  • Ti456- Why are people selling them? Whats ‘wrong’?
  • What made me smile was when TLR described how brilliant Brant was to have designed the bent top tube of the ti 456 to act like a leaf spring

    He was taking the piss with that comment wasnt he?

    fair point funkynick, and I was probably being overly harsh. I just think some people too easily repeat what the marketing says.

    What marketing was that?

    I would follow any marketing led/spoken by Swiss Tony..

    # Washing a car – Washing a car, is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. You’ve got to caress the bodywork. Breathe softly and gently. And give every inch of it your loving attention. And make sure you’ve got a nice wet sponge.
    # Laying a carpet – Laying a carpet is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. You check the dimensions, lay her out on the floor, pin her down, walk all over her. If you’re adventurous, like me, you might like to try an underlay.

    brant – sorry I wasn’t being specific about Ti 456s…just a general observation re bikes and marketing.

    Great thread.
    In my opinion it is a bike to enthuse about, and I’d agree with TLR, having previously owned a hummer, and also having owned a few ali hardtails in the past.

    So, using language that will hopefully be acceptable to people who find it easy to shoot down opinions and experience as marketing bullshit , here’s a review:

    the ti456 is flipping great. i love it and i’m not sellng it.

    Why is the top tube slightly curved on the 456? What’s the benefit?

    it acts as a leaf spring. 😆

    well **** me. Hora asks a dicky question, uses an inflammatorily framed title and gets 60+ replies. Hell, I’m sure he moonlights as a Daily Mail headline writer.

    hora’s the 456 marketing genius.
    i simply use engineering superlatives for descriptive administration 😯

    Another one definately not for sale here. I like the way it rides and prefer it to my old enduro. Have to agree to them looking a bit fugly but you don’t see the bent top tube when riding them. It replaced an aging well abused steel 456 and is somehow even more forgiving of my clumsy riding style.
    I think most of the marketing was done F.O.C by the reviews in the mags, that must have saved on-one a fortune.

    IMO Brant’s a legend for bringing a US made Lynskey frame to the masses for a grand. If the STW masses choose to hype it up as the next big thing, then rip it apart 12 months later then so be it. I’m pretty sure I’ll still be riding mine and loving it in 5 years time when everyone’s moved on to the next big thing. I’ve still got my Seven road bike and 4 years later haven’t been tempted by all the sexy CF stuff out there…if its good, its good!!! 🙂
