A track bike frame with 3d printed titanium lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

This method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time.
You could change the geometry to what ever fits you best, then the lugs gets generated by a software.
The generated 3D files are produced with laser-cutting process. Afterwards the printed parts need to be finished and bonded to the tubes.

Way cool. 3D printed titanium lugs, carbon fiber, sweet-ass track geometry with lightweight wheels. This is a project to look out for.

If you recall correctly, Mike Chacon had a collab with Undefeated and Leader Bike and finally, it’s all done. Check out the pictures.

“Recently over at Leader we collaborated with Undefeated, a technical apparel company that sponsors our rider Mike Chacon, to create two unique Leaders for Mike to ride with. Following the concept of “home/visitor” team jerseys, Undefeated created the color schemes and decals for a bright orange 735, and a matte black Hurricane with 3M reflective stickers. Mike competed in Red Bull Ride+Style with the Hurricane, and will be using the two bikes in upcoming projects.”
