    working with a titanium frame

    I'd really like to fit a 650b into the rear tire well and put some disk tabs on my old titanium frame. I just need a little more clearance from the crossbar on the top of the rear tire well.

    Is it economically feasible to work/mod a titanium frame like this? I figure it's worth about 300 to me. Should I just get a new one?


    If anyone can do the work, please offer suggestions.


    Thanks

    I would have asked in the frame building forum.

    About $1000 buys you a Triton frame or a frame from China (current threads on both). Carver frames are around this price too.

    Older frames need forks with a shorter AC measurements meaning getting a new fork for you older frame can be difficult.

    Sell you current frame and buy a Triton.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    What ti frame are you referring to? What size tire do you plan for the rear. I know that 2.1 Quasimoto fits a lot more bike than the Neomoto. You may want to consider that too. That said $300 is not going to be enough to get the job done including disc tab.

    There's also habanero cycles to look at.
