Titanium bikes

Retrofit prices and options

For titanium frame S&S retrofits we measure the inside diameter of your bike's tubing and machine the couplers to fit tightly inside. Then we insert the couplers and TIG weld up the seams. We blast or polish the tubes for a seamless finish.

 

We can round out just about any oddly-shaped tubing to accommodate couplers with no loss of strength or performance - but please check with us first if your frame has unusually shaped tubing.

About 3/4" of tubing is removed for each coupler. The couplers  add about 6-7 oz per pair.  We recommend using teflon grease on the threads about twice a year, more if you ride in wet and dirty conditions all the time. Each retrofit package includes a coupler wrench.

Ti is a great option for a travel bike, since there's no paint to scratch or ferrous metals to rust. For painted ti bikes we recommend leaving the area around the coupler bare.

At present our wait time for titanium retrofits is around 4 weeks.
