    Yeah, from the far east. This opens up the ‘can of worms’ debate about whether Ti is Ti etc……

    My opinion is that it you’re going Ti you may as well go the whole hog and go expensive

    I’ve had some of their flat bars off ebay. They have been fine. Good finish, good service.

    Has anyone ever heard of the company youchase in regards to titanium cycling components? I recently came upon their products on ebay but I cant find a single thing about them. Before I decide to drop a $ I’d like to know what people think of the product. The price almost seems to good to be true. Is it?

    I bought a seat post off them. Nicely made and lovely welds – but bear in mind you get a matt Ti finish and not the shiny they show in the ads.

    If you want a Ti 31.6 seat post I’ve got one to sell, as I realised I need a lay back one – when I fitted it….

    Thanks Hamish I do actually like a mat Ti finish. Unfortunately I need a 27.2 and strangely all the Youchase products seem to have been removed of ebay now.

    According to Mark Lynskey Ti IS Ti:-

    “As to the raw materials; did you know that everybody’s starter materials (tube hollows) come from either Russia or China. Yes that includes Sandvick, Haynes, Wolverine, and Reynolds. Yes the tubes that these companies create using Chinese and Russian raw materials do in fact go to aerospace/defense use as well as bicycle frames (including ours). “

    The same happened to the cheapo Ti frames that were coming through Hong Kong. I think one of the industry “names” objected to being undercut by what was, basically, the same product at half the price.
