The OTM Ti seeks to challenge the assumption that Titanium is a material reserved for 40+ mamils or super boutique builds.
Titanium has a special place in our hearts. The material enjoyed a brief stint of pro tour success years ago, and at one time was the go to frame material for high end builds. Alas by the mid 2000s carbon fiber quickly dominated every facet of cycling tech. We built our first OTM Ti to scratch the itch of curiosity. Surely the poetic waxing about such a material was merely self-justification for spending so much cash on a metal bike. Built with the intention of existing as a B bike/rain bike, the OTM blew our minds, titanium is special. Soon we found ourselves riding this frame all the time, racing, training, traveling.
The OTM Ti is built with aerospace grade 3al 2.5v titanium. Titanium is smoov, and there isn’t a material that looks as good, or timeless raw.
A signature detail on all of our models is direct mount rim brakes. Direct mount rim brakes are superior to standard caliper, while at the same time retaining the true simplicity of a rim brake paired with a quick release. We also offer OTM Ti in a OTM TiDi variant, aka disc baby, disc.
Titanium eludes the average cycling enthusiast because of its high price tag. We are proud to offer our base frameset starting at $1599 USD. Scratch your titanium itch.
Our signature OTM Ti Frameset is a neo retro grouch’s dream; custom geometry, 3al 2.5v titanium tubing, direct mount rim brakes (hey still rim brakes, we already can hear your retro grouch fingers smashing out a comment on your keyboard!), external cable routing, BSA BB, and tire clearance up to 28s. These frames truly define versatility, put some 32 spokes on and ride it all day, carbon tubies for a weekend race, the OTM is your oyster, shuck it. Want disc brakes instead, you got it, reach out to us, let’s build your classic.
