    italian titanium mtb, unknown fabricator, middle 90s

    hi all!

    a friend of mine bought this bike in the 90s.



    who is the fabricator of the frame? the frame should have been produced only 4 times. origin is italy.
    what can you say about the parts?

    Wow, wild seat cluster/lug. Appears to be a sleeved and bonded frame construction. Probably aluminum BB, seat cluster, head tube and drop outs with titanium tubes. No idea who would have made it.

    This is no Titanium, thats Titanal, was very commen here in Germany in the early 90s.

    Titanal is just Aluminium with a little Titan, Mag & Copper in it. It could not be welded, so they bonded it.
    The expensive frames out of titanal were ok but there were some very cheap models that broke very fast in normal use, so titanal lasted not very long for framebuilding.
