For long-distance touring, this frame features an extended steerer with a stack of titanium spacers. Combined with a flat handlebar, this provides a more upright riding position that's comfortable mile after mile. The client chose V-brakes rather than discs for ease of repair in remote locales.
The integrated truss rear rack is a Titan exclusive. It is made with 14mm 3Al-2.5V (grade 9) titanium tubing - stronger than the smaller aluminum rod of mass-produced racks - with a wide area to give stable support for panniers. The unit is directly and permanently welded to the seat stays at six points for exceptional stiffness.
