shipping those to Russia would be quite costly. But I will take it into consideration.

    The steel version I made is cheaper and very Sovietique
    But a bit ghetto too.

    Which one would you like to see on your frame?

    Oh, I'm going real steel all the way! Wasn't sure if the plastic ones would be cheaper for you or not.
    How are you coming on my frame? Is it on the design board yet? Love all the new equipment in your shop!

    I do not trust this kind of combo.
    This is my personal opinion as a bicycle rider.

    I can see a carbon fiber frame or a titanium frame.
    But a glued frame...

    Yeah, I gotta agree on this one.
    I have an all-carbon frame, now I want to add an all-titanium frame........not some hybrid.

    Absolutely beautiful frames on here. The titanium alloy is different from 6/4 or 3/2.5 right?

    Shipping those to Russia would be quite costly. But I will take it into consideration.

    Which one would you like to see on your frame?
    The advantages of plastic and wood. Are that they are, cheap, very quick to install, are light, and if they do loosen, then start moving around. They will not scratch the frame.

    I suspect that price, and installation time is a real economic factor if you are a high producer like Giant, or Merida.

    Personally, I'd like idea that someone took the time securely screw on a steel protector. It adds a little icing to the custom build cake.

    Don't want cheap Chinese plastic on my soviet frame! Threaded bolt for me.

    Hope mine is in the works (Revolution)! Wish I could get Russian font on this iPad.

    My friend and customer Oleg has moved to London to work and took his Triton with him.
    He took some nice photos

    By the way, everything I post here, I also post at Triton Bikes blog.
    And photos are now uploaded to tritonbikes.com hosting so they should load better for western viewers, especially from the US and Canada since I use a US based hosting provider.

    Woohooo!

    Postman brought today a batch of Paragon dropouts.
    - Wright dropouts with replaceable derailleur hanger
    - Flat slider dropouts
    - Rocker dropouts with postmount (PM) disc brake mount (NEW!)

    I decided to have Paragon wright dropouts available in stock. So no need to wait before they are delivered.

    I want to reconfirm that we do accept PayPal payments now.
    Thanks PayPal for letting it work in Russia!

    Haha, I wish I knew who you were
    Because here at MTBR we have nicknames and during email conversations we use names.
    Is this Deniz or Paul?
    If so then yes, I did.

    I am responding to all the emails shortly anyway.
