    Big time!

    Nice to see things are going good!

    Love my 29er ... starting to beat the snot out of it ... will do a ride report shortly ... hopefully your frames only continue to get better ... and better.

    Andy


    Maybe will see some Triton components now? (seatposts, bars)

    Thanks Andy!
    Looking forward to see the photos!

    The new production place will provide more possibilities.
    It will let us build frames faster, combining the power of two production sources.
    At the moment the waiting time is quite long...

    We do offer non-riser handlebars and bar+stem combos now!

    Another good news: PayPal has announced that on September 24th they are going to unlock the ability to receive funds for Russian citizens. Woohooo!
    So far all the PayPal payments to Triton have been forwarded to my German partner first. The update will speed up the whole ordering process.

    Brilliant, seems like you will have some new possibilities with that new workshop. Glad to see your business expanding! What is your main limiting factor today - welding, designing or tubes/material?

    Thanks Erik!

    We are limited on production turnaround speed because we only have one jig/one main welder at a current place. And customers have to wait for quite a bit.

    We will not be making anything dramatically different at the new place. But yes, it should give more possibilities. Eg while one jig is used for building an ordered frame, another can be used for prototyping new ideas.
    Plus Anvil fixtures offer a bit more freedom.

    I am also planning to expand the production to car offroad equipment (expedition racks/rocksliders/bumpers/protection, etc). As I am travelling with my Land Rover a lot and find current parts too expensive or too heavy or useless

    Вторую раму (стритово-триальную) обязательно покажите потом в готовом виде. Любопытно, как будет смотреться в реале место стыка верхней трубы, подседелки и перьев.

    Basically dom1n1k asked me to share a photo of a finished street-trials frame pictured above (half of a frame on a jig). He is interested how the top tube/seat tube/seat stays junction would look when done.

    Remember that light street bike in raw finish?



    The customer asked me to powder coat it into blue and here is a short video

    <iframe width="560" height="345" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/u45FM7G2Kp4?hd=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    And this is how it looks now.

    Hi, if i'm not wrong, i think Cane Creek does have a shock that can be used for a soft-tail design. I remember reading about it. I will try to see if i can find a reference to it...

    Yes, that is used on the Siren Song: Song 29

    I think I need a new softtail another day... The issue there is often lateral stiffness though.

    Wow! The polished decals look sweet!
    I like the way they look around the bottom bracket area

    Seatposts???

    My Triton frame is in need of a seatpost.

    Any luck with a 27.2 layback seatpost in the near future???

    Nice work on the bar stem combo Dmitry. Are the stem clamps threaded, or is it for use with a nut and bolt combination?

    Also, hypothetically, would you consider using a similar design in combination with an ebb, so split shell, as opposed to pinch bolt, like the one on Seatboy's OS Bikes Blackbuck below?

    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    The stem clamps are M6 threaded, yes.
    Just like the bearing holder of this Triton unicycle




    Never considered a split shell really.
    There's a risk of a clamp weld to crack..

    And when the shell is one piece it just can't happen. Different forces applied on a clamp. This is when Paragon system is used.

    And the safest one is the Bushnell

    Thank you for your reply Dmitry. All ebb's have their downsides I suppose, most caused by improper setup and over-tightening. I believe that the split shell (which is used on the Ti Singular Pegasus 29er) would be the most unlikely ebb system to be affected by ovalising or creaking. Your mention of possible clamp welds cracking is the first I've heard of, but keep in mind that I'm not a welder of any sort.

    Keep up the good work. All your customers on here have nothing but praise for your frames.

    I just read this whole thread. I must say your frames look very very nice. If i could ever pony up the money I just might have to look into getting one. If you ever get into the soft tail's that would be even better.

    Yes, I have Paragon sliders here with the belt drive seat stay separator.
    The frame is being designed right now for an Australian customer.

    Will be sharing the media once we start building this frame.

    Awesome. I had a mate ask me the question as he was considering a Blacksheep belt drive frame. I showed him your work and he was impressed. He liked the raw finish, as do I. He does also like the swoopy style of the Blacksheep though.

    I dig the pic with the vernier calipers, I mostly use dial but swap to digitals when reading metric, as a 16 year machinist I am always suprised at how many in my field can't read verniers lol but I started on them.

    Hello world!

    Haven't posted here for some time.
    Working hard!

    Here is the latest 24" street-trials frameset that's on its way to States.

    The frame downtube is an oversized 44mm.
    The fork legs are 34mm which is the largest ever tubing we used for forks.
    It affected the weight a bit - same fork made out of 32mm tubing comes at 710 grams. This one is 756.
