This time around, I’ve decided to shed some light on a wave of bicycle design that’s always been moving very incognito-like, even as we speak, titanium-framed bikes. Since the 1990s, titanium has been considered a viable building material for bicycles. Why? Simply because it’s as strong as steel at nearly half the weight, and twice as strong as aluminum, not to mention its flexible properties. Oh, it’s also easier to handle than carbon fiber, but may come out a bit pricier too.
One team that has quite an array of titanium-framed bikes is Voodoo Cycles, a bicycle manufacturer that’s been around since 1994 and formed by a group of cyclists ranging in backgrounds from design to racing and retail. But, one of the beautiful things about this team is that they initially hit the market with maddening hardtails, and today, they are still at it, producing mostly hardtail bikes meant to dominate single tracks as if they were the freshest thing on the block.
Sure, they produce well-crafted full-suspension MTBs too, but hardtails have always had a special place in my heart; I think it was breaking both my arms and knocking out five teeth, all at once, that really bonds me and these bikes.
