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.
