Default The Triton's competition


I have a friend who's in the metal fabrication business and is
interested in hearing about possibly making unicycle frames and
seatpost's. He can get a hold of ANY metal and welds so good it makes
me cry. I talked with him today and tried to explain how he could try
and break into the unicycle market and he seems really interested.

So I need some help from you guys on how I should go about getting him
to commit to doing this. He lives and operates his business here in
Texas so if your looking for a high quality frame, shipping won't kill
you. He's already commmited to making dual-gusseted seatposts, but I
really want him to make some ti frames.

It would be awesome if I could get some suggestions or help from you
guys, as this could benifit everyone here in the U.S if he does this
thing. Anyone have any ideas for the frame? The seatpost shouldn't be
too hard, but I'm not an engineer so help is appreciated.

unique, i will try to think something up...

I want a magnesium frame, hopefully a shin friendly one and for a 36"
wheel. Would be fricking sick.

Hmmm, I'd have to talk to him about mag frames. I know he can weld just
about every metal there is, including ti, but I never asked about
magnesium.

I'm sure if you'd be willing to pay he'd be willing to make it!

Thanks so far for the interest though guys, and keep it coming

It's similiar to welding aluminum, not nearly as hard as Ti

Then it shouldn't be a problem. The main thing we need though as of
right now is an actual spec. sheet on the frame itself. Seatpost's will
be fairly simple, but a frame is different. That's why I'm hoping somone
with a decent concept for structural intergrity and fame design will
chime in.

Man that would awesome if you could. We can worry about the final
touches later (polish,etching,ect.) but like I said we need a solid
design first and foremost. We also might not just be limited to one
design either so keep that in mind

I would ask Sponge for his design for the Triton frames. That would be a
good place to start.
