Frame Design: Titanium Alloy Tubing

On our Titanium bikes, the 2.5” 3/2.5 titanium alloy tube was essential to the Aero. When Bacchetta co-owner Rich Pinto was looking for titanium tubing during the design phase, only the 1.75” tubing was available from all the major suppliers, except one- TiSports, of Kennewick, Washington. An upright company had started a mountain bike project with TiSports and had commissioned a very expensive custom 2.5” tube. They had some left over, and it was exactly what we were looking for! It was the only tube that would allow the Aero's 47” wheelbase with the very short boom required for pedaling stiffness, and the Aero was born.
