I'm looking for a high quality fabricator or frame builder who can weld titanium rear disc mount to my Ti frame. Searched the web for an hour but didn't find. Shropshire or anywhere around Birmingham would be ideal but i'm willing to travel much further for decent quality if needed. Thanks for any advice!

Enigma are the only cycle Ti specialists I know of, failing that it's aerospace fabricators.

My Vit T has a non-magnetic (cant swear its Ti but looks it)tab that was done by a company in yorkshire - let me do some searching on my old threads to find it. I didnt have this done myself so cant recommend or not - just say it seems to work.

Its not killed me yet. Although I do have the urban retrobike #3 in London this weekend :)

Not wanting to state the obvious, but this weekend the country's finest are all assembled in one place http://www.bespokedbristol.co.uk/ probably the easiest way to find someone to do the job for you.

maybe search for a Ti TIG welder, rather than a specialist cycle one.
