Looks nice and stout! I don't like how most ti bikes are built for lightweight and end up flexy for us big guys.

Try some bigger tires, you'll like them. I LOVE my Maxxis Ardent 2.4.

Very nice!

I wonder why there aren't more Russian Ti bikes? I thought the Russian were mining titanium like crazy these days.

LOL
Triton is only trademark, brand. And developer in some cases.
But real builder - Rapid. And it is Rapid too.

Yeah, I recognise the welds and dropouts. Eclipse Bicycles in canada had their Ti frames made by the same builder in Russia. At the time it was cheaper to source from Russia but now raw titanium costs so much more than it did in the 90s (not to mention fuel prices are higher so the shipping costs have gone up too) that you might as well just get a contractor like Lynskey to make them in the USA if you're located in north america or europe.

Maybe because most of ti frames "made in russia" i see was a crap.
Same thing with russian cars.

These frames made in Siberia. :) Maybe from Moscow titanium tubes from Rapid? ;)
