The T1R and T1X introduce a new material to the FABIKE portfolio: titanium. Both frame sets have been specifically engineered to deliver comfort and confidence to the rider. The always classic Titanium tubes have been reinterpreted, giving a unique feel to this timeless frame. The full carbon fiber fork completes the set for a cycling experience unlike any other.

Oversized bottom bracket The FABIKE T1R and T1X use an over-sized bottom bracket tube with an internal diameter of 55mm. This choice provides the rider a few advantages. First off, the bigger cross section means better stiffness in the critical bottom bracket area. Second, this design choice makes it possible to use an eccentric BB while maintaining fully-internal cable routing.
Belt drive and disc brakes The seat-stays of the FABIKE T1R and T1X have been designed to welcome both a belt drive system, and the new Shimano Flat Mount standard for disc brakes. Additionally, the right side dropout has a replaceable derailleur hanger, so that it can be removed in case of a single speed or internal gear hub configuration. Both Ti frames are able to accommodate fenders.
Fully internal cable routing The FABIKE Ti frames feature fully-internal cable routing. This means that even in the bottom bracket area, the cables always stay inside the frame. This is more than just an aesthetic choice, as the cables will be protected from the elements, allowing the bike to perform better in all conditions.
