Materials

Dedacciai:

Italian manufacture of steel, titanium, aluminum/scandium and carbon fiber.

• K-19 titanium

Seamless, butted 3al-2.5v titanium tubing. Some builders resort to straight gauge titanium tubing as a way of keeping costs down. We choose to use only the best, most advanced titanium bicycle tubing available.

• Zero, zero superleggera, zero xl

Air hardening, low carbon microalloy. This extremely strong thin walled, butted steel tubing makes fantastic lightweight frames. Tubes are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes which makes it a natural for fine tuned custom frames.

• Zerouno

Non-heat treated version of its big brother zero. A slight reduction in tensile strength means slightly thicker tubing and increased weights. Frames on average are roughly 100 grams heavier than zero. Slightly thicker tubing works well with certain frames or for heavier riders.

• Zerouno 29er

Zerouno tubing specifically for mountain bike frames.


Reynolds:

English manufacture of steel, titanium and aluminum.

• Titanium

3al-2.5v titanium tubing. Some builders resort to straight gauge titanium tubing as a way of keeping costs down. We choose to use only the best, most advanced titanium bicycle tubing available.

• 953

Stainless steel, butted, aged frame tubing. The best strength to weight ratio in the industry. As good as steel gets.

• 853

Seamless, air hardening, heat treated steel. An industry bench mark for extremely versatile, lightweight steel tubing. Available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes for dialing in frames.

Columbus:

Italian manufacturer of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber.

• XCR

Seamless, stainless steel, triple butted frame tubing. Makes extremely strong, superlight weight frames. This tubing starts off as billet and is machined and cold drawn to size.
As good as steel gets.

• Spirit

(suggested rider weight limit of 200 lbs)
Niobium alloy, triple butted tubing. This super strength steel tubing allows for wall thicknesses down to 0.38mm. One of the lightest steel tube sets available.

• Life

Niobium alloy, triple butted tubing. Similar to spirit. Slightly thicker tube walls and increased variety of shapes and sizes.

• Life 29er

Life tubing specifically for mountain bike frames.

• Zona

25CrMo4 asymmetric reinforced steel tubing. Moderate weight, high strength tubes with great reliability and fatigue life.

• Chromor

25CrMo4 steel tubing. This slightly thicker version of zona is perfect for track, fixie, and urban commuter frames.


True temper:

• S3

(suggested rider weight limit of 200 lbs) Heat treated, air hardening tubing. This american made super steel produces some of the lightest steel frames available.

• Ox Platinum

Air hardening, heat treated steel tubing. Another american made tube set with a wide variety of shapes, sizes and wall thicknesses lends itself well to a wide variety of frames..

• Easton scandium

 

• Easton 7005 aluminum
