With the Oregon Manifest’s Bike Design Project going on this week, Industry and Ti Cycle‘s entry is probably the most high-tech in terms of construction technique. All other bikes were brazed by traditional frame building techniques, yet had a design language that spoke of a far more modern assemblage process.
While I was really stoked on the Teague x Sizemore bike, the Ti Cycle’s construction process is truly innovative, boasting a connected, 3-d printed titanium manufacturing method. The parts for the frame that are titanium are printed and then welded together, a process that piqued my interest when I first saw it… Especially with all the integration built right into the frame and cockpit.
The team at Industry sent over their studio shots, as well as other information, but I really just want to focus on the bike itself, because to me, it is the most unique frame in the competition.
There’s still time to vote on your favorite design at the Bike Design Project and see more photos of the process and the bike below.
