Titanium Bicycles & Custom Builders

I'm just wondering which bicycle parts are commonly made from Titanium. Is it mainly just the frame or do you also use Titanium sprockets & chains? I sell surplus titanium and I would like to become more involved with the bicycle builder.

I stock alot of titanium tubing, but I don't know which sizes are common for bicycles.

Thanks for your help.

Pretty much anything which was steel can be made from Ti.
Nuts and bolts, wheel axles and quick releases, bottom brackets, pedals waterbottle cages, saddle frames, seatposts, bars, rear cogs.
Most of these are made by speciality companies.

Hi there,

On Ebay (I know, I know) there's a manufacturer that has recently started supplying ti bike parts and he's based in Onterio, Canada.

His company are called Areolite and his website can be found at www.areolite.ca

Don't know if this helps :confused:

I know this thread is a little old now but I wondered how far you got with the titanium tube for use in bikes ? Did you find titanium to be grow / still appealing since introduction of carbon fiber etc ? Or was there still interest for custom road bikes.


Sorry quite a few questions there. Would be great to get your insights over how things have developed for titanium use in bikes over the years.

Zombie Thread Alert!

I don't expect that you will be getting a response from titaniumjoe, as he was last active on BF in 2002.

Doesn't seem to be much interest in ti bikes in the US.

Thanks Jan, sorry I didnt notice when he was online last time.

Yes I think your are right maybe titanium tube frame bikes are not popular at the moment and there are more advanced materials have now replaced them.

Titanium frames have a certain amount of demand, but that demand is pretty well filled, too. So if you want one, you can get it.

This may be the oldest zombie thread I have seen pop up here!
