Still a bit retro though - see rear mech and shifters.

Where do you find a ti corratec like that?

In terms of modern bikes that and the Cycip ti (with the bullit flash gordon end caps) has to be my faves.

Someone tell me they are selling one...


This Corratec model is from 2005. The lighter one is from 2000, but the frame is the same, so i´ve changed the decals for these, ´cause i think they are better looking. I was the official distribuitor (dealer, retailer, don´t know how to say) back in 96 ´till 2000, and i still have a good relation with the factory in Germany.

Corratec still sells this Titanium frame, altough it´s not in the catalogue or in the web page. Just have to ask.

Size M weight´s 1540g, has a very racing geometry, and the ideia of the 2 top tubes (besides the unique look) is to better "spread" the rear wheel vibrations into the frame, so it´s a bit more confortable. On the track, it´s more or less like that.

Like the bike Max but especially the bottle top end caps - is there a trick to doing them?
