Where can I get Titanium Sports Frames (Besides CC)?(7 posts)

Where can I get Titanium Sports Frames (Besides CC)?Fez

I have heard good things about Titanium Sports Frames. They used to supply Mongoose, but not any more. Do they supply anyone else besides Colorado Cyclist (Douglas)?

Titanium Sports website has clearance frames, but not in my size. Where else can I find these titanium frames?

One other thing...Sampson Sports sells their own line of ti frames/bikes. I'm not sure if these are made by TiSports or not. I saw my first one in person the other day and thought it was incredibly nice looking and with really finely done welds. Frames start at $1200 I believe.
have you tried contacting Ti Sports?sn69

I've emailed them questions in the past, and they've always responded quickly. They told me they build frames in batches, so perhaps they can tell you when their next production run will be, although the FFBR00 frame currently seems to be in stock in all sizes.

In addition to CC's Douglas frames, their bikes have been rebadged as Mongoose, Bontrager, Dean and a few others. Dean does their own fab now and, along with Sampson, represents one of the best values in quality ti coupled with exceptional build. Ask Gregory Taylor or Ed Nessism on this board. (I ride Dean steel, but I've seen their ti in person...very nice indeed.)

I think Sampson imports his frames, he use to get them from England I believe, not sure where he gets them from now.

the close up photos on Sampson's site show "Made in the USA" stickers on the frame. That could just refer to the tubing, which I'd guess is either Sandvik or Alcolyte, but the actually assembly could very well be stateside. Also, I noted the Breezer style drop outs--a very nice touch indeed.
