Ti29 - Mk2 Titanium 29er


The Mk2 Titanium 29er is the same great supple frame, but with a few marked improvements.  We've ridden the original Ti29 for a couple of years, we've listened to riders who also love it, we've listened to riders who've tested it - and we've listened to what they've said!

There's no doubting the sublime ride of the Ti29 with both fixed and sliding dropouts, but the natural compliance of titanium can give too much movement for some - so we've stiffened it up in a couple of key areas without distracting from the classic style and the lively, fast ride characteristics.

The headtube has been changed - it's machined with external reinforcement, still 44mm top and bottom, but uses an external lower headset cup to facilitate taper steerers. It can be used with straight 1 1/8" steerers with a reducer crown.
The top tube has had the weld area maximised whilst keeping the classic round profile.  The down tube  is still a big stiff 45mm but has been subtly manipulated to increase weld area and improve stiffness.

The bottom bracket area has been stiffened by a subtle down tube manipulation - by making it wider at the BB junction we've improved lateral stiffness. ti29-mk2-15.jpg  ti29-mk2-6.jpg 
The chainstays are bigger in diameter, and profiled at the BB to increase tyre and chainring clearance.  Chainring clearance has been optimised to XX1 chain lines. The dropouts are investment cast giving increased weld area whilst being as light as possible. ti29-mk2-19.jpg  ti29-mk2-18.jpg 
The sliding dropouts are cnc machined from 6061 alloy and anodised black. Post mount too! ti29-mk2-13.jpg   

Designed for a 100mm suspension fork (head angle 969 degrees), it will also ride beautifully with an 80mm suspension fork, or a rigid fork (470mm length, head angle 71 degrees).

Still built from plain gauge Ti-3Al-2.5V tubing, Ti-6Al-4V dropouts.   Available with cowled fixed dropouts or sliding dropouts.  The cowled fixed dropouts keep the weight low on a standard geared (derailleur) setup.  While, sliding dropouts provide maximum versatility - can be run with a derailleur, hub gear or singlespeed.

 Geometry is based on a 470mm axle to crown fork length like our TiF36 Rigid fork -  which is equivalent to an 80mm fork sagged 10mm.  

A 100mm fork with sag will slacken the angles by 1 degree! So un-sagged - the head angle is approx. 69 degrees!!  Great trail geomtry!

Also available as a frameset with our Ti 29er fork!
