Is This 3D Printed Titanium Bike The Most Beautiful Bike In The World?

Is This 3D Printed Titanium Bike The Most Beautiful Bike In The World?

3D printing has been around for a number of years now, but 3D printed bike frames have always been a bit hit and miss…until now! Ollie was lucky enough to visit the workshop of legendary frame builder, Tom Sturdy, to check out his latest creation: A custom titanium bike using 3D printed lugs. This frame is an amazing feat of engineering, and it might just be one of the best looking bikes we’ve ever seen.

  1. If you loved this (which in fact I do), check out the fully 3D printed frame and forks of German brand "Falkenjagd"

  2. 9:42 I want a woman who looks at me the way Oli looks at that bike

    bossi strada ss is the best looking t.i. bike.

  5. Stunning ride. Looking forward to seeing some 3d printed ti mechs

    I’d love to see how far bike design could go using the bionic design using Ai, and 3d printing done with Porsche’s new pistons. An all metal frame to rivaling carbon weights could be imaginable, using internal support structures and only keeping the materials as thick as necessary after internal support…. The bike would cost probably a million though, so maybe I’m going too far again…

    I just like 4,9kg bike- carbon bike

  8. That is a remarkable bike. It excites in a way that carbon never did for me.

    Before seing this video I wasn’t really a fan of titanium bikes, though I must say this bike changed my mind. 3D printing titanium makes a lot of sense and I would love to ride one of these in the future.

  10. For a process with almost no geometric constraints… that’s a very conventional frame. No interesting aero/structural features

  11. Mika Hessling May 24, 2021 @ 1:44 am

    Application in rowing shells has shown composites like carbon in bike frames do loose a little bit of stiffness over time

  12. Want that bike

  13. Charles Taylor May 24, 2021 @ 1:47 am

    I wanna ride it , can I have it, Please? I’ll take good care of it.

  14. Graham Austin May 24, 2021 @ 1:47 am

    A chainstay cracked on my Ti frame – now just a decoration

  15. alessandro valdrighi May 24, 2021 @ 1:47 am

    Amazing. Why would anyone give that a thumbs down?

  16. That is the super nice of all time

  17. Gregory Ceconi May 24, 2021 @ 1:52 am

    Beautiful! No22 titanium bikes are laser etched too-beautiful, but $$$$$!

  18. 15000€ ???

  19. Brilliant work. I am really interested what machine is used for this. Can anybody share me some info?

  20. which tyre is that? marathon supreme?

  21. Efficient Equilibrium May 24, 2021 @ 1:56 am

    This bike would look beautiful even when you are getting dropped.

  22. No test ride???

  23. Carbon is junk. This is to die for.

  24. Cant afford this puppy :/ but God knows I would buy it If I had money 😀

  25. Ollie looks like a kid in a candy store!

  26. Titanium has nothing to do with ride comport it’s just the limited design choices force designers to Bild an compliant frame

    If u threat carbon or alloy property u will get similar results only with some slightly differences in weight and shape

  27. Would you ride this beautiful 3D Printed Titanium bike? Let us know in the comments below!

  28. beatifull bike….

  29. Is 3D printed titanium as strong as “forged” titanium?

  30. looks like ass, design from the cheap part of the 90’s no one wants to remember, have you even seen the rayvolt x one?

  31. Nick Stephens May 24, 2021 @ 2:07 am

    Would be concerned about the rigidity of the fork when cornering and in descent. Wondering if it being a monocoque design (including steerer tube) would increase the rigidity without compromising suppleness? Overall though, a unique and beautiful bike.

  32. so you can buy one of these 3d printers and basically print your own bikes :0 not only bikes, anything actually

  33. Anthony Shillingford May 24, 2021 @ 2:07 am

    Can we now dream about titanium Aerobikes?

  34. Not sure. Really depends on ride quality.

  35. Smithythecyclist May 24, 2021 @ 2:08 am

    Definitely not the most beautiful bike. I dont think it looks nice at all

  36. TheCelticTiger May 24, 2021 @ 2:11 am


  37. Fernando Spada May 24, 2021 @ 2:11 am

    I tink i could walk a little more………..impresive bike

  38. Horse

  39. ATLBike Chronicles May 24, 2021 @ 2:12 am

    3-d printed fixie?

  40. Nah, looks like a RED Bull can…

  41. ~£10k for a custom made bike that could literally last for decades is a dang good price!

  42. That thing is seriously beautiful 🤩

  43. I would ride it. I’ve been riding the same Litespeed Ti Classic since 1994…just keep upgrading the components. I probably have 75,000 miles on it. I also have a nice steel bike and a great carbon bike. This video has really piqued my interest. Thanks for taking the time to highlight this amazing technology.

  44. Shouldnt the cuts of 3D printing show how theese oarts are printed? As they are made with powder titanium that gers fused together, not filament based that is being cut to.

  45. Looks nice, but the geometry seems unrideable unless you’re a dwarv without a spine.

  46. Probably before you see the wooden bike.

  47. Guilherme sampaio de oliveira May 24, 2021 @ 2:27 am

    What about generative design?

  48. Aleksandr Goldyrev May 24, 2021 @ 2:27 am

    55k on to traditional ti frame always with 10 to 20 kilo backpack on it make a metal tired, so I fix it twice. it’s not forever but it’s fixable and very nice to ride

  49. Super HOT and really beautiful! Supernice!!

    No masks during the shed interview. Tsk Tsk.
