WTT Seven titanium track/single speed bike



Recently purchased this, a shorter friend of mine is happily using it for now. However I am of the taller variety and this frame is 49cm st, 53cm tt.

I am looking for interesting bikes/frames of the 60cm+ category. Useful but not required properties:

1. Titanium
2. Seven or other well regarded manufacturers
3. Track/horizontal dropouts
4. Triple triangle (not interested in aluminum GTB/pulses)

For new I'd suggest altruiste.

He does a steel triple triangle. His prices are competitive especially considering the exchange rate. At 60 you may need to go custom though.

Their website is currently overrun by aggressive popups.

Are they the one that does wishbone triple tri?

If that were 1-2 cm longer I'd be in the hunt. All too often nice fixed gear framesets are lacking bottle cage mounts and a drilled fork, this one's got all the right stuff to make a great fixed gear for the road.

https://altruistebikes.com/ right now hits nasty redirects even thru ublock origin. It's fully page jacking on mobile.

I don't know why but I just don't like their wishbone design, namely the way the single pipe goes through the seattube.

I'll consider offers but it took a lot of searching to get my hands on this.

Nice bike - might be easier to sell considering finding someone who happens to have a ~60cm bike for trade probably isn't looking for a ~50cm fixie, but this forum always surprises me.

The issue is just the sheer rarity of track drop ti, especially from nice brands. Even if I end up buying a 60cm instead of trading for one I'd still keep this for friends/family.
