    I am fine.

    I have just had the same on a Russian forum. Someone's response was: "I was looking through the nice photos and then the fight began. It lasted for like 5 pages and I was sick clicking "next page" till I saw more nice photos of the works in progress "

    No, they are not bankrupt. They are owned by Ideation and have plans to return.

    The fatbike frame is mine. The rear end was tricky, as I wanted to fit the wider fat tyres (4.8") on 80mm wide rims. Something All the big fatbike manufactures had to take time to work out the best solution to. The current fat chainline doesnt give you much breathing space. Which is why 186mm hubs are on their way.

    I think it looks amazing both asthetically, and technically. Cant wait to recieve it, build it up, and start riding it. I have a modified lefty for it. So it'll get near 100mm of front squish too.

    If the geo looks odd. Thats because I'm only 5'7"

    Thanks. Keep up the good work. Your stuff is beautiful! I can't even imagine how challenging it has been for you to get where you are at.

    My Triton HT is finally put together and operational. I'll draft up a full review with pictures and the entire experience with D, but for the mean time, I'll just say I am more than pleased with the frame.

    Theres a thread with more pics here:

    Custom Triton Ti fatbike

    Its going to be a beast. I just need to make sure I push the bikes limits. I usually off-road on a rigid SS 29er. So I'm going to need to up my game.

    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...

    I'd have to say that looks quite a bit nicer than Moot's approach. =D

    More media!

    These are photos of the first days of March.

    I was out in Israel for 4 days, showing Triton frames to local riders.
    Got orders and generally like the idea. Many people have never touched a Triton frame so they are not sure. Once they see - they like.
    I have an idea for a Triton road show. Visiting towns in Europe, showing bikes and frames. Have to work this out.

    Okay. Time for photos.

    Finally sorted out the filling for the tubes. Bending in progress.
    Will be making 3 more benders on a CNC machine later on.



    Slight bend for a 29er seat tube




    26" XC frame in progress




    29er frame




    Direct FD mount









    Sexy



    Large 49.6mm headtube for tapered fork. Now we also offer a smaller 44mm option.






    Fattie. Waiting for the bead glass to arrive and decals to be blasted









    Checking fork crown clearance. All good.



    Nikolay made a stem fixture. We shall be making first couple of stems soon. Pictured - the one with Paragon clamps. Really top quality parts.



    29er bike for a customer from Zurich, Switzerland



    LARGE



    Direct FD. Nice and simple. And no possible conflict with the water bottle mounts





    Light 29er frame in progress



    Air compressor installed



    Frame loaded in the bead blasting chamber as a reference for chamber size



    The whole thing with filters and bead recuperating system



    Hand brushing





    26" frame coming up





    Nikolay made up stem-handlebar combo fixture

    Benders? Did I just read benders?
    That's a good new for me... if you manage to bend properly a 38mm tube, of course.

    Why the need for such a massive headtube? Wouldn't a 44mm be enough?

    At the time we were making this frame, we still had neither the tubing for 44mm headtubes nor the tooling (reaming and facing and fixture mount).
    Now we have it all and already building three frames with 44mm headtubes.

    The customer loves it!

    Here's me testing it

    Has Triton made a 29er with the following specs:

    Chainstay 420-440mm
    140mm front fork
    330mm BB (from ground to center)
    609mm ETT
    18" ST

    But straight top tube rather than bent?

    Basically, a Carver Ti 420 without the bent top tube, and better standover or... a Kona Honzo in titanium?

    The Honzo, YelliScreamy, Nimble 9 are all great bikes, but they are also considerably heavier at 2.75kg. That's heavier than most aluminum full suspension bikes with 160mm travel!

    A Ti Honzo would be awesome. Kona really hit the mark with that one.

    My Yelli Screamy weigh's in at 24.2 lbs 1x10, at 650.00 for the frame it can't be beat. The frame is built like a tank, that's where the weight comes from.

    Yelli is also aluminum, which is good for weight, but so-so for compliance. I'm a heavier rider so it wouldn't matter much.

    Thing is the Yelli-Screamy is also built around 100-120mm fork.

    People are running it with a 140mm just fine.

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

    Wow, the seat & chain stay on that 29er look great! Looks like a complete different frame from what Triton used to build.

    Let's see some of the fat bikes built up.
