    Titanium Track Fixed Gear Frame Builders

    I need to find someone that'll make a Titanium Fixed Gear Track Frame that'll be able to use a belt drive. Anyone know a reliable and good frame builder that could do this?

    Going to assume you are going to run this as a singlespeed since it's not recommended to run belt drive for fixed gear purposes.

    Didn't the Trek District come as a fixed gear belt drive?

    I would say the defining metric would be 120mm rear facing horizontal dropouts.

    Other frames can be hacked to work, but it's not the right way to do it.

    his point is that there is no differentiation between fixed vs SS as far as from construction goes.

    All good suggestions above.
    Where are you? Pick a builder you identify with that's close by.

    But since you asked for a personal opinion, if I wanted a Ti fixed gear I'd go here https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-G...36251933091951

    Gates does not support the use of the belt as the sole braking system.

    Welding Ti is not easy, expensive, and most don't bother for those reasons. Anyone making Ti frames has the experience, and is invested enough and willing to use it as a frame material. In that case, this
