Samurai Bicycle

Well that’s the story anyway.

The Samurai Bicycle The frame is made from titanium (a number of varieties) and features Ebikan welding, a technique where, instead of bending the tubes, small fan-shaped pieces are welded together, giving a slightly ribbed or corrugated look to the curves.

There are other distinctive features of this bike…

The chainstays are not horizontal, but rise up dramatically, to loop around and cradle the down tube. The down tube threads through the chainstay loop and then arcs down to meet the bottom bracket.

There is no seat tube. Intricate lattice design work joins the top tube to the head tube. The Samurai also features a belt drive, a rear disc brake, and internal cable routing.
