No-tanium more like! Its a joke price. Nostalgia is a funny thing, I sold my Timberline and missed it like hell for no good reason. The guy who bought it came to show it to me once. i didnt recognise it at all and he hadnt done anything but take care of it, same bike, same components etc. Nostalgia? more like neuralgia! 😉Posted 6 years agoTurnerGuyMember
Ritchey Nitanium ?
Niobium is an effective microalloying element for steel. Adding niobium to the steel causes the formation of niobium carbide and niobium nitride within the structure of the steel. These compounds improve the grain refining, retardation of recrystallization, and precipitation hardening of the steel. These effects in turn increase the toughness, strength, formability, and weldability of the microalloyed steel. Microalloyed stainless steels have a niobium content of less than 0.1%. It is an important alloy addition to high strength low alloy steels which are widely used as structural components in modern automobiles. These niobium-containing alloys are strong and are often used in pipeline construction.
