    You can use bigger tubes. You can use seat and chain stay yokes. There's ways around it.

    It was from a pretty well known brand, unfortunately.

    Your sample size of 1 hardly proves out widespread shipping in this manner so I have to agree, obvious troll is obvious.

    Those seat stays and the junction with the seat tube are totally different on that bike. Which helps prove my point. Moots knows how to do it right. Triton will learn, like everyone else does, from trial and error.

    That's the first thing people do when they know they are wrong. make personal attacks.

    lol,it was an attack onn a crappy bike brand. one that went under because they couldn't keep up with the times. you're the guy trolling a forum slagging their bikes regarding their packaging in the most retarded way possible. i'd love to know who, besides the one company you know of who ships their bikes not in a box?

    and without riding their fat bike and not knowing their tube wall thickness, your comments on their bikes flexiness is pure trolling as well. thanks for the neg rep too. that proves more than anything you're a d00sh

    i stand by my comments that mountain cycles are one of the fugliest bikes known to man. that's my personal opinion on them and i didn't even troll their old forum to say so.

    and since i haven't ridden their fat bike, i'll reserve calling it stiff or flexy. i'll wait till someone with ride time tries one.

    See how the seat stays are welded at almost a 90 degree angle to the seat tube? That going to make those two junctions really weak, especially with the seat stays as straight as they are. Those seat stays will break pretty easily at the seat tube. A gusset in between would help fix that.

    1. Packing.
    We have done it both ways: shipping in a box and most often like pictured above, in a strong foam + tape. We put a strut between the dropouts.
    I have had two cases with the frames scratched/damaged.
    We solved that.

    We can ship in a box. It's the customer who can make the choice.
    But this is international shipping and the cardboard box isn't light at all. Shipping fees will increase. By about 60%.

    2. Fat bike. Maybe you haven't noticed, but there is gusset between the stays on a finished frame...

    GFY, even a blind mouse finds something to eat. You commented on a pic of an unfinished frame and then stumbled into fortuitous to support what you have no idea about in the first place.

    You're only 25% right, the rest you got lucky on so take a high hard one where the sun never shines.

    There was your chance to apologize to triton for talking out your a$$. Instead you decide to pat yourself on the back for something they were already doing without any input from you. Great job genius

    I have had our engineer Andrey make a 3D model of that, working this frame out and stress testing it.
    It's our first fatty but we did think a lot before actually starting to make it.

    Of course it would be a lot more flexy without that brace.

    Made a couple screenshots of a 3D

    It's obvious, that you didn't know any better or you would have schooled me instead of attacking me.

    Explaining anything to you would be a futile exercise.

    Triton Bikes. Titanium frames handmade in Russia. Anyone? :)

    Writing from my phone.

    So I went down to the shop (it's 2am here) and took photos.
    We now machine wooden/plastic inserts for bb/seat tube/headtube.
    I have had one case when foam was damaged and headtube damaged. And another case when headtube got scratched.

    So we put these now.

    Btw, of course the shipping people know it's a frame, it's written on the invoice.
    But I use a trick so they don't check it online.

    Ps: guys please stop the fight. Who needs it here?

    ^ I call it constructive criticism. That's one reason why this place is here.

    Please Triton, If you feel any different, let me know.

    Constructive criticism is only that when it is warrented. It isn't in this case. Triton did their homework and somehow you feel your trol job has anything to do with it. Weird. They seem to be plugging along just fine without you yet the company you model your user name on is bankrupt. That isn't surprising.
