The design challenge lay in the manipulation of titanium into fully Colorado Concept Tubing. The double butting of titanium was deemed impossible just four years ago -- now every titanium frame-builder claims to do it, but only Ben Serotta knows exactly how to double butt and simultaneously swage titanium into a near weightless rocketship. The titanium supplies the suppleness, Colorado Concept brings the performance, and you wear the smile.
