  • Following up with another prototype of a Titanium road disc. This belongs under the Stribe brand thats run together with @larsenroad. The frame is being welded and almost all of the parts are collected. The frame and fork will fit 32mm tires (depends on the rim width) and have rather fair geo. It will have flatmount disc brakes, 44mm headtube, straight seatstays and semi classic geo. Since thsi is the first prototype, the geo will most like be tuned for the next one. Cant wait tot test it-

    I will ride this prototype for training and club-races and since this is one of the last bikes i will spend money on in some years, the parts list looks something like this:

    Handlebar - Deda zero 100 shallow / Deda superleggero 42cm
    Stem- Kalloy Uno
    Seatpost - Deda Superleggero
    Saddle - Specialized Toupe Pro or Berk Lupina Padded
    Seatpost binder - Carbon TI
    Bottle cages - King cage Titanium
    Groupset - Etap Hydro
    Wheels - MCFK 55mm with 240 straightpull
    Crankset - Quarq Dzero carbon (or Rotor Power2max)
    Fork - Enve disc 2.0
    All bolts - titanium
    Headset - Cane creek slamset
    Tires - Schwalbe pro One 28mm / Compass Stampede Pass 32mm (Tires set up tubeless)

    Brand color scheme is still not set, nor the paint split. Still playing around with colors and putting togehter collages with bits and pieces in AI. More color options to come. The painting is done in Norway by myself and the fabrication of the prototype is done where the Hardtail prototype is done. (Waltly)

    The blue frame is not decided, still playing with colors.

  • This.

  • Interested to see how this comes out. Personally - just my opinion - it seems like a shame to paint titanium. But the MTB in the other thread looked great.

  • seems like a shame to paint titanium

    Hides the cracks so much better though. #bike4lyf

  • ok. frame is done, bike built up.. so far, it rides well. more than stiff enough. descends on rails and is comfy on long rides. still needs some tiny tweaks on the geo and more testing. (The Weather in Norway is not great at the moment)!

  • Very smart indeed, let down only by the aesthetics of the wheels, in my opinion.

  • @JB. yes. The grahics on the wheels need to go. Also wanna go down to low profile wheels.

  • @Heldring thanks. Turned out pretty ok. Weight is also on point. 7.97kg inkl pedals and garmin mount!

  • Yeah I'm very keen on this. Half-painted works really well.

  • Looks very smart indeed!
    Love the paint and reckon it would look great with a lower profile wheelset. Is there much toe overlap?

  • There's a good balance between ti and paint on the frame IMHO. I'd love to see the forks and stem painted white for a more integrated look (and why not a ti seatpost) but it's very nice as it is.

  • Can you black out the logo's too plz :)

  • I actually thought about tagging you in my post, since you're obviously so good at this! Love your work, don't ever stop, etc etc...

  • I don’t understand how you have done that in your spare time??

    Being unemployed.

  • excellent work. Would leave the wheels. But tidy up the leaves.

  • Nice one man

  • Maybe we should hire @Tijs instead of painting the actual bikes.

  • Thanks @Tijs!
    The wheels are going to be blacked out. Black decals in the making. The frame is maybe beeing repainted this winter, and then also the stem and maaaaybe the fork.

  • Damn that looks good - did I interpret this correctly by saying this is a Waltly built ti frame?

  • You must be reaching the age where you start to think about buying a titanium road bike now
