They’re coming…. Brodie Titanium Bikes and Frames
In 2007 we introduced our first titanium bike, the cross country (XC) Cruzado. With an oversized 3/2.5 downtube, 100mm travel fork and hydraulic disc brakes, it was a bike we all instantly fell in love with. Titanium is the perfect material for a hardtail mountain bike: it’s light, strong and has a supple ride quality that is perfect for rugged conditions on a hardtail. Titanium will never corrode and is tougher than any steel, almunium or carbon fibre bicycle; it’s a bike that will last a lifetime. With all the success we’ve had with it, we’ll now have three more additional frames/bikes offered in Ti!
The new Holeshot (Freeride hardtail) has been tested, perfected and will be available in early June. This new Holeshot will be every bit as revolutionary as the original Holeshot we brought to you in 1999. Designed for a 140mm travel fork, it sits with a 67.5° HT< and will utilize similar geometry as our current Hardass Series. It’ll give you a low stand over for clearance and a long top tube (for use with short stems) for aggressive trail riding or long epic journeys on any kind of terrain. Currently my Titanium Holeshot comes in under 25 lbs with a mid-weight wheel and tire combo.
First prototypes of the new Titanium Romax b-Team (Cyclo-cross) and Rodie (Road) will be tested this Summer and will be shown at the upcoming tradeshows/events. Although Titanium frames are expensive, they aren’t much more than some current steel frames out there and will last a lifetime; something that can’t be said of a lightweight carbon fibre frame. Each of the four frames will be offered with a subtle laser-etched branding, along with 3 separate decal options for the top tube model name (in three colours).
