Hi Guys, thought this vid might be of interest- the frame is made using 3D hollow dropouts which are 'printed' by a 3D printer.

Ti is awesome. Ti and CX is just the perfect combination.

BTW, how does the strength of the "printed" ti compare to traditional forged or even machined dropouts?

I love this technology.

Ever since I 1st read about 3D printing I've been wanting a 1 piece printed titanium frame
