We're looking for some ideas about building the ultimate titanium dream bike.

Any recommendations from the room given it's Friday?

Experiment with anodizing colours onto the sections of the frame.

 

Instead of making the entire frame 'rainbow', just give a small signature band of colours on the chainstay.

Also take a look at 44 Bikes. Fascinating for a wannabe bike builder.

44 bikes.. Kristofer Henry is the guy to speak to. He is not shy to share his ramblings on 'sweet spots' on frame design and frame building. His welding and technique is amazing as well.

 

Ping him if you are serious. He is a bicycle building/designing guru who just spent a year perfecting Titanium processes.

 

The guys at Chumba USA are also worth chatting to/having a look at. Triton bikes from Mother Russia as well......

 

As far as small production/high end quality bespoke Ti bikes, these 3 stand out for me
