Titanium Road Bikes

Here it is: the answer to your prayers. When your quest takes you searching for the finest ride beneath the heavens, you’re ready for the DeSalvo Cycles titanium road frame. To behold one of these beauties is to witness all that is magnificent in a bicycle. To ride one is to encounter nirvana. So smooth you’ll swear the road was just paved. So light you’ll testify to a reduction in gravity. So fast you’ll praise the everlasting tail winds. No question of faith on this one: it’s pure rapture. Only problem is: you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.

We pair these wonderful frames with carbon forks to achieve a ride that is second to none. Just as with all of our frames from DeSalvo Cycles, we hand-build these one at a time to produce a frame that will last you a lifetime. Or more.

FAQ

  • Semi-Custom Sizes

    ‘Semi-custom’ is what we call our steel production bikes. We prefer to use the term semi-custom because although we have made the geometry and sizing decisions for you, there are some final choices you will make to give your bike a personal touch. Included in the price of each frame is a single color powder coat with painted logos. You will get to decide on the colors. If you would like to be more creative you can come up with a design of your choice, anything from panels to fades to flames to whatever you can imagine.

    Let us know what you would like and we will give you a quote. In addition to the finish you will also decide on the size and shape of the tubes to create a frame that fits your riding style. Cable routing, any additional braze-ons, extra water bottles, racks, or a disc brake mount are other choices you can make.

  • Fully-Custom Sizes

    Although our semi-custom frames come in many sizes, we know that there are occasions when you may want or need custom sizing or geometry. All of our frames are available as full custom for a $175 upcharge. If you decide to go with a full custom frame we will work with you to ensure you end up with a bike that fits you perfectly to increase your cycling experience.
