Titanium bikes from Honey?
We've been working on this project for over three years. Design, fatigue testing, ride testing, fatigue testing, redesign, more ride testing. You might think that the process would have been quicker since some of the Beekeepers have been building titanium bikes for more than thirty years. It's been a long and rewarding process that has culminated in a really unique bike design.
We are now ready to introduce our first Ti model: The Allroads Titanium. The AllTi.
Why Honey titanium when we love steel so much? It's simple; when you remove price from the bike choice decision, titanium is almost always the best solution. If you're interested in the best handling, best accelerating, best climbing, longest lasting, toughest, lowest maintenance, smoothest ride -- titanium is the answer to all of these questions, almost always.
It's important to remember that just like every material there are high and low quality sources available. Just as not every steel bike is one that you'd want to ride, a poorly designed and sourced titanium bike is a very unpleasant experience. Part of Honey's three year journey was finding ways to not sacrifice durability and ride quality while meeting a price point that makes this bike very compelling.
We'll be providing more details about the AllTi, and some other titanium bikes, in coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some pages that explain what this bike is about and why we do what we do:
- Overview of the Honey Allroads Titanium
- If your question is why titanium or steel?
- Pricing for the Allroads Titanium with Shimano and SRAM.
- Geometry and design details about the Allroads Titanium.
