About Waltly

Waltly has been building titanium frames using only aerospace grade seamless 3Al-2.5V tubing since 2009, fulfilling custom orders for individuals as well as large OEM orders for bike companies. Our frames are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

Ordering a custom frame

If you are interested in a custom titanium bicycle frame, we are here to serve you.

Submit plans

Send us measurements and specifications from your preferred bike or a sketch of what you want. Use our frame price estimate form for fastest service. Your personal information will help us select the best tubing size and wall thickness to maximize your performance and comfort. We will respond with a price quote.


Pay a 30% nonrefundable deposit via PayPal or wire transfer and our draftsmen will design your frame and create CAD drawings for your approval, including details like the locations of fittings and options. We will make revisions as requested until you are satisfied that the frame design fulfills your wishes and requirements.


Once you approve the final design, we will begin the fabrication process based on the final CAD drawings. Please note that depending on how far we are into the fabrication process, additional design changes requested after this point may be difficult and/or add significantly to the cost of the frame.


Tubing is precisely cut and mitered, then TIG-welded by experienced craftsmen. We perform quality assurance checks for frame alignment and ream and face the head tube and bottom bracket. Typical build time is 35 to 45 days after the order was placed. We will email you photos of the frame as it nears completion.


Your personal custom logo can be imprinted on the downtube, top tube and/or head tube for a nominal fee. Send us your graphics in the following formats: Adobe Illustrator, SVG or high resolution 150-300 dpi JPG or PNG. After the frame is sandblasted or brushed, the logo is imprinted with the contrasting process.


Once the balance is paid, the frame is securely packed and shipped internationally with full insurance coverage against loss or damage. You will be provided with the tracking number. EMS and DHL are our preferred shipping providers. Delivery is 7 to 10 working days after shipment.


carbon fiber

Titanium is half the weight of steel, so titanium tubing can be made with slightly larger diameters without a weight penalty. Larger diameter tubing provides greater stiffness to efficiently transfer power to the rear wheel without undue flex, all without beating you up over the course of a long ride. It's a magical combination of efficiency and compliance, with geometry, add-ons and options tailored to the wishes of the customer, something that can only be done with metal frames. We also offer tubing with ovalized and special hydroformed cross sections to further fine-tune the properties of the frame.


carbon fiber

Because aluminum is much weaker and less stiff, aluminum tubing for bicycle frames needs to be large diameter to provide acceptable fatigue life. That usually creates a ride that can be harsh and tiring, especially when used with narrow, high pressure road tires. Titanium has enough strength and fatigue resistance to avoid very oversized tubes, providing a compliant, resilient ride on rough surfaces that smooths out and absorbs road buzz and small bumps alike. Steel frames, with their smaller tubes, can be almost as compliant, but aren't quite as comfortable. Steel may be real, but titanium is magical.


carbon fiber

Titanium is even more corrosion resistant than stainless steel. It can be painted or - unlike steel or aluminum - can be left without paint, powdercoat or plating, so you never need to worry about scratches. Internal cable routing is simple because the insides of the tubes are naturally impervious to rust and corrosion. Unlike aluminum, titanium has a fatigue limit, so as long as the tubing is not stressed beyond this limit or damaged, it will never fatigue. Titanium can also flex three times further than aluminum and twice as far as steel without permanent damage. Carbon fiber is very vulnerable to crash and notch damage, after which it may fail catastrophically. The epoxy matrix also degrades over the years with exposure to the UV in sunlight. A titanium frame can literally last the rest of your life, and longer.

engraved head tube

CNC engraved head tube

JAN 29, 2020

If you want something a little more permanent than a sandblasted head tube, we offer custom CNC engraving for our head tubes. Better than a riveted head badge. Milled into the titanium, it will never rust or corrode. Only available for head tubes.
