Elysium – \’Heaven\’ to the Roman (and roamin\’) Legions. This custom-drawn titanium frame is Nirvana for the cross-country purist. Built one at a time, by Chris, to order in our Vancouver fabrication facility, each frame is constructed from 3/2.5 American titanium (not \”chitanium\”, like so many others), and custom Paragon Machine Works BB shells and 6/4 drop-outs. These works of rideable art also feature a unique 6061 Al and titanium version of Dekerf\’s famous interlocking monostay/wishbone design and have a hand-brushed finish. Formidable, lightning quick, all-conquering…Illegitimae Non Carborundum… Hail, Caesar!
3/2.5 Titanium Butted Tubeset. We use 3/2.5 titanium (3% aluminum, 2.5% vanadium), which gives the best durability vs. density (weight) characteristics This allows us to create Titanium frames that are lightweight and lively.
