Recommend me a Ti frame…
Never bought from the site. Was just pointed to it by the people who sold them on Ebay. Which I believe is were Druid bought his. They are all from the same factory in China. You can spec what you want on the frame. As I said before never had any dealings so not personally recommending. Druid seems very happy with his though… 🙂Posted 8 years ago
MT have you the scene from The Office when the IT geek pays a visit?
“You know when he’s fighting Chuck Norris in Enter the Dragon?”
“You not seen that?”
“Have you not, I can’t… that is a classic.”
“No, I’ve not seen him fight Chuck Norris in Enter the Dragon, I’ve seen him fight Chuck Norris in Way of the Dragon.”
“Ah, that’s what I meant, that’s what I meant.”
“Is it? Why did you say have you seen him fight Chuck Norris in Enter the Dragon? He fight’s Bob Wall in both, but Norris is only in Way of the Dragon.”
“Yeah, I know, so when he’s fighting Chuck Norris-”
“In Way of the Dragon.”
“Correct. At last.”

Bored at work and the “Are Alu hardtails still relevant” thread has got me thinking…
Having been a bit out of the loop for the past 18 months I dunno what the latest buzz is as far as Ti frames go. What is there at around about the grand mark? Can you get them for less now-a-days? Is it worth spending more? That sort of stuff, and if so, what?
Thinking maybe trade in my S-Works hardtail for something Ti and less overtly jeyPosted 8 years ago
mcboo – as a manufacturer with our own design office I’ll be pedantic, design/built himself but manufactured by others is significant. Especially when made by cheap labour in the fareast. I’ll give Mr Richards his due he does not make any claims about doing anything other than what he does, unlike some uk based “manufacturers”. To think we all worry about being unemployed, were did all the jobs go?Posted 8 years agojadMember
I got myself a VN Zion last year before the exchange rate was less attractive. I’ve been really impressed with it. I use it for the daily commute and fit mudguards & rigid fork during the winter. It’s also got mounts for a rack so I can go touring on it as well.
The Santa Cruz hasn’t seen any use for months – that’s how pleased I am with it.
It depends what you want – it ‘only’ takes a 100mm fork.

i got a second hand airbourne lancaster (zion) frame with lifetime warranty.
It had tatty decals, so i stripped it refinished it with scotchbrite, and reapplied some van nic decals, it came up as new.
didnt skimp on parts, the whole thing only cost about £1100, which is the same as most frames, ….
best bike i have ever built/ridden
