Tripster ATR

SEAT POST: 31.6mm. SEAT CLAMP: 34.9mm. FRONT MECH: Band-on 34.9. BB: 68mm. British.

HEADSET: Integrated, 41.8ø upper, 51.8ø lower, for taper head tube. FSA No.42/ACB headset included with frame.
Both bearings are ‘ACB’, meaning ‘Angular Contact Bearings’. The head-tube seat angle is 45º.
The headset drops into a tapered seat in the head tube and is tensioned using a headset tensioner within the fork steerer. Tensioning the headset centres it on the taper and prevents any play. The larger lower bearing allows a tapered steerer and larger crown. This gives sharper response and helps reduce flex under braking.

TAPER HEAD TUBE: Machined from Ti billet. The 1.5″ lower bearing allows a tapered fork steerer and larger crown. This gives sharper response and helps reduce flex under braking. Increased head tube dia. gives more weld area at the most highly stressed point.

Ti3AL/2.5V: An aerospace grade alloy, 94% titanium, 3% aluminum and 2.5% vanadium. This is one of the strongest alloys of titanium available in a seamless tube form.

CWSR: ‘Cold Worked Stress Relieved’ tubing. The tubing is shaped cold and then goes through a process to remove the stresses built up within the tube during forming.

SKELETON-MOUNT: This disc mount was specially developed for the Tripster ATR, it is light, tough and suitable for post-mount type callipers. I.S. mount can be fitted using an adaptor.

‘ANTI ROAD SHOCK’ SEAT STAYS: The ‘hourglass’ bend, seat stays are shaped to give maximum comfort for long hours in the saddle.
