Question Titanium frame... dan heaton, zack baldwin

yo people

i am curious where i can buy that titanium frame that dan and zack use in universe 2 and defect. In valladolid, i don't able to buy many strong stuff. I have broken Koxx devil frame in 6 months and my brother already has KH07 so i don't wanna get same as him, as i can ride it too.

I break frames lots, so the ti frame looks strong. I hear that the ti frame is a custom model by dan heaton's friend who makes titanium bicycle frame. Can anyone give me contact detail for dan heaton because he does not reply to his skyoproduction email or even the company name or contact detail for his friend who make the ti unicycle frame?

thank very much
sorry for my bad english

I do not think a titanium frame would be strong because titianium is a bad metal for unicycles, because it bends easily.

you are somewhat correct bending really dosent make it weaker just more flexiable, But steel is still the strongest!!! Period no questions asked, It may not be the best but is stronger! If you are breaking frames get Steel.

Titanium is the same strength as steel, just half as stiff. And a flexing frame wouldnt really matter on a uni.

Equal weight in Titanium will be MUCH stronger than steel.

For trials, flex doesn't matter, no, as we don't have brake mounts.

However, I was never sure if Ti was actually the same strength as steel...
Are you talking about 4130 chromoly to be specific, Evan?

There are other steel alloys that could be interesting to use for unicycle frames, such as the Reynolds series. (853 and 725)

My knowlage on these types of things is very low, Though I do belive that all steels have the same strength? (or maybe the same stiffness..........Help bevan!!!)


What kind of steel are koxx frames made of?

Goodness no, else why would you pay for expensive steels when you could use mild?

For the record:

Titanium
strength: 240-370 MPa
stiffness: 120 GPa
density: 4.5 kg/dm^3

Mild Steel
strength: 400-500 MPa
stiffness: 210 GPS
density: 7.85 kg/dm^3

Sorry I don't have data for CrMo within arm's reach.

i believe that isaac le masters has the titanium frame that you speak of, and he is living here in australia. but he might have sold it to someone else recently.

Oh goodness no, i have a little book (well it's 180 A4 pages) called Howatson Lund and Todd which is the stock data book for taking in to exams. Having said that i have the standard data for steel (460 MPa and 200 GPa) in my head constantly.
