Please show me your Ti 29ers – I get mine later this week and am sooo excited.
My Pegasus in various guises (and also a lesson in how to make a pretty frame look minging, but it’s functional ok?!)
Just built, 1×9 mode…
singlespeed mode in Wales…
Road mode for Oxford-Cambridge-Oxford ride (fully geared with Paselas and aero bars)…
Bivi trip mode…Posted 7 years ago
in half fat mode with 26″ at either end ….
unfortunantly i bent my fork steerer at weekend – so really need brant to bring out the ragley fork 😉
ti frame beats my carbon race bike into a cocked hat feels more stable and i swear thats what makes it seem faster – seems more planted over bumps and the rough stuff – while accelerating just as quick !
only about half a pound in it when both are set up ss ….
tempted to sell my race bike !Posted 7 years ago
i currently have a ragley td-1 which i run ss alfine or 1 x9 depends on what and where we are riding,,
I am impressed by this bike and the 29er format so i have just sent a set of drawings off to get a ti 29er built
very short chainstays (for a 29er )
huge mud clearance 2.5 tyres with +10mm all around
new swapout dropout fixed for gears adjustable for ss hub
belt drive compatable
designed for 80-100mm travel forks
first prototype due in 4 weeksPosted 7 years ago
Ade – that sounds curiously like an e-stay 29er……
And if it is you’ll beat me to it you bounder!
Had a bit of a disaster with my homebuild – I was half way through a former to make a nice curve in the seat tube, then took a tumble on 1st Jan in Grizedale resulting in dislocated shoulder that took 10 hours to get back in. Lots of internal damage so no danger of using a hacksaw or torch anytime soon 🙁Posted 7 years ago
Mick r sorry to hear of your troubles,, and to make matters worse yes you are right,,Posted 7 years ago
i think it’s the best way to get very short chainstays and massive mud clearance ,,
it,s currently being built just hope the drawings i did were ok as getting a 2nd prototype built is not an option,,
Poo! It was my idea! (throws toys out of pram with one good arm)
Although somebody else did beat us to it with a 29er (but doesen’t look like they made the chainstays very short so not really sure what the point was) http://www.mrazek.com/29.html
Very brave to have something so unusual made far far away but I guess you have the experience to make it work – good luck and show us all the results. Are you using the same people as Spanner?
I’m still a little worried about catching heels on the stays. But if I screw up then have metres of spare Columbus cro-mo to play with and can melt them off and braze on some new ones 😉
How short? Mine should adjust down to at least 15.9″….
I was supposed to be riding it at SSEC but will now be a spectator (no idea if frame will be done)Posted 7 years agorclvpMember
Wow, Cheesy, that is an absolutely exquisite frame, who makes it?
I’m just build up a Ragley TD:1 with DT Swiss XRR fork, Kings Headset and hubs and Stans Crests, Full 2011 XTR 2×10 race groupset, Thomson finishing kit with an Answer bar and Gobi. So excited, I’ll get some pictures up. Marathon bike here we come.
Some beautiful fabrications in here.Posted 7 years ago
Mick i honestly havnt seen that bike before ,, a little dissapointed as there are some some simulatities ,,
but that seat stay what were they thinking they seemed to have gone out of their way to get the front mech geometry correct but ruined everything else, clearance, looks etc,, there are other solutions,,
it looks so 1990’s
my chainstay length is 16.41 (417) fixed then 417-437 adjustable
around 16 would be do-able but would lose clearance and i would struggle with front mech and triple setup on my design
i did have a last min panic over heal clearance but after measuring up my current bikes and a small change to the chainstays it should be sorted
i did speak to Lynskey in the us to build it they were up for it , but needed a min order of 15 ,, and certainly not in the position to do that ,, so now it has gone to the far east,, service is very good so far with very quick turnaround on changes
Mick my email is email@example.com lets chatPosted 7 years agoshortcutSubscriber
There is some nice kit there. Really looking forward to getting mine sorted. Will be posting a picture and ‘outing’ my purchase hopefully by the weekend.
I currently have a few people guessing on what I am getting so will keep it under wraps until then.
Can’t wait – expecting the call to say the frame is ready for me to pick up an time today!Posted 7 years ago
