Our titanium fixie has been designed as a classic urban single speed bicycle frameset.
The Titanium Fixie is available on SPECIAL ORDER. The usually delivery time is 8 to 10 weeks. We ask a £300 deposit, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want one.
A double-butted titanium 3Al-2.5V alloy tubeset from Reynolds demonstrates extreme fatigue and corrosion resistance - ideal properties for a year-round urban cruiser. It's light-weight yet extremely strong, with an optimal elastic modulus for absorbing bumps in cracked-up city roads.
The geometry sits between the familiar road bike and a classic track set-up. We borrow a slightly steeper headtube angle and smaller BB drop from the track for agile handling, but keep the road bike headtube height and chainstay length for a longer wheel-base, retained stability and more comfortable position.
Frame and fork allow tyre clearance of up to 28mm width because bigger tyres roll fast and can take on rough streets, grass shortcuts, tow-paths and back alleys. For safety in the city the frame features braze-ons for both front and back rim brakes should you choose to run a freewheel.
Like all GOSFORTH bike frames, the styling is minimal brushed metal with smooth welds and bead blasted logos. A time-honoured horizontal top tube and Chris King No Threadset completes the look of this heirloom worthy frameset.

This frame occupies the middle ground between track and road geometry for a perfectly nimble urban fixed wheel bike.
While some track bikes can feel twitchy due to a steep angles and short wheel bases, this set-up goes half-way towards the road geometry you're used to for a more assured ride while maintaining the lively feel a fixie should offer.
