    Very interesting!

    Looks like weight will be way back, almost over the rear-axle, but that's the beauty of custom eh? Customer gets what they want

    Chain stays are near horizontal in the pic. I think the frame will be angled much more forward when built up. Especially as it is a 29er.

    I hope the seat stay to seat tube juncture is better in reality than it looks in the last picture. It must be an optical illusion that makes it look like it is only half welded.

    Well, the geometry was what the customer wanted it to bee.

    I just noticed what you mean about seat stay/seat tube juncture. It's fully welded, I would never let the unwelded frame out. You would never see such a photo.
    That's a film artefact left after welding that can be easily removed.

    Thanks for your comment!

    I like the finish but it doesn't look as clean as the brushed finishes I have seen on other manufactures frames. Is that frame completely finished? there is a lot of discoloration by all of the welds and the cable guides and the BB yolk Is that easily cleaned up?

    can you show examples of your different finished I checked the website but it doesn't state the different bare finishes like brushed and raw or sand blasted.

    Hi Ti Tank,
    I have been offering hand brushing for a couple of months now. I understand what you mean about discoloration and I have seen this on other frames (Italian). But top brands offer clean looking brushed frames, I agree.
    The customer liked the finish of the pictured frame.

    But I was also a bit worried and could predict questions like yours. Looks like I have finally found here in Russia materials needed to achieve clean looking brushed finish. I do not have any media on that yet. But I will be sharing it soon.
    Hand brushing is quite a time consuming activity Takes me hours..

    Thanks for all your questions. It pushes further the development of our products.

    Below are the photos of the sand blasted finish. This has always been the default finish and we are experienced with it.

    One customer has recently ordered a frameset with the completely raw finish (we left all the welding discolorations). It will be laquered next week and I can share the photos here.

    Thanks

    Thanks, Im a professor at a local university and the owner of Bike shop in town just mentioned your company to me last week and said he was getting a frame in for his shops trials team and that he was thinking about offering your frames for custom builds like mine. Cant wait to see your stuff.

    People have different preferences when it comes to finish. I recall Brant Richards had to do some persuation to get the Ragley titanium frames finished raw enough but not too raw at Lynskey

    Im looking for a frame that I can custom size but finish is very important as well, So Im not sure what RAW entails or what it exactly looks like. For what I want durability and the ability to take care of minor blemishes on my own will dictate finish.

    I will keep on posting interesting frames we build.

    I will be hand brushing a frame, fork and a stem tomorrow. Will share photos here later.
    I should get a nice camcorder to record the videos of the process. The cameraphone makes very low quality vids.

    Nice looking unicycle frame. Are you going to sell through Unicycles.com?

    Either way, could you PM a quote?

    I sell directly or through my German partner, Joachim Pfender (he holds a stock of unicycles).
    http://ridetriton.com/unicycle.htm

    I spoke to the Unicycle.com guys about a year ago. But since the frames' production cost is very high and the margin is low, our items are not very attractive to large retailers.

    Anyways, there's a test unicycle at the UK branch:
