Hi!

I need some help about this frame:

https://www.fahrrad.de/fahrradteile/rahm ... 18503.html

https://www.bikester.fi/pyoranosat/runko ... 18503.html

What do you say? Is it worh that money? Is it a bargain? It is very important for me to make correct decision because 599 euors for frame is way more that i can afford,but i would stretch if it is a good deal. Thanks...

It is my first time building serious bike,and i would like to go with Ti frame for allrounder (touring,city,light offroad).

One more question...it seems like rime brake system is not suported, am i right? It says : "Suspension : 80mm" What does that mean? Is it 80mm travel or something else?

And one more
... What do you recomend for (touring,city,light offroad) MTB mechanics or ROAD mechanics?

80mm suspension probably means the frame is suspension corrected, i.e. designed around, an 80 mm suspension fork. when looking for a rigid for this must be taken into account to preserve the intended geometry of the frame.

You are correct there are no posts to hold a rim brake on the seat stays.

Ok. Thanks for the answers guys.

How bad can it be in terms of build quality? It is a suspiciously low price...Is there any way for me to check that? Some questions to ask the manufacturer?

I have 105 kg... could i have a problem with frame strength? Is it a right choice for heavy rider and occasional additional load(touring)?

I could go 3x cheaper for very nice used alu frame...what do you suggest?

Considering your weight, similar to mine, I would stay away from discount titanium frames. It is not that cheap anyhow. Ti is very hard to weld. I would stay away from aluminum as well and get a used steel touring frame, so you can run larger tires and rim brakes.
