Framebuilders Thinking about a custom frame? Lugged vs Fillet Brazed. Different Frame materials? Newvex or Pacenti Lugs? why get a custom Road, Mountain, or Track Frame? Got a question about framebuilding? Lets discuss framebuilding at it's finest.

retrofit ti frame for travel

I've got a Ti frame that apparently has a down tube that is too oval to fit S&S couplers.
Any chance someone on here knows about a frame builder that could install couplers like ritchey makes?
Also, maybe a simple clamping system could be installed like the "old" panasonic bikes had?
Thanks for the help!

are you sure about that? I would ask bilenky (assuming you are within shipping distance)

i checked with bilenky, he confirmed that the down tube is to oval for S&S coupler.
can't believe that there is no bike builder out there that can make this work... :-(
