    Wittson Cross Country 29er Bestia Boost 159

    This beast is now shredding the hills, forests and country roads of Hungary. One of the sickest complete builds we've ever done.

    Very nice, welds look very even and clean. What sort of cost (US dollars) are you talking for a complete frameset? Can you explain why you did the seatstays to the top tube instead of the seat tube?

    Thanks!

    Price including our titanium fork, Chris King headset and Thomson seatpost clamp is 4199 USD. Price without the fork would drop to 3279 USD.

    The mini trip triangle design has more to do with aesthetics than ride quality. It does make the frame tiny bit stiffer, but not significantly.

    Thanks for the quick reply, was just curious and to be honest, have to say I did not expect you to be more than other well known US based custom builders. A rigid Ti is still my dream bike, at some point I'll be able to afford one, but right now, sadly, it's not in the books, will most likely stick to steel for the new while.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I don't know of any US framebuilder who would offer a CUSTOM build including titanium fork below 4k. Not the ones who actually build their frames in US :)
