    Real life delivery times....

    I am close to pulling the trigger on a custom Triton frame, but there seems to be a large difference in reported delivery times and experienced delivery times.

    Triton is quoting 4-6 months, but it appears to be taking significantly longer, 8-12 months, when you look through the posts on this thread.

    Can anyone comment on their actual wait time for their frame? Thanks.

    Hi Vegard,

    Will get back to you by email.
    Sorry about this.
    Basically we had moved most of our production in house and thus the wait times on certain frames increased.

    You ordered a trials frame and I still have two of them to be made including yours.
    We first set up production to make XC 26 and 29" and road frames because they are currently the main scope. And we are shooting out these types of frames a lot quicker now.
    As for the trials frames, I have stopped taking orders on them because I wasn't so sure about wait times.
    I will have it sorted. I don't like such messages on MTBR as you may guess.

    True, there were a quite a few orders where customers had to wait quite long.
    Most of this due to our move to a new shop. I have been working hard on it for the last 6 months and currently XC and especially road frames are built quite fast.

    Still, there are/were some types of frames that have taken longer:
    - Frames with bent tubes in front triangle. We have designed and machined benders and still working on bending techniques so two frames had to wait for it.

    - Fat bikes. we are now making one frame and it has taken long because there had to be a lot of new tools machined. In progress now. Still many tricky clearance issues, once solved will be a lot easier to make.
    - Frames with 44mm headtubes. Three frames waiting, already sorted, finally found proper supplier for tubing and machining them now, will share photos later in the week.

    The road frames so far are the quickest to appear due to little to none bending and fewer clearance issues.

    As mentioned above I have paused taking orders on trials frames because I do not want customers to wait.

    Half a year ago waiting time was longer than expected. Every week we make something new that updates the wait time statistics.

    My guys are now working faster than the engineers can make the drawings. I have four people helping me with drawings. Two guys specialize in 29ers, one guy is into 26" XC and street/pump frames and one ex Boeing engineer helps us work out new frame types such as fatbike frames and also he designs little parts like dropout bullets and new dropouts.

    We don't have a 20 year history yet, we are quite young and my aim is to make it work nicely and smoothly.

    PS: Will process and post some photos of work in progress January.

    Thanks,

    Dmitry

    12 months for a custom frame is more than acceptable IMHO. Probably best not to base expectations on old thread posts.

    I've been recieving frequent up dates, with lovely pics and diagrams. I certainly have no complaints.

    Anyway. Lets have some shiney titanium media.

    Thanks guys! The more we work, the more happy comments will appear.

    Now, 40 photos.

    32mm bender completed



    Testing and adjusting it now. This bender will allow us bend seat tubes and some of the top tubes



    Road frame being born



    Tacking







    Road frame



    Headtube welds right after welding



    M sized road frame for a light person 3.018 lbs



    Hand brushing



    Night time at Triton



    Back to work!



    Mitering tubes



    Day at Triton



    29er frame in progress





    We have had some massive snowstorms in Moscow. The traffic jams are killing, we outsource bead blasting now and I couldn't get out of the office to another town to take 5 frames for bead blasting. Time to build our own bead blasting box.

    That's a lot of snow outside.











    Chainstays mitering





    Paragon disc brake bridge on a road frame



    Making integrated seat collar for a 29er frame







    While waiting for new drawing we made a shaker that is used by divers to communicate underwater. Fully titanium.











    Paragon low mount dropouts arrived.
    This will be a nice touring 29er frame



    We had one piece of each dummy axle size.
    Now there is one frame being welded and another frame being checked for alignment, so we needed extra dummy axles.
    Nikolay machining new ones.



    Done! Ice!



    Hey, it looks like a 29er frame behind the bushes





    Good one



    44mm headtubes in production now!



    This one will be used for a street bike for our customer from Singapore.
    The next 44mm headtube for an XC 29er will have some curves and thinner wall.




    More to come!

    Sorry, what is Triton's design philosophy to ensure that the ride is compliant but at the same time power transfer is not wasted in a flexy frame?

    Been trying to email Dmitry several times but no response. He has been quick in the past, has the email address changed?

    Hope that meteor missed the factory!

    For some reason I just saw this thread; these are beautiful frames......nice work.

    Unfortunately I'm not in the frame market right now as I have one already slated for a build right now, but when I go 29er....I may have to give these a serious thought.

    Keep the pics coming.

    My Triton continues to impress. I just found out (thanks to my 7 month old) that baby wipes really make the logos with the sandblast pop!

    Dmitry, I'm still looking forward to finishing off my bike with one of your seat posts.
    "Boom"........"Regard me".

    Hi guys!

    Yup, I have been out of work for a while.
    Now back and been busy. I have quite a lot of media to share.
    Too bad we have our fast internet down right now for a few days, should be fixed on Monday. And then I can share the media.

    Some happy news!
    A number of my customers had to wait extra time lately for their frames to get bead blasted or decals bead blasted on their brushed frames. Total of 7 frames got "stuck" because we have been outsourcing the bead blasting and the guys ran out of bead (micro glass balls).
    Some frames got 3 weeks late.

    So we thought we shouldn't outsource it anymore.
    Spent over $11k on a huge compressor and bead blasting chamber with filters and recuperating system. Already got the compressor and waiting for the bead blasting chamber delivery early next week.
    This will make us more independent and fast.

    More to come!

    Dmitry
