    New question here. Anyone have a VULTURE TI frame?

    I just noticed on their website that they build ti frames. Just curious if anyone has one or information on them, a picture would be awesome if possible?

    None exist as of this moment. I talked with Wade about owning ti Vulture #1, even went so far as to ask him to start on it as soon as he acquired the last of the ti frame building items he needed. That was a couple months ago. But then my money got tight and I realized that thirteen bikes aren't really any better than twelve... especially when my steel Vulture is everything I've ever wanted in a SS.

    But if I lacked a Vulture... I'd get one. And yeah, I'd make it a ti one.

    there is one actually

    I built a ti frame last year at UBI. I gave it to my ex wife the day I found out she was going to be my ex wife, bummer. Anyway, Im building another one right now, I got enought dough to get a tube set and the tools I needed to build it. I expect to finish the frame early july then you can see some pics. I really like working with Ti, I have been building some uni frames for my friend at Dirt Uni lately. When Im done with those projects, I will get my bike frame done. Also we hired a dude to dial in the website so finally that will be worth looking at.
    Cheers, Wade

    Hey Wade
    This is good to hear.
    FYI my Vulture 29er now holds the title of the longest lasting ss I've ever owned.
    Bianchi SiSS=3 weeks then cracked
    1x1=4 months then cracked
    Vulture=9 months and still going strong!

    Just got back from another ride aboard it and had a blast. Thanks for the good work.
