    It’s interesting that some ti frame manufacturers still build their frames with huge welding seams which inevitably puts a lot of heat into the tubing while others – actually most of them – are strictly against it and try to get around with the smallest possible welds and the least possible amount of filler material. I would really love to see some results from a standardized fatigue test of a frame with big ground welds like the Legend to find out how they fare in the long run.

      Those welds are unlikely to be ground smooth – they’re most likley done by ‘smooth welding’. After the weld is done, the GTAW (or TIG) torch is run around the weld without any filler to melt the weld beads and create a smooth weld. Maybe a small amount of sanding/filing/polishing to produce a super neat joint.

      Same technique aluminium frames have been using for a while now.

        Possibly or maybe even probably, I agree. Which in turn would put even more heat into the tubing (2 times welding and another round of melting the weld again). The heat affected zone would become even bigger and the unwanted effects in that zone even worse. One could do that if – as is standard for most aluminum alloys used for bicycle frames – one would subject the frame to a heat treatment process afterwards. But I doubt that Legend does this. That’s a very complicated process for titanium frames and I know only one (relatively big) titanium frame building enterprise who has the necessary ovens and experience.
        That’s why as far as I know Passoni who also produce smooth welds do or at least did this by grinding them smooth.

    So Matt, this test bike: did someone buy it?

    • I sent it back to Cycling Projects and they were expecting to return it to Italy.

    Beautiful bike. But, with respect, these ghost building claims are used by a number of builders including Pegoretti and another bike you featured recently. To be credible they need to man up and name names.

    • Sean Doyle

      Usually they have confidentiality clause in their supply contract. If you search around enough though you may be able to find some info.

      • SteveAck

        But my point is that I shouldn’t have to search to verify their claims – they should be able to prove them if they are going to base their brand on them.

    How did you find the handlebar? I know it’s a combination of Ti and carbon. Does it ride differently from a standard carbon or alloy bar?

    • I didn’t notice anything specifically but it might have added to the ride quality of the whole bike. It certainly added to the look of the bike.

    That is a truly beautiful bike. Timeless and elegant.

    These bikes are the business, love the ride & they all handle like on rails.
