The Duetti T9 Bicycle Frame Delivering a highly personalized bicycle requires that we have a wide range of control over sizing and geometry configurations of the bicycle frame, but also a very consistent pallet range of tube weight and stiffness. That's why our bicycles are principally built from metals. The sophisticated structures that we utilize can be reliably and accurately replicated in titanium, steel and aluminum alloys. Not so much the case with carbon manufacturing.
If you could combine the best qualities of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber while weeding out the drawbacks of the same materials, you would have something remarkably similar to titanium. Hands down, it’s the metal with the mettle best suited to soothe and survive the rough urban jungles and flying debris that are featured in our riding today. Not only is it the toughest of all bicycle materials and completely inert (zero corrosion from anything), it’s also inherently strong, light and lively.
The most common titanium alloys in bicycle frame manufacturing are 3/2.5 and 6/4. Our titanium, primarily 3/2.5, begins a series of performance enhancements in a condition that most bike builders consider finished. The Duetti T9 is the great grandson of the Serotta Colorado Legend Ti- the first titanium bicycle to feature internal and external engineering in tube design (1993). Now, with more than 20 years of evolution, thousands of custom bicycles and hundreds of race victories behind it, the T9 sets a new high mark in titanium engineering with a range of tubes that fully showcases this wonder material’s full potential. Most importantly, you can feel it when you ride- responsive, smooth, confidence inspiring.
The Serotta SF9 Disc-brake Carbon Fork Not to be under-considered, the front fork should by no means be considered a commodity component of your bicycle. Think of it as the tip of the spear that is you and your bicycle. It is the first point of connection to the road and usually too, the first point of any impact. How it handles with front loading, side loading, the offset forces of applying disc brakes at high and low speeds while riding straight and while cornering are a few of the behaviors we consider. Then we consider how the fork’s flexing interacts with the movement of the frame and your wheels under all these conditions… it’s complicated. And its why long ago I concluded that generic forks were not an option- for handling and safety, we have developed our own forks. We utilize the most experienced manufacturers and third-party test labs, like Germany’s EFBE, where our road forks are tested to exceed both road and MTB standards.
All Serotta bicycle specifications are personalized to each cyclist at the time of ordering. Gearing, crank length, handlebar and stem sizing along with final tire size will be determined during our review of your fit & personal preference documentation. Please note, pedals and saddles are not included in your initial quotation due to the wide range of personal preference. We are happy to add your favorite selections to the bike order, or you can provide them on your own.
