Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Quick google search reveals they're just generic chinese titanium frames, but it seems like you can find them sorta cheap, anyone have experience with these?

As much as i love Ti frames, i must admit that, at the very least Looks like poo, and probably flexes like my great-grand-father's dick.

any punters have a couple spare c-notes laying around so we can find out?

i think in terms of Value Brand-less leader > Ti-poo

Dear Bike Forum Members,

The frames you posted are fake counterfeit frames. We already have a lawsuit pending. Many companies have had their products copied in China. Not just bikes but sneakers, jackets, etc. Unfortunately our popularity has grown Internationally that now these thieves in China decided to use our brand. They tried eBay but our attorneys a while ago made them go away. Aliexpress is based out of China and well it is hard to remove this guy from that site.

PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS VENDOR. HE IS SELLING INFERIOR FAKE COUNTERFEITS.

LEADER BIKE LLC

same, but dont worry, they're not a good enough competition and were smart enough not to buy them.

The website is legitimate, it's under Alibaba.com, which is pretty much one of the biggest search engines in China. However, it is full of counterfeits.

don't own one of them but wanted one a while ago and read a bunch of reviews in the web. apparently they are alright but straight gauge tubes and in the custom option not alleyways exactly what ordered. the ti 29er forks apparently fail fatally.
not totally sure but the spicer frames look a lot like them....
i decided to save up more and go for a spectrum or lynskey or just wait till i'm over ti frames
serch for xian or xcad or something like that. there are reviews in a few forums and on velospace
